Professor Edward Felten of Princeton’s Computer Science Department must be breathing a sigh of relief round about now. He and his team have been under considerable music industry pressure to refrain from revealing the results of their research last year in which they appear to have cracked the majority of the industry’s SDMI (Secure Digital Music Initiative) audio copy-protection and watermarking schemes, including, apparently, the Verance scheme that is already being put into use for DVD-Audio and SDMI Phase I products. Felten and his team have finally given in and withdrawn their paper.

In an attempt to bring their 5.1 CD and DVD-audio titles to the masses, DTS Entertainment will be going on a nationwide tour to allow people to audition these titles. A specially equipped bus with a 5.1-channel surround sound audio system provided by Pioneer and JBL will stop at hundreds if not thousands of music retail stores, to demonstrate the DTS sonic experience that 5.1 Digital Surround provides to music enthusiasts.

Salon Technology reports that all 3 of the Secure Digital Music Initiative's Watermarks have been broken by hackers. SDMI recently offered a $10,000 bounty to anyone who could break one of their 3 watermarking codes. SMDI adamntly denies the claims that the codes have been successfully hacked and notes even if they had been broken it was a planned scenario, thus the $10,000 bounty.

Bob Stuart, co-founder of Meridian and developer of Meridian Lossless Packing which makes high resolution 5.1, 70 minute albums fit on DVD-Audio discs, commented in an interview at last week's CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis that the DVD Watermarking issue isn't as bad, sonically, as everyone is making it out to be. Stuart acknowledges that the watermarking is the last hurdle to the exciting new technology, however he noted that the watermarking is somewhat misunderstood. According to Stuart, watermarking can be intermittently placed in a music playback source specifically at more dynamic sections where the ill effects of the watermarking are less obvious. Watermarking can also be placed in the silence between tracks.

To date, a major challenge for the Sony/Philips Direct Stream Digital (DSD) one-bit recording system at the heart of Super Audio CD (SACD) concerns the way it has carried out the digital signal processing (DSP) operations that is required for most modern digital recording and mixing, especially multi-track. Until now, this has meant converting the one-bit DSD data stream into something very much akin to the Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) technology it seeks to replace. DSP techniques rely on performing operations on digital words, and if your audio is a single-bit DSD data stream, it won't work.
