RealDVD brings secure way of format-shift for DVD movies
Digital entertainment services company RealNetworks has unveiled RealDVD, saying it is the first mainstream PC application allowing consumers to easily save their DVDs to their hard drive.

RealDVD makes it easy to save DVDs to a PC or portable hard drive and watch them later without the physical discs. Unlike existing consumer applications on the market today, RealDVD is licensed DVD software that saves a secure copy of a DVD to the hard drive without removing or altering the CSS encryption.

"RealDVD gives consumers a great new way to get more out of their DVDs," said Rob Glaser, chairman and CEO of RealNetworks. "RealDVD continues in Real's tradition of consumer innovation over the past 15 years alongside RealAudio, RealJukebox, RealArcade, Rhapsody, and, most recently, RealPlayer 11."

As a side effect, laptop users will appreciate improved battery life as the disc drive is no longer needed for video playback.

RealDVD saves an exact copy of the DVD image to a PC's internal or portable hard drive. Users can simultaneously watch and save a DVD. Those saved DVDs are then encrypted and locked again to make sure they cannot be shared or stolen.

Saving DVDs takes an average of 10-40 minutes, and takes up roughly 4-8 GB of space per disc.

Content saved to portable drives can be played on up to five machines licensed to an individual user.

Browse cover art, genre, title rating and actor information, imported automatically during saving

RealDVD will be available this month.
