Macrovision Corporation today announced the launch of SafeDisc® version 3.1, designed to upgrade
its CD/DVD-ROM copy-protection against hacking and unauthorized copying of protected titles.
SafeDisc V3.1 builds upon the security wrapper that PC games publishers have used to protect over
200 million CDs worldwide, and provides effective and time-efficient security tools for PC games
Key features include:
• Unique instance-based security that creates individual new security system for each title, and
an improved code masking technology which can be used to thwart hackers from reverse-engineering
Macrovision copy protection out of a protected application.
• Robust SafeDisc security API (Application Programming Interface) with “Intelligent Protected
Functions (PFNs)” and improved interface, allowing faster and more effective implementation.
• Expanded Professional Services with on-site Macrovision development engineer working along side
your developers to produce world-class highly secure implementation of SafeDisc protection for
each title. This also includes SafeDisc API training, software installation pack and additional
code tools and methodologies to increase the level of protection that developers can apply to
• New unique signature for each title to foil copying to even the most advanced optical disc
Steve Weinstein, executive vice president of Macrovision, commented: “Our ongoing investment in
research and development provides our SafeDisc customers with a constantly evolving product for
more effective protection in a fast moving and ever changing market environment.”
SafeDisc V3.1 will be available in September, 2003 to meet publishers’ and developers’ demand for
