As new technologies emerge, it has become more difficult
for copyright holders to control the distribution of digital content.
Midbar's Cactus Data Shield is a comprehensive copy control solution for
optical media such as audio CDs, providing for the first time the technological
infrastructure to secure and control the mass distribution of copyright
material. Midbar is also developing Internet and hardware based copy control
The Cactus Data Shield proprietary technology was developed in-house. The engine behind the protection is the Cactus Data Shield processor, which serves as a platform for encoding original content through robust, multi-layer protection schemes. Easily integrated into the manufacturing process of optical media, the Cactus Data Shield remains fully transparent to both the content provider and the consumer.
Midbar is currently developing Internet and hardware based copy control solutions as well.
