  • Disney to use Cinea encryption for DVD screeners

    Oct. 24, 2005
    As awards season gets under way, Walt Disney Studios has become the first studio to agree to use Cinea watermarking technology for its 2005 DVD awards screeners. They will play only on the Cinea S-View DVD players, which were shipped free of charge last year to members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and other awards groups. "Chicken Little," "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch & the Wardrobe," "Shopgirl," "Howl's Moving Castle" and "Casanova" are among the Disney awards hopefuls that will be distributed on Cinea-encrypted DVDs to select groups for awards consideration. The discs will land in voter mailboxes as early as Thanksgiving, Disney executives said. To date, no other studio has committed to using the Cinea technology during the upcoming awards season. Sony Pictures, Paramount Pictures and Universal Pictures don't plan to take the Cinea route. A spokesperson for Warner Bros. Pictures said that it has no plans to use Cinea at the moment.

          This is not a shocker, really...

          One of these days, I can imagine a time when we will have to "activate" a media file in order to view it's content...

          Each "activation" will come with a price, fer shure...

            For each time they do this, I buy less and less movies, etc. I start to read more and more books....

              Heh - Time until Cinea is cracked: 5...4...3...2...

              Break out the black markers! Or maybe this time it's a blue one!

              Someone will crack this. Every other 'foolproof' protection scheme has been cracked. Just a matter of time.

                I know- instead of the media companies focusing on stealing a few more bucks out of our pockets, they should instead focus on increasing quality and frequency of releases...

                They keep wasting their millions to feel as if they are elite in some way, people don't like over-bearing restrictions on stuff they purchase.

                Granted, there will always be thieves, but why treat us all as criminals? Just make the punishment stiffer for those who do rip-em-off and sell them to the public.

                    Hahaha...reading books, no, that's a good thing! The bad thing is the over-complication of trying to hide, charge and re-charge for media content.

                      I was thinking more along the lines of anti-piracy measures leading to over capitalization on media content... Which I think is a big problem...
