Macrovision announces SafeDisc copy protection for DVD-ROM


Macrovision, the leading provider of copy protection and digital rights management (“DRM”) technologies, today unveiled its new DVD version of SafeDisc® during the Electronic Entertainment Exposition (E3 Expo) at the Los Angeles Convention Center. SafeDisc-DVD protects DVD-ROMs from unauthorized copying.

SafeDisc is the most effective and widely used copy protection available for CD-ROMs, protecting over 70% of the top 20 PC games titles sold to retail in the United States, according to the NPD Techworld data for 2002. Once again demonstrating its industry leadership, Macrovision has extended the patented SafeDisc technologies for the growing DVD-ROM market to provide developers and publishers with a high level of copy protection for this higher capacity format.

The number of DVD-ROM games available is growing rapidly due to the popularity of DVD-enabled consoles such as the Xbox and PlayStation2, and due to the increasing use of DVD media for PC games. While the current version of SafeDisc-DVD is optimized for PC DVD-ROM drives, the same technologies can be used as a second-level copy protection enhancement to the proprietary copy protection and security features that are used by console games manufacturers.

Steve Weinstein, executive vice president of Macrovision’s Entertainment Technologies Group said, “SafeDisc provides the highest level of security against both unauthorized copying and hackers by effectively encrypting each title and incorporating a sophisticated digital signature. The widening availability of games titles on DVD-ROM is expected to provide a boost to the industry and fuel demand amongst consumers. Macrovision is pleased to extend our de facto industry standard software copy protection solution from CD-ROMs to the DVD-ROM format.”
