MPA teams for digital org in Asia

Duo bows Center for Content Protection

The Motion Picture Assn. and Singapore’s Media Development Authority will today bow the Center for Content Protection covering the Asia-Pacific region.

Initiative was unveiled at the Digital Future Symposium in Singapore, where the CCP will be based.

Org will be a clearinghouse for information covering tech firms, content providers and distributors.

Increased digital distribution has created a need for information and standards among manufacturers and content companies.

“Asia’s content sector is at a different stage of digital transition,” said MPA senior veep-chief technology officer Jim Williams. “This region is a big manufacturer of digital equipment. Other regions have similar organizations already.”

Initially, CCP will be funded by the two founders, though ultimately they expect it to be funded and driven by its members.

Org is not “a lobby group; it is more an opportunity for diverse interests to resolve a common way of doing business,” said Isa Seow, the MPA’s director of technology initiatives.
