Blu-ray & HD DVD: New Copy Protection Technology Being Added

Audio watermarking is now available, via Verance Corp., for licensing by Blu-ray and HD DVD studios to protect discs from being copied illegally. The technology works by embedding an inaudible audio stream within a film's soundtrack, which will then be checked by the player to see if the stream being played is legal. If that stream is missing, or incorrect, the file will not be played.

The story is too old to be commented.
