According to the US company, the product range "is non-complaint with the provisions and conditions required in the current CSS License Agreement."
CSS (Content Scramble System) is the encryption scheme that protects copyrighted DVDs; the DVD CCA (Copy Control Association) is the organisation that licenses the technology.
In recent months the Motion Picture Association of the USA has won several court cases relating to content copying. AMX said that they are not prepared to spend the time or the money taking on the CCA who they believe is wrong in their claims over DVD copying.
Kaleidescape, who have a storage and software copying offering have chosen to fight the DVD CCA in court.
CEPRO said that when Kaleidescape was sued in 2005, industry watchers wondered why the DVD CCA would go after the little guy rather than AMX, with its deeper pockets. Most believed that Kaleidescape, with its strong media-server brand, would send a stronger message to the industry.
