SafeDisc HD is a highly secure protection system designed to prevent consumer, institutional, and business copying of mass distributed application software CD-ROMs sold through retail and reseller channels. SafeDisc HD combines anti-copy, encryption and anti-hacking technologies to allow installation and subsequent execution of the application only in the presence of the original disc(s) containing a SafeDisc HD Digital Signature. A key feature of SAFEDISC HD is that it does not require the CD-ROM in the drive every time the application is launched. The publisher can specify the time period for periodic re-authentication of the original CD-ROM. This protects against the end-user from passing the original disc(s) on to unauthorized users.
SafeDisc HD protection can be applied after the product development is complete (supports 32-bit PC applications only). Publishers can have the CD-ROMs mastered at any of the 80+ Macrovision-licensed replication facilities worldwide.." NULL
