The only options available would be security measures that can be added to CD-ROM projects in the programming. These include PDF Security Measures, Serial Numbers for Software etc.
DVD5 / DVD9 (Video Only)
CSS Copyright Encryption can be added to your DVD Video Project.
** NOTE: This can only done at the Authoring stage of production , not after the DVD Master has been created. So its important to ensure your DVD Authoring provider know if you require CSS Copyright Encryption.
As we provide DVD Authoring services we can add this to your DVD Video Project at the authoring stage and this would need to be quoted as a separate service.
CSS Encrypted Masters can only be supplied as DDP IMAGE FILES - on a USB Flash Drive.
