Pleasanton, CA / Basking Ridge, NJ (PRWEB) May 25, 2005
Eclipse announced today that they have certified the HexaLock Virtual Digital Hologram (VDH) CD copy protection plug-in for use within their EclipseSuite Software and ImageEncoder Formatter.
ÂWe have been working with HexaLock for some time,Â said Bob Edmonds, Eclipse VP of Sales and Marketing. ÂWe have provided support for the HexaLock Plug-in within our CD mastering Product Suite for over two years. We have now fully certified HexaLockÂs upgraded Virtual Digital Hologram copy protection technology for use with Eclipse Suite Version 4.0, and the Eclipse Image Encoder. This will give our replicator customers a new solution to address publisher concerns regarding piracy and unauthorized content copying.Â
ÂThe integration of our current CD copy protection solutions within the EclipseSuite Software Module has gone very well. The products fit seamlessly and work automatically, within current CD manufacturing operations,Â said John Stevens, HexaLock VP, Business Development. ÂOur new solutions also incorporate HexaLock technology within the Eclipse Image Encoder. HexaLockÂs 4th generation copy protection introduces a new security element called Virtual Digital Hologram (VDH), which is being applied to both CD-ROMs and CD-RX, v. 4.0 discs. VDH technology has been in use for the last year exclusively within the military and government sectors. To date, CDÂs containing VDH technology have proven to be 100% resistant to all copying methods known to HexaLock and its customers. This, combined with our new Content Protection Wizard, allowing PDF, HTML, MPEG and MP-3 files to be protected, has greatly enhanced the capabilities of HexaLock technology.Â
The VDH security element is a digital hologram, formed by special bit patterns that provide a ÂHologram EffectÂ to the CD/DVD reading device. When making a copy of an original protected disc the VDH pattern will disappear. Instead, a static bit pattern will appear. The HexaLock software will detect absence the VDH pattern and act accordingly.
