Cinavia protection

November 29th, 2011 by Fengtao 11,208,991 views

What is Cinavia?

Cinavia is a protection for movies in theaters and on DVD, Blu-ray & UHD discs. It consists of a multi-level watermark that is embedded in the audio track and, while being theoretically transparent (not-audible) for the listener, it is supposed to resist various transformations of the audio stream like re-compression, analog playback & record, re-sampling, limited pitch shift, etc. The base levels are analog, but on the top level there’s the watermark payload that contains some restrictions regarding the playback environment.

The protection has two elements (one cannot work without the other):

  • (A) The watermark embedded in audio-video content.
  • (B) Cinavia enabled player, that will refuse to play the content if it does not match the restrictions.

Examples:

  • A movie copy made with a camcorder in a theater that contains Cinavia watermark will stop playing within about 1 minute on a Playstation 3, for instance, and display aMessage 1.
  • An unprotected (no AACS) Blu-ray backup of “Dracula Untold” (US/Canada release) will mute the audio after about 20 minutes withMessage 3 being shown.

Our Solution

DVDFab is proud to presentDVD, Blu-ray & UHD Cinavia Removal, the first High Quality solution for removing the Cinavia watermark from audio tracks of a disc, thus removing the protection altoghether (see above element (A) of the protection). ForUHD Cinavia Removal you will need DVDFab x64 version!
It works by repairing the audio track, to take it back to original Master quality before the watermark was added to it. For this, a fix pack is downloaded from our server. The operation is automatic, the user only needs to specify that Cinavia should be removed, please refer tothis page for details of operation. Using a broadband Internet connection, there should be no added time to normal backup time, the disc reading speed still being the most important factor.
Because of the lossless operation, the restore can be perfect, 100% match of the original audio data, therefore making sure that there can be no watermark traces left in, that an updated detector can hang on – it’s future proof.
Another thing to consider is that the available track on the protected disc is nottrully lossless. Indeed, the watermark inclusion was subtle, not noticeable for most, but the advertised quality – original HD master – is not there. Technicaly, the sound was distorted and in a direct comparison audio listening session one can distictly hear the watermark-related alteration. In a future release, we will provide a function to help the user compare original and watermarked audio side by side and hear the difference. For now,here’s a sample file for you to download. Please listen to it using a pair of headphones in order to hear the watermark-asociated distorsion more clearly (Left ear is the watermark mix, right ear is the clean mix).

Features

  • Perfect restore to original audio track
  • True lossless quality (for UHD & Blu-ray)
  • Best quality, high bitrate (for DVD)
  • Future proof
  • Seamless automatic operation
  • Compatibility with all Players implied
  • Rich and up-to-date info on Cinavia

Limitations

    Please note that there are some limitations in the current release:

  • Lossy tracks on Blu-rays are supported, but only for some discs, as they need extra testing to ensure removal. More and more discs will have them added.
  • Rips made with audio content recorded in theaters are not supported and it’s likely they’ll never be, as we created this solution to assist users that own original discs and are entitled to create backups and rips for their legal needs.
We consider that it is useful for users to know about the Blu-ray, DVD and UHD discs that contain Cinavia protection and about the players that have detectors for it.
Also, DVDFab x64 and DVDFab Passkey provide information about original discs that have the watermark. Below is a list of discs that have it on one or more tracks.
Movies that are supported by the new DVDFab x64 DVD, Blu-ray & UHD Cinavia Removal solution are highlighted in green and the list will continue to grow. Please, add a bookmark and visit this page to learn of any updates.

4K is short for “Mastered in 4K” Blu-ray
UHD is short for “UltraHD” Blu-ray. NOTE: This mark does not indicate any support for UHD discs! It only shows what movies have been released on UHD Blu-ray as well.
Movies in gray are being prepared for releasing. When they’re available, they’ll appear in green as well.

So far, only some studios are releasing movies with Cinavia protection. Most of them are from Sony Pictures, but recently also Universal Studios and Lionsgate are pushing titles with it. Warner Bros. did five in the past, while 20th Century Fox and Disney had one movie test.

We consider that it is useful for users to know about the Blu-ray, DVD and UHD discs that contain Cinavia protection and about the players that have detectors for it.
Also, DVDFab and DVDFab Passkey provide information about original discs that have the watermark. Below is a list of discs that have it on one or more tracks.
Movies that are supported by the new DVDFab DVD, Blu-ray & UHD Cinavia Removal solution are highlighted in green and the list will continue to grow. Please, add a bookmark and visit this page to learn of any updates.

So far, only some studios are releasing movies with Cinavia protection on DVD. Most of them are from Universal Studios, but also Lionsgate is pushing titles with it. Sony Pictures and Warner Bros. did some in the past, while 20th Century Fox and Disney had one movie test.

We consider that it is useful for users to know about the Blu-ray, DVD and UHD discs that contain Cinavia protection and about the players that have detectors for it.
Also, DVDFab and DVDFab Passkey provide information about original discs that have the watermark. Here is a list of players that are Cinavia-aware either through a firmware update or from release date.
By using DVDFab DVD, Blu-ray & UHD Cinavia Removal new feature you are able to remove the watermark from theinfected discs, so that you can play a backup copy or a rip on any Player, including those in the list below.
This list is not maintained anymore, all players released after 2012 have Cinavia detector.

