10.02.2007 - Pioneer and Sonic Initiate Joint Licensing Program for CSS Recording

View SonicSolutions related news. Tokyo, Japan, and Novato, California (October 2, 2007) — Pioneer Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of consumer and business-use electronics products, and Sonic Solutions®, the leader in digital media software, have begun a worldwide joint licensing program of patents and other related IP for the encryption and burning of video content to recordable DVD media for playback on DVD players. To respond to consumer and industry interest in “electronic sell-through” of video content and to facilitate the adoption of secure download and burn applications in accordance with the approved industry specifications for recording downloads set by the DVD Forum and the DVD Copy Control Association, Pioneer and Sonic have established a royalty-bearing licensing program that will be administered by Sonic under the Qflix™ name. The program will broadly license the companies’ combined intellectual property that allows DVD recording technologies to use CSS (Content Scramble System), which is the same content protection found on commercially released DVD movies.
