Vinpower Digital announced today that all new ACARD controller production, beginning in March 2019, will include the ability to implement DVD copy protection, using Vinpower’s proprietary CopyLock application. The CopyLock technology allows users the ability to embed copy protection into their original master discs. The ACARD controller can enable the CopyLock embedded master disc to transfer that protection, so that every copy will be produced with copy protection to help prevent the unauthorized reproduction of proprietary video content.
CopyLock is a patented technology, developed by Vinpower, Inc., that allows a device to embed a DVD video master disc with the ability to protect against both reproduction and ripping of the protected content during the initial duplication process. The CopyLock technology can be utilized via a license dongle or directly through the duplicator without requiring a license if utilized with specific authorized Optodisc manufactured media.Add a comment
