The Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE LLC) is a consortium of major Hollywood studios, consumer electronics manufacturers and retailers, network hardware vendors, systems integrators and Digital Rights Management (DRM) vendors. Announced in September 2008 by consortium President and Sony Pictures Entertainment CTO Mitch Singer, DECE was chartered to develop a set of standards for the digital distribution of premium Hollywood content.[1] The consortium intends to create a set of rules and a back-end system for management of those rules that will enable consumers to share purchased digital content between a domain of registered consumer electronics devices.[2]

Disney and Apple are not members. Disney recently launched its own Digital Locker called Disney Movies Anywhere, powered by Keychest. Disney Movies Anywhere currently connects to three providers; iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu.

DECE's "digital locker" system is called UltraViolet.[3][4]
