Burst Cutting Area
According to the physical DVD specification, a Burst Cutting Area (BCA) is a feature that provides support for a bar code to be written inside of the lead-in area of replicated DVDs. This allows for discs to be given unique codes, which can come in handy as a form of copy protection in circumstances. This feature is rarely used and support for reading BCA is not mandatory.
