DECE ready to put on UltraViolet show

The Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) finally appears ready to roll out its UltraViolet digital content licensing program.

According to NewTeeVee, the launch should come this fall after the DECE sorted out all of the complex back-end issues involved in enabling content rights access and viewing across multiple platforms.

At its best, UltraViolet could raise the value of multiple alternative set-top boxes and the TV Everywhere concept because consumers will be able to buy movies from one source and not worry about compatibility with their particular video player, or transferring the content to another video player they may own. Users simply can sign up for an UltraViolet account--a "digital locker" in DECE-speak--which contains their distribution rights.