Twenty-fifth consumer electronics product developer licensed Cinavia as of 2010.
The bad news is that Cinavia technology from Verance Corporation became mandatory for all Blu-ray Disc players as of February 1, 2012, so any new Blu-ray player needs to have the detector nowadays.

There have been identified a couple of workarounds (listed in the order of usability):

1. Use the audio track from the DVD release of the same movie, particularily handy if it was a Blu&DVD Combo release.

Pros:

  • Good quality (DVD audio track is probably an AC3, cannot compare to the lossless of a BD but still good, 5.1 channels)
  • Works on any Cinavia-enabled player, because the audio has no watermark (future proof).
  • So far, there are rather few movies with Cinavia on dvd; see the above table
  • Some Blu-ray releases are combo BD/DVD

Cons:

  • Needs the DVD version as well (may be hard to source a ‘clean’, matching DVD).
  • Needs remuxing skills.
  • The DVD version may be a different mix, so the whole track may not be 100% in sync with Blu-ray release.
  • Some movies, such as Takers, has Cinavia watermark on both Blu-ray and DVD, making this workaround not applicable.

2. Embed DTS core in a PCM track, like in the DTS CDs. There is a special way in which DTS compressed can be stored in a WAV file, for example, and eventualy written on a CD-audio. A player such as VLC will see there is a DTS track inside and decode it correctly; others may not know that and will produce a hissing noise (static). So appart from embedding DTS sound in a PCM track, one absolutely needs an external AV-receiver to decode it.

Pros:

  • Very good quality, the bitrate of the DTS track is higher than of a AC3 one, from a DVD.
  • Not detectable by the Cinavia enabled player if it is set to pass-through the audio to an external decoder. This way the information about the source of content is lost and the external decoder has no reason not to decode the audio.

Cons:

  • Well, there could be a reason: if it does not know how to extract DTS from PCM. We tried this a while ago, but could not find an AV-receiver to cope with the DTS-in-PCM track, so we only mentioned it now to present you all the posibilities, even theoretical ones. This is more like: “what a nice idea, too bad I cannot use it”

3. Apparently there is another trick to be tried on a PS3 (only) and it needs you to select optical cable as output in Sound settings and checking all the sound formats (weird and dangerous! see the warning PS3 will display there), then also select the multiple output option. Seethis andthis.
Cons:

  • We could not manage to replicate it on our PS3.
  • Seems more like a bug in the Cinavia detector of PS3 and it has been reported that it has been patched in recent firmwares.

UPDATE: The following text has been edited to include the information about latest PS3 firmware.
The following applies to fw1.60 up to fw4.00 only, so if you want to benefit from this solution do not update your console!

The first solution to disable Cinavia came from DVDFab. It is a way of creating backups so they don’t trigger Cinavia. This solution is useful for PS3 users who are the most affected by Cinavia so far. What makes it a great solution is that the disc is much like the original (with menus), a protected backup so the Cinavia-enabled player will see it as trusted source and will play it back just like the original. People have made protected (isos) backups in the past, but those had the disadvantage that they only worked with the programs that made them; well, these protected backups are supposed to work on standalone players too.

Technical details: the discs created are called BDMV-REC as they are AACS protected recordable BDMV. Another solution would be AACS protected BDAV, like the ones produced by Japanese BD recorders.

Requirements:

  • a Playstation 3 console with a firmware version smaller or equal to 4.00!
  • original Blu-ray disc with Cinavia watermark. DVDFab and DVDFab Passkey will tell if you have such a disc
  • a BD-RE (recommended for initial tests) or BD-R disc to store the protected backup
  • a BD writer
  • DVDFab and updated writing software. DVDFab checks for it anyway

Pros:

  • It is a solution to disable Cinavia, exactly as it is disabled for the original disc, due to (AACS) protection layer being active.
  • DVDFab does all the tricks involved to create such a protected backup at a push of a button.
  • The disc can preserve all the original features like menus, interactivity, BD-Live.
  • Broad firmware support: PS3 users with firmware from 1.60 and up to 4.00 can use BDMV-REC discs.
  • At any time, DVDFab or DVDFab Passkey can be used to remove the protection, if you need to.
  • This is kind of an official solution, because it involves support from AACS standards, the same standards that force adoption of Cinavia 😉

Cons:

  • Due to the change in AACS LA licensing, starting with firmware 4.10, Playstation 3 have degraded the status of Protected Backups (BDMV-REC) to regular copies without the power to disable Cinavia. They are no more in the Trusted Source list.
  • BDMV-REC is not implemented by all players. BD Players implemented Blu-ray standards as they saw fit to market their products. Not all of them have implemented the standard that BDMV-REC is based on, AACS Recordable BDMV, fully. PS3, being one of the best players, did.
  • If not on PS3, we encourage users to check the playback support for “AACS protected recordable BDMV” either with BD Player support or with a BD-RE.
  • PC players support protected BDAV, but not BDMV-REC.
  • Cinavia is not removed, just disabled. Well, whatever works 🙂 We tried to provide you with a solution asap and this was the quickest.

We were planning to add support for the above-mentioned protected BDAV which would give a much broader adoption among BD Players, without having all the features: no menu, no interactivity, no BD-live, simply a Movie-only format. But since all AACS-protected Recordables have been degraded it does not make much sense now.
