Sonic Qflix DVD Burning

Sonic today finalized its long-anticipated legal download-to-DVD recording system. Titled Qflix, the technology lets those buying videos from strictly digital outlets, including online download stores, burn the movies directly to discs that work properly in standard DVD players but still prevent easy copying. Customers could theoretically produce as many copies of a movie or TV show as their license allows while the discs themselves cannot be mass-duplicated, Sonic claims. Newly revealed is the necessity for an end-to-end protection system: the software, computer drives, and discs need to be Qflix-certified to prevent simpler workarounds. Hardware and software that supports the technology will be announced soon.
