Sony develops Postscribed ID technology for DVD

September 24th, 2007 · No Comments

Sony has developed a version of its Postscribed ID technology for DVD. First seen on CD-ROM, the technology allows for the individual serialization of DVD-Video and DVD-ROM discs during the manufacturing process. Postscribed ID technology was first developed in 2002.
Sony says that “following the success of the technology for CD-ROMs, there has been significant demand for equivalent technology to be developed for DVD media, with its ability to carry high-quality video content.”
Existing hardware can be used to read Postscribed ID discs; there is no need for firmware updates or any other software installation. Sony says that the technology “does not infringe the powerful error correction features present in the DVD format.” Discs manufactured for Postscribed ID utilise a new reflective layer material which allows the area between pits on the disc surface to carry ID data.
The ability to authorize every single legitimate copy of a DVD disc could remove the need for software keys on computer applications and prevent the playback of non-authorized, or copied discs, in standard DVD players.
