SafeAudio is a 100% software-based, audio copy protection solution for music CDs, jointly developed by Macrovision and TTR Technologies . SafeAudio ensures excellent playability across all playback platforms and causes unauthorized copies to lose their entertainment value.
Version 3 offers the following new features:

Support for multi-session CDs with third party Digital Rights Management (DRM) options, allowing ``fair use'' by consumers on PCs and digital audio players
Enhanced mastering, verification and testing tools requiring no change or addition to existing production lines
``Compatibility has always been Macrovision's highest design goal and in SafeAudio V3 we have achieved this. With over 15 years of experience in copy protection, Macrovision has developed the wide spectrum of copy protection strengths needed by the music industry. The breakthrough with SafeAudio V3 is the ability to selectively implement different levels of security using our `AudioLok(TM)' technologies, by track if needed. SafeAudio V3 offers an integrated copy protection solution that supports DRM technologies,'' said Brian McPhail, vice president and general manager of Macrovision's Consumer Software Division.
Macrovision's SafeAudio Reseller Program enables CD replicators to provide the SafeAudio V3 copy protection solution to their music customers who want to purchase replication services and audio CD copy protection from a single source.
