Macrovision introduces CDS-300™ multi-level security and rights management solution for music CDs


Macrovision Corporation (Nasdaq: MVSN), the world’s leading developer and vendor of digital rights management (“DRM”) and copy protection technologies, announced today that it will release the CDS-300™ multi-level protection and rights management solution for music CDs in 1Q 2003.

CDS-300 — the first combined Midbar/Macrovision product — provides multi-level security that inhibits unauthorized file sharing and piracy, while allowing consumers to make limited copies of rights-protected music CDs to their personal computers. With CDS-300, users can make a back-up copy of the original encrypted disc on any PC through the Microsoft® Windows Media® Player and listen to their music without the CD present.

CDS-300 includes the following features:
Enables playability on PCs through the Microsoft Windows Media Player.
Users may copy files to their Windows Media Library for playback without the original CD.
Creates barriers to “open source” Red Book audio sessions.
Music files will not play if distributed over the Internet or e-mailed.
No Internet connection or additional plug-ins necessary for the consumer.
Maintains original audio quality.

For the past 15 years, Macrovision has been the trusted partner in copy protection and rights management to the home video, entertainment software, video gaming, and digital pay-per-view cable and satellite industries. Macrovision has worked in partnership with the leading content companies worldwide to develop and deploy technologies that serve the interests of both rights holders and consumers, delivering solutions that provide an optimum balance between effectiveness and playability. Macrovision’s copy protection and rights management technologies have been utilized on over 4.7 billion CDs, DVDs and VHS cassettes. Its CDS™ copy control solutions for music CDs are currently in use on over 60 million audio CDs worldwide.

“The music industry can’t afford a third successive year with a 5-10% drop in revenues. Our customers and partners in the music industry are working overtime to deliver high entertainment value and creative content to their customers while, at the same time, working to ensure content creators are paid fairly for their creative works and are making substantial investments in the sales, marketing and distribution of their music products,” said Mark Belinsky, senior vice president and general manager of Macrovision’s Music Technology Division. “Macrovision is working hard to develop and deliver a full complement of copy protection and DRM solutions to achieve these important objectives.”

Macrovision acquired Midbar Tech Ltd. in December 2002. The combined Macrovision and Midbar engineering and R&D teams bring significant technical and support resources to the new music technology division.
