CD / DVD Copy Protection

We currently offer copy protection solutions for both replicated and duplicated DVD video. We do not offer copy protection for CD or DVD-ROM (data discs).

If you are looking to secure CD-ROM or DVD-ROM content then we can offer Cryptex discs which encrypt the content and require a password in-order for the content to be viewed. Content cannot be removed from these discs.

CSS (Content Scrambling System) Copy Protection is available for replicated DVD Video. CSS prevents the copying of the content from the disc to hard drive or disc to disc copying.

Your content must be supplied with CSS encryption, this is done at the authoring stage.

Limitations of CSS: It’s only fair to say that CSS protection is not full proof. A quick internet search will reveal a number of software packages which will break CSS encryption.

Duplication Copy Protection

CopyLock protection is available on duplicated DVD video. CopyLock prevents disc to disc copying and also ripping of the content to hard drive.

When supplying your master you can do in the normal way or as an ISO file. The content does not need to be encrypted at the authoring stage.

Cryptex encrypted discs offer an ideal solution for any business or individual who wants an assured way to protect personal or sensitive files on discs.

How it works:

Cryptex CD-R and DVD-R come pre-loaded with a small application. This application encrypts the files when burning them onto the discs and allows you to set a password. The content can only be read from the disc if the correct password is entered. Files that are on the disc do not appear when using windows explorer.

  • Copying software is pre-installed on Cryptex discs
  • Copying Wizard allows you to create encrypted files in 3 easy steps
  • Choose your password and enter when copying the disc
  • Additional files may be appended to an encrypted disc
  • You need to re-enter password to gain access to contents on the disc
  • Verification of encrypted and recorded data
  • No software installation
  • As an optional extra you can securely erase source files from hard drive after backing up to the CD
