New York, NY (PRWEB) June 7, 2010
The STR3EM Team announces the deployment of the STR3EM Ecosystem, a multimedia system designed for Internet delivered products from global content providers. Designed to work with any machine running the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and currently available on Microsoft Windows, STR3EM nets a distribution platform of over 1 billion compatible machines worldwide. This marks the first working and available digital ecosystem in contrast to other initiatives currently still in development from Disney's Keychest and mega conglomerate group the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE).
Following in the tradition of optical media, STR3EM transfers physical ownership of products to consumers using a built-in automated key redemption system, as well as a patented access rights system and format infrastructure. In addition, an influx of set-top-box and custom machines designed to play STR3EM media presents expanded opportunities for licensing with hardware manufacturers.
Utilizing an application that converts a home computer into a retail entertainment machine, STR3EM allows content providers to distribute video and music products electronically in a single file, offering quality equal to a retail CD, DVD, Blu-ray, and future home delivery formats such as 4K cinematic 3D. Through integration with Facebook® Connect consumers can access commercial files and other streaming locations within the Ecosystem on any compatible machine simply by logging in with their Facebook username and password. With close to 500 million established users, the STR3EM Ecosystem allows Facebook users to pay a single price for permanent access to a movie or TV show across an unlimited array of digital platforms and devices—from the Web, to mobile gadgets like iPhones and cable services that allow on-demand viewing. It could also facilitate other services such as online movie subscriptions and rentals.
Compatible format distribution methods include:
- Web Servers and CDN
- Optical Media
- Flash Memory Media
- Portable Hard Drives
- Streaming Subscriptions
In addition to a patented file format with applications in the motion picture and music industries, television, pay-per-view, and higher education, STR3EM utilizes a classified level of AES encryption to protect multimedia for governments and corporations.
A KodeKey Password System allows content providers to control unit inventories by generating and selling password lists to retailers, and presents the opportunity to sell wholesale similar to physical optical disc products. KodeKey provides automated licensing and billing managed completely by Amazon Web Services. This solution provides access management to STR3EM products by facilitating three types of retail business models:
2) 1-7 day rentals
Variable data printing products that are compatible with KodeKey distribution include magazines and newspapers, retail cards and hangers, and paper printing in-store kiosks.
Products redeemed with a KodeKey never expire and are customized with the user’s Facebook ID for easy disaster recovery from a hard drive crash or system failure.
For sensitive and classified video, a Screener Mode provides a secure playback environment by only providing access to friends listed in the content provider’s Facebook account. Upon playback, the user’s name is watermarked on the video window, and only a single mouse click to the top or bottom of the video window can close it. Screener Mode disables all keyboard functions and will only operate in full-screen view.
For highly sensitive material, STR3EM offers super-strong 1,344,000-bit key certificates. With KKEYCERT Password Certificates, users are required to load a KKEYCERT before material can be accessed after entering a KodeKey Password. With each new STR3EM created, a unique certificate can be generated.
