Piracy has been a big issue for the music recording industry for the last few years. In an effort to stop illegal copyright infringement the RIAA had been involved in many multi million dollar lawsuits against those participating in illegal piracy, such as CD replication and CD duplication services.

The (RIAA) Recording Industry Association of America is the trade group that represents the U.S. recording industry. Its mission is to foster a business and legal climate that supports and promotes its members' creative and financial vitality. Its members are the record companies that comprise the most vibrant national music industry in the world. RIAA members create, manufacture and/or distribute approximately 90 percent of all legitimate sound recordings produced and sold in the United States.

In support of this mission, Acutrack and the RIAA work to protect intellectual property rights worldwide and the First Amendment rights of artists; conduct consumer industry and technical research; and monitor and review - - state and federal laws, regulations and policies.

Before you begin the CD replication or DVD duplication process for music, software, videos/film, you must demonstrate that you are the rightful owner of all of the materials. This applies to the work that you have created in addition to sampling, previously recorded recordings, cover songs, soundtracks and software applications.

Acutrack provides state-of-the-art movie studio quality sound for DVD production.

PLEASANTON, Calif. - Acutrack now offers encoding and authoring with superb, crisp, Dolby Digital 5.1-channel surround sound for your DVD titles. You've heard the phrase, "Great audio makes great video." Now, you can add this amazing and explosive effect to your DVD titles just like the major sound studios.
Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound is the technology that major sound and motion picture studios use to incorporate crucial elements in their projects. Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound consists of 6 discrete channels. Left-front, Right-front, Left-Rear, Right-rear and Center are full frequency and LFE (sub-woofer) is a low frequency channel.

Simply put, Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound will give your DVD-video titles the same depth, richness and quality that you expect from a movie theater. From our experience, adding Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound is the single most enhancing feature for any DVD project.

Acutrack, Inc. has provided DVD authoring and replication services for over three years and has been successful with clients who have chosen to use 5.1 Surround Sound as their audio of choice.
Although standard 2-channel Dolby Digital stereo sound is the most common choice for audio, we encourage you to give Dolby Digital 5.1 a thought for your next DVD-audio project as we foresee this as the next standard where impact is crucial.

PLEASANTON, Calif. - Acutrack, Inc is proud to announce the acquisition of Advent Media, Inc., based in San Ramon, California. Advent Media is a leader in CD mastering and DVD duplication equipment sales in addition to CD and DVD duplication, printing and fulfillment services. Advent Media was launched in 1996 providing its services to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Acutrack, Inc., located in Pleasanton, CA was founded in 1992 to meet the needs of the entertainment, software and corporate business communities. Acutrack is a full service CD and DVD Production Source.
According to Acutrack's president, Raj Barman, "This is a timely and positive acquisition allowing Acutrack to further expand its portfolio of products and services.

The acquisition of Advent Media will enable us to jump-start this segment of our business with their solid customer base. This acquisition will also insure that Acutrack remains an industry leader.

How Does DVD Copy Protection Work?
Rights owners seeking to copy protect their programs would instruct Acutrack to set certain digital-analog copy protection trigger bits to "on" during the authoring process When the disc is played back in a consumer's home, these trigger bits activate a Macrovision-enabled digital-analog converter chip inside the player. The chip then applies copy protection to the analog output of the DVD player. This allows for transparent viewing of the original program, but causes copies made on most VCRs to be substantially degraded.

For further information regarding Macrovision copy protection contact the Acutrack sales department at 1-888-234-3472 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
