Exciting news that DVDFab (Beta) has the power to tackle the playback problem of Cinavia protected Blu-ray on PS3. This is definitely a great breakthrough as DVDFab is the world first universal solution to play backup of Cinavia protected Blu-ray disc on PS3. Continue for the details.

What is Cinavia technology and how does Cinavia work? Cinavia technology is used in BD players to identify and limit the use of copies of movies, television shows, and other professionally produced videos that have been made without the permission of the copyright owner. It requires two parts to work: a proprietary imperceptible audio watermark, and a piece of hardware which is able to detect that watermark. When media with the watermark embedded in the audio track is played back on a system with Cinavia detection, its firmware will detect the watermark and check that the device on which it is being played is authorized for that watermark. If the device is not authorized, a message is displayed stating that the media is not authorized for playback on the device and that users should visit the Cinavia web page for more information. Depending on the device and firmware, once the message is triggered, the audio may be muted, or playback may stop entirely.

Blu-ray/media players that use Cinavia :

* Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) firmware 3.10 or higher

* Pioneer BDP-V6000

DVDFab (Beta) provides the first universal solution for playback of Cinavia protected Blu-ray on PS3:

Among the Cinavia enabled BD players, no doubt PS3 is the most popular one. DVDFab takes this into consideration and worked hard for a long time to try to make out a solution for it at first and serve all the worldwide customers as soon as possible. We are happy to inform you that DVDFab (Beta) now can copy any Blu-ray disc with Cinavia watermark, and create a protected disc (BDMV-REC) which can be played on PS3 with Blu-ray Copy. Why BDMV-REC? Since it is very much the same as the original BDMV-ROM (the original disc), with menus, interactivity, BD-Live, etc. So from now on, with DVDFab Blu-ray Copy (Beta), you can enjoy backup disc of any Cinavia protected Blu-ray movies on your PS3.

Keep in mind that in order to make it a success, 2 working conditions are required: 1. Only use "Full Disc" mode; 2. Choose output type as BD 50. Although this solution has been through numerous and careful tests by our professional test team, we still recommend all dear customers to write Cinavia protected BD to BD-RE first, then write to BD-R after it made a success just in case.

DVDFab is working on other Cinavia solutions as well. No time later, a solution which supports protected BDAV and is more compatible with most BD players will come out for use.
