Macrovision Announces SAFEDISC HD

"..Macrovision Corporation announced product release of its new SafeDisc HD anti-piracy solution for application software CD-ROMs. Software publishers can use SafeDisc HD to provide persistent copy protection and periodic authentication of original CD-ROMs, while not requiring the CD-ROM disk(s) in the drive every time the application is launched. SafeDisc HD provides the means to protect the application's executable program(s), and supports multi-disc programs and hybrid discs. SafeDisc and SafeDisc HD are the only Yellow Book-compliant copy protection products on the market today.

SafeDisc HD is a highly secure protection system designed to prevent consumer, institutional, and business copying of mass distributed application software CD-ROMs sold through retail and reseller channels. SafeDisc HD combines anti-copy, encryption and anti-hacking technologies to allow installation and subsequent execution of the application only in the presence of the original disc(s) containing a SafeDisc HD Digital Signature. A key feature of SAFEDISC HD is that it does not require the CD-ROM in the drive every time the application is launched. The publisher can specify the time period for periodic re-authentication of the original CD-ROM. This protects against the end-user from passing the original disc(s) on to unauthorized users.

SafeDisc HD protection can be applied after the product development is complete (supports 32-bit PC applications only). Publishers can have the CD-ROMs mastered at any of the 80+ Macrovision-licensed replication facilities worldwide.."
