Video copy processor
For obvious reasons, the rights owners of Hollywood 'blockbusters' and other films released on video cassettes are doing everything they can to prevent financial losses due to unauthorised copying of their products. Most of these (huge) companies, including Disney, employ an anti-copy process called Macrovision ".
