Techopedia explains Video Content Protection System (VCPS)

Because digital data are very easy to manipulate, content owners want more protection for their work. This has led to the creation of VCPS. VCPS is an innovative technology for encrypting video recordings on DVD+R and DVD+RW discs. The content under this system is encrypted using three different keys. The first key is stored on the media disc, the second key is stored in the player software and the third key is stored in the hardware that will decrypt and play the media.
