During his keynote at the Intel Developer Forum, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich talked about how the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor (Kaby Lake) will make 4K videos more readily accessible to everyone, providing deeply realistic, crystal clear images and videos.

As part of this effort, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) and Intel announced that they are collaborating to make SPHE’s premium movies in 4K available on PCs powered by the upcoming 7th Gen Intel Core Processor, taking advantage of the latest media capabilities and Intel hardware security technologies offered by this next generation processor.

Movie fans will be able to stream SPHE’s premium 4k movies for smooth playback and long battery life on devices based on the next generation 7th Gen Intel Core Processor that will be available later this year.
