Settec's Alpha-DVD technology is committed to discourage illegal copying activities. Alpha-DVD protects the DVD contents by using multi-layered encryption technology. A number of available DVD copying software has failed to copy the DVDs with Settec' copy protection. The result is: copying process stops or copied content is not viewable.
Alpha-DVD technology reallocates and inserts Alpha-DVD blocks into original movie contents. Such Alpha-DVD blocks provide multi-level protection against ripping activities by commonly used ripping software. Alpha-DVD technology is applied to DVD so that it is completely transparent to legal users while allowing them full compatibility as normal unprotected DVDs. However, when ripping is attempted, errors will occur notifying either ripping is not possible or the ripping tools recognize no disc.
Alpha-DVD provides easy and quick implementation. Unlike previously available DVD copy protection system, no additional process is required for Alpha-DVD during authoring stages. Alpha-DVD application takes place immediately after DVD authoring process. Alpha-DISC Authorized Mastering & Replication companies or Alpha-DISC Resellers in your area applies Alpha-DVD technology to make a protected DVD master. This protected DVD master is delivered for mass replication. For customer preference, Alpha-DVD application to DLT master is also supported.
Alpha-DVD applied DVD can be manufactured at Disc Partner.
