With the evolution of new media technologies and consumers’ increasing demand for high-quality video, the 4K resolution of live sports and movies is all set to render new experiences to computers. By making use of some of the most advanced technology offered on 7th Generation Intel Core processors and Intel Software Guard Extensions, Intel and NeuLion are going to deliver the playback of live and on-demand 4K UHD sports content on computers.
Even today, computers are the most popular devices to watch online content. The new offer would integrate Intel SGX with the NeuLion Digital Platform. This would facilitate customers to securely stream their 4K UHD content to the end users having 4K capable, Intel-powered computers with 7th Generation Intel Core processors.
Apart from this, the NeuLion Digital Platform also allows a wide range of functionalities. These include digital video management, distribution, and monetization for customers who own premium content like NFL, NBA, World Surf League, Unvision Deportes, Euroleague Basketball, etc.

As the streaming of 4K content requires a very high level of security, this collaboration would enable Intel SGX to render a highly secure experience to the customers. Intel SGX is a set of CPU instructions for computers that support various security use cases including authentication, trusted transactions, and media security.
“Driving the distribution of 4K resolution of live sports and movies to computers will fuel a huge demand for data in the cloud, and also accelerate access to high-quality video to a broader market of consumers,” said Doug Fisher, senior vice president and general manager of the Software and Services Group (SSG) at Intel Corporation. “We are very pleased that Intel® Software Guard Extensions will enable NeuLion to serve this demand – and ensure the secure delivery of 4K on 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processors.”
Intel expands the boundaries of technology to make the most amazing experiences possible.
