Welcome to the DVD CCA Website

The DVD Copy Control Association (DVD CCA) is a not-for-profit corporation that issues licenses and maintains specifications for the Content Scramble System (CSS). CSS is made available through the cooperative efforts of three industries (consumer electronics, information technology and motion picture). CSS responded to the need to protect copyrighted material from theft with a technology that could be effectively and invisibly deployed in devices like DVD players and personal computers.


History

The creation of DVD CCA and CSS in the late 1990's was the final critical step that opened the door to high quality DVD movies and other entertainment being available for consumer enjoyment in the home, car and an ever-growing number of places.

Did You Know

CSS, the content protection technology used on many DVD titles, does not in any way interfere with a computer's operation. CSS is designed to be completely transparent and non-invasive during normal playback, and does not install any software or file of any kind when played on computers or any other playback device

Future

CSS Managed Recording is an exciting new function enabling commercial audiovisual content to be recorded on special recordable DVD media using CSS. Consumer electronic sell-through applications, by which consumers may download content and record onto the new recordable media through an authorized online digital distribution system, are likely to follow.
