What is Cinavia Protection?

Cinavia Protection is an analog watermarking and steganography system developed by Verance, which is designed to stay within the audio signal and to survive all common forms of audio transfer to limit unauthorized uses of some movies and other filmed entertainment in Blu-ray Disc players. Blu-ray discs cannot easily get rid of this Cinavia protection. When playing media with the watermark embedded in the audio track on a system with Cinavia detection, your computer firmware will detect the watermark and check whether the device it is running on is authorized for that watermark.

If not authorized, you will get messages indicating that the media is not authorized to play on the device. There are mainly 4 basic kinds of message codes, including playback stopped, copying stopped, audio muted and copying stopped. For more information, you can refer to http://www.cinavia.com/languages/english/pages/messages.html.

How does Cinavia work?

Movies protected by Cinavia carry an inaudible watermark embedded by the copyright owners in the movie’s audio tracks, this watermark indicates where and how the movie is allowed to be used. The audio watermark is designed to stay in the audio tracks wherever they are played back, including after they have been copied, captured by a camcorder, or converted to a different format.

Whenever the use of content is protected by Cinavia, playback or copying of unauthorized copies may be stopped or audio may be muted, depending on which Cinavia code is found and what operation is being performed. Some movies may play the first 20 minutes but will then be muted and an explanatory message will display on the TV screen the Blu-ray player is connected to.
