Macgo Mac Blu-ray Player provides the best Cinavia solution

What is Cinavia?

Cinavia is an analog watermarking and steganography system, developed by Verance, firstly named Verance Copy Management System for Audiovisual Content (VCMS/AV). Even recoded or recorded, it still cannot get rid of Cinavia protection, which can still be identified through professional devices.

Cinavia technology is used in Blu-ray players to detect and limit copies of movies, television shows, and other professionally produced videos that have been made without the permission of the copyright owner.

How does it work?

The protection has two elements which interacted with each other. One is the watermark embedded in audio-video content, the other is the Cinavia enabled player that will detect the watermark. When media with the watermark embedded in the audio track is played on a system with Cinavia detection, its firmware will detect the watermark and check whether the device it is running on is authorized for that watermark or not. If the device is not authorized, it will present a message indicating that the media is not authorized to play on the device, therefore, users should visit the Cinavia web page for more information. Depending on the device and firmware, the audio may be muted, or playback may stop entirely, as long as the message is triggered.
