Cinemo to Usher in a New Era of Automotive Infotainment at CES 2022

World premiere of “Infotainment to Go!” as Cinemo repositions the vehicle to be a connected powerhouse and centralizes the car as a unified media hub


Las Vegas, Nevada, January 4, 2022 - Cinemo, a global leader in high performance and automotive grade multimedia playback, streaming, media management, connectivity, and cloud middleware, has announced it will be showcasing its latest game changing infotainment technology at the upcoming CES 2022 taking place from January 5th to 8th, 2022.

A range of Cinemo solutions will demonstrate just how Cinemo is changing the face of cockpit enrichment with systematic super aggregation of online and offline services and media content. VOD (Video on demand) premium content can be brought into the car whilst Dolby Atmos integration allows accessto immersive audio galvanizing the listening experience. “At Dolby, we see a lot of demand from our prospective customers for Android Automotive OS. It is thus great to see that with our continued partnership, Cinemo is enabling Dolby Atmos on an Android Automotive system, further paving the way for the adoption of Dolby Atmos for cars” said Andreas Ehret, Director Automotive at Dolby.

Cinemo’s recent collaboration with VOXX Automotive and Jeep® boasts Multi-Seat sharing in the new Wagoneer, which brings an array of features to add adaptability and mobilize front and rear seat connectivity to create an individualized holistic platform. “Cinemo enables new innovative use casesfor multi-screen entertainment enabling families to enjoy movies and shows on the road” said Ed Mas, President, VOXX Automotive Corporation.

Cinemo’s next generation technologies have also taken use cases such as Jukebox, Multi-user gaming, Karaoke with Stingray, and given them a cohesive foundation in the car. “We know that there is a real desire amongst drivers for new in-car entertainment experiences like karaoke,” said Louis-Robert Lemire, Vice President Strategic Operations and Acquisitions of Stingray. “We are thrilled to pursue our growth in the automotive industry with the help of Cinemo to bring our bestin-class karaoke experience to Linux and Android Automotive platforms.”

World Premiere at CES “Infotainment to Go”
CES 2022 will also see the World premiere of Cinemo’s disruptive “Infotainment to Go!”, the first full cloud-based IVI-as-a-Service where Cinemo decouples infotainment from the vehicle so car vendors can continuously offer their latest infotainment experience, in any car, on any device, extending the vehicle’s lifetime and without requiring an in-vehicle update.

“We are very excited to premiere ‘Infotainment to Go!’ at CES 2022” said Richard Lesser, CEO of Cinemo. “As we enter an impressive phase of convergence and autonomy, Cinemo is a key differentiator driven by steadfast future-proof technology. We look forward to meeting our partners and presenting the future of Infotainment!”

ProvenRun and Cinemo to demonstrate World's first DRM implementation of the new GlobalPlatform Secure Media Path Read more

ProvenRun and Cinemo to demonstrate World's first DRM implementation of the new GlobalPlatform Secure Media Path

Unique collaboration to enable Widevine media playback on Secure Media Path (SMP) Protection Profile


Paris, France and Karlsruhe, Germany January 3rd, 2022 – ProvenRun, a global leader in embedded security, and Cinemo, a global leader in high performance and automotive grade multimedia playback, streaming, media management, connectivity, and cloud middleware, have announced the availability of World's first Secure Media Path Protection Profile implementation based on ProvenCore (ProvenRun’s flagship ultra-secure OS) compliant with the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) Protection Profile and Cinemo’s Widevine L1 Trusted Application (TA).

The combination of Cinemo in-vehicle multimedia software with ProvenRun ProvenCore, will be presented at the CES in Las Vegas 2022 as a world first.

Over the last years, movie studios have called out the need to protect premium multimedia content (such as 4K, Ultra-HD, HDR and "early window" digital movie releases). Two of the main challenges have been the fragmentation of devices from which this content could be played (such as set-top boxes, smartphones/tablets, HDMI sticks) and the lack of an industry-adopted security baseline for these devices.

The TEE, widely available in today's media devices, has become the essential digital content protection component. It is used as a hardware-protected "root of trust" inside a consumer device, safeguarding cryptographic keys and media content rights/entitlements.

In 2021 a GlobalPlatform Premium Content working group released a Secure Media Path Protection Profile (SMP PP), which leverages the generic TEE Protection Profile and captures the industryspecific security needs and reference architecture for premium content protection. This architecture supports virtually any Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution. To conform to the SMP PP, a Vendor of a premium device DRM solution will have to rely on a TEE and fulfil the SMP PP Security functional and Security assurance requirements, including the preparation of documentation and tests to be used as evidence by the security evaluation laboratory.

With the SMP PP, the movie industry can now reach its objective of a homogeneous security baseline for premium content protection across devices.

Within this SMP PP framework, ProvenRun has a DRM solution ready to be certified on any chip or ECU. The secure protected media path is entirely protected by ProvenCore itself. Additionally, ProvenRun has prepared a set of documentation and tests aimed at security evaluation following GlobalPlatform or Common Criteria scheme based on the SMP PP. For this work, ProvenRun leverages on its expertise in the preparation of security evaluation and on its EAL 7 security evaluation of ProvenCore, the highest level of Security achievable with Common Criteria.

Cinemo automotive solutions are being deployed in millions of cars worldwide and adopted by world’s leading car manufacturers. The combined reference implementation to be demonstrated leverages Cinemo's award-winning media streaming and playback engine using ProvenRun SMP PP compliant TEE and Cinemo's Widevine DRM implementation, raising the bar for embedded digital 2 content security and paving the path for the latest premium content to be available in high-resolution video and spatial audio in the car.

For a complex use-case such as premium Video-on-Demand streaming in the car, having pre-tested and complete solutions brings numerous advantages to the automotive maker or Tier-1’s: reduced risk and time-to-market, better playability and robust security.
