Blu-ray Managed copy Buzz this

Posted by Prasada Martala Dec 7, 2009


Technology makes life easy. It also makes the consumer in you feel bad with it's advancements. Case in point - Blu-ray Managed copy. In an effort to discourage people from obtaining illegal copies of movies, AACS LA's managed copy for Blu-ray discs lets the Blu-ray disc owners make a copy of the movie. Once this feature is fully implemented by Studios, Hardware manufacturers and Technology companies, you would be able to make a full resolution backup copy of Blu-ray movie to various storage devices. This requires Blu-ray players to be connected to the internet so that your Blu-ray disc can be authenticated by servers managed by Studios or AACS before making a copy.

Even though all Blu-ray discs sold after Dec 4, 2009 are required to have Managed copy feature, none of the current generation blu-ray players and other BD devices do not support this feature. This means the expensive Blu-ray player you bought this holiday season would become obsolete when Hardware manufacturers start selling Managed copy compatible players early 2010. Additionally, Studios can charge you for this managed copy, which makes this feature not so popular with consumers.
