Hollywood has unveiled a powerful new technology which it hopes will help kill the pirating of movies. The system relies on sound – not vision – and was unveiled at a conference held by the international DVD Forum in Paris, France last week.

This is an interesting system.

    I find it rather odd that they’re so concerned about camcorder rips on a high def format. Who the heck would want to watch those crappy things? Aren’t most of them acquired over a P2P network and watched on a PC using some super-compressed format?

    Who would try to copy a high def disc by pointing a camcorder at their own TV screen? That’s retarded. I think they’re taking the “analog loophole” worry a little too far.
