'Ultraviolet' digital rights locker coming this fall?

'Ultraviolet' digital rights locker coming this fall?Last July, Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), a syndicate of technology, cable and entertainment companies introduced their long awaited cloud-based digital locker today, dubbing the service Ultraviolet.

Today, it appears the group is readying Ultraviolet for a fall launch.

When it launches, the service will allow users to stream their music and movies anywhere, as long as it is legally purchased.

Content providers will get to use one cloud-based platform to create a set of Web standards for DRM on digital content.

Says Mark Teitell, the general manager of UltraViolet (via RWW):

Consumers are looking for a better value proposition to own and collect digital movies and TV shows - a proposition that provides downloads, streaming and physical copy viewing options which are accessible on multiple platforms.

The files will play on all devices that conform to Ultraviolet standards, including Blu-ray players, HDTVs, smartphones, tablets and PCs.

A full list of DECE members is here: DECE Wiki. The two largest notable missing names are Disney and Apple, which offer rival services.
