German replicator CDA Datentr?ger Albrechts is curently providing to its DVD Video customers "Live-Digital-Copy" onto DVDs.
LiveDigitalCopy, possibly the first "managed copy" solution for DVD video, allows end users to view movies without a DVD on mobile devices like cellular phone, iPod or PlayStation Portable.
With the LiveDigitalCopy (LDC) software it is possible to dynamically transcode the feature film or specific parts of the DVD into an other digital format - while controlling the usage rights and preventing unauthorized duplication. The rights owner can define how many digital copies are granted to the user and which output devices are allowed. The devices can be - for example PCs, portable video player, cellular phones or game consoles.
The dynamic Live-Digital-Copy feature works also with standard CSS-protected DVDs. LiveDigitalCopy does not require any changes on the original master and
can be applied to every regular DVD-Video. Furthermore the software supports multiple audio languages and subtitles.
LiveDigitalCopy has been developed by the copy protection specialist Protect Software GmbH.
