The Macrovision PPV copy protection system is available as a feature in off-the-shelf digital color encoder
integrated circuits (ICs).
The copy protection technology is incorporated into off-the-shelf NTSC or PAL digital-to-analog color encoder
integrated circuits, one of which is required in each Macrovision-enabled set-top decoder.
Companies who are building delivery systems and hardware to support video-on-demand services, DBS pay-per-view systems, CD-I and CD-ROM full motion video and other multi-media machine will now be able to offer copy protection solutions to copyright holders -- courtesy of the Macrovision/Raytheon building block approach to digital color encoders
