Initial engineering assessments and evaluations are producing results that indicate the HD-VMD formats and the Optikey® submicron structures are highly compatible and a fully integrated system architecture will meet all established design goals.
The advantages of the Optikey® technology are:
* Optikey® is an Analog submicron three dimensional Optical Structure, it can't be Forged.
* Authentication can be accomplished with or without a connection to a central data-base.
* Optikey® is Non-Obsolescent, improvements in computer processing have no effect.
The Optikey®/HD-VMD system architecture will prevent the unauthorized reproduction of protected content on HD-VMD discs or any system that has our proprietary technology. Optikey® doesn't rely on digital encryption, however, it has been proven that when added to encryption systems as a pass/fail portal, it provides an unbreakable layer of protection for the digital domain. The submicron analog Optikey® structures provide precise threshold measurements to be matched with either a reference structure or discrete optical signatures. The Optikey®/HD-VMD system will be compatible with existing legacy formats.
So let me see... we have a physical "key" and database authentication? I think people are going to have a hard time breakign this one. Then again, I said that about AACS.
