Generate revenue by protecting your entertainment assets from piracy in the pre-release, theatrical, and home video windows.
Cinavia has been implemented by the major Hollywood studios, all Blu-ray Disc device manufacturers, and is an industry requirement for UHD/4K content.
Deployed by over 100 leading entertainment and technology companies, in over 300 million consumer devices worldwide, and over 50 million movies and television programs, half of the output from Hollywood is protected by Cinavia.
Cinavia generates over 10% in additional sales through proactive protection against key motion picture and home video piracy threats. Generating revenue while protecting content requires a universally compatible solution across entertainment, consumer electronics, and computer industries.
Effective Countermeasure to Piracy
Only 1 in 10 movies recuperate their investment in theatrical release due to the impact of piracy on ticket sales, DVD rentals, electronic sell-through, and VOD. This is why content creators turn to Cinavia for a cross-platform countermeasure that is easy to integrate, cost effective, and has no impact on viewer experiences.
