VIDEO PROTECT OVERVIEW
Rimage Video Protect
Rimage Video Protect is a software only solution that protects DVD video discs against
Extremely Compatible Playback
Rimage and Intellikey labs continue to test the latest versions of Rimage Video Protect on
the latest players. Our goal is to attain 100% playback on all players.
Our last report from Intellikey indicated that Rimage Video Protect is playable on 100% of
all players tested, including Microsoft® Xbox 360. As new players are released, and new
versions of RVP are developed, we will continue our testing efforts and our goal of 100%
Rimage is using an innovative USB dongle-based pay-per-burn system to provide
maximum flexibility and convenience for any user in any work environment. Any USB stock can be used as a dongle, once the credits have been loaded.
Rimage Video Protect is a feature in Producer Software Suite version 7.5 and later.
Rimage Video Protect is licensed on a per disc basis, consuming one protection credit for
every disc with RVP. RVP is purchased separately from the Rimage publisher.
The copy protection implementation is transparent to playback devices to ensure excellent
unhampered playback quality. RVP is a passive solution, with no software ever installed
when using a PC as a DVD playback device. RVP controls access by common ripping
programs without modifying the original DVD content.
RVP’s copy controls take up a small portion of the DVD storage capacity and are written in
areas of the disc that are not read during playback.
Independent test labs have verified that RVP achieves a very high level of playback
compatibility with DVDR players and does not install software or modify a user’s system.
RVP is available on the following Rimage systems.
• Producer III systems, Rimage 8100N, Rimage 7100N, Rimage 6100N
• Professional series Rimage 5400N
VIDEO PROTECT DONGLE CONCEPT
RVP license credits are implemented on the Rimage system through a security device
called a dongle. The RVP dongle is a USB flash drive that connects to a
Rimage Control Center USB port to authenticate and decrement the RVP credits as
consumed. The credits are registered with the Rimage Software Suite’s Production Server
by attaching the RVP USB flash drive to the Control Center’s USB port.
When the RVP option is selected, a credit is decremented for each disc recorded with
RVP. The status information is obtained through the Rimage System Manager under the
Production Server Information.
As new versions of Rimage Video Protect are released, there is no need to replace RVP
Dongles. The updated RVP software resides on the control center, and RVP Dongles are
generic are not specific to a particular version of RVP.
