Verbatim will offer premium Qflix DVD media Verbatim has announced today a complete line of Qflix DVD media. Qflix technology, which is licensed by Sonic Solutions, enables users to download and burn DVD movies, complete with the Content Scrambling System (CSS) copy protection that is present on all retail movie DVDs. Verbatim's new product line will include both Qflix consumer media and printable Qflix Pro media for enterprise use.
"Verbatim views Qflix technology as an entertainment breakthrough," said Tim Clatterbuck, Verbatim Optical Storage Manager. "High-quality media that provides broad compatibility will be key to the rapid adoption rate of this technology, and that's where Verbatim media excels. In addition, through our collaboration with Sonic and the leading burner/recorder manufacturers, our Qflix customers can be confident that they also have the best compatibility between Qflix hardware and our media."

The applications for Verbatim's new Qflix media span every consumer, retail and commercial download and burn application, including DVD burning on home PCs, in-store kiosk burning, and manufacturing on demand (MOD) services. "We are delighted to have Verbatim as an official manufacturer and distributor of Qflix DVDs," said Jim Taylor, senior vice president and general manager of Sonic Solutions' Advanced Technology Group. "Verbatim's strong brand and reputation will help add momentum to the launch of new, efficient models for the distribution of high-quality entertainment."

Verbatim Qflix media will be released to coincide with the availability of Qflix drives and video download services in Q1 2008.

using CSS today is totally pointless.
CSS only dvd's can be copied using DVD Shrink on a computer.
