AACS LA, LLC c/o AACS Administration 3855 SW 153rd Drive Beaverton, Oregon 97003 Tel: 503-619-0863 Fax: 503-644-6708 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org AACS LA`s Don Leake (Co-Manager of AACS LA, LLC and Program Director, Copy Protection Business Development for IBM, to verify the latest version of the AACS Adopter Agreement) will make a presentation explaining this new technology, the rules of its use and the terms of new licensing agreements for the new technology. The conclusion of the license agreement for the DRM Advanced Access content system for Blu-ray discs comes with an analog sunset and also means that the long-promised “Managed Copy” feature (hopefully) will come soon… The AACS LA consortium was established in 2004.  With DeCSS after the fact, readers of IEEE Spectrum magazine chose AACS as one of the technologies most likely to fail in the January 2005 issue.  The final AACS standard was delayed and then delayed again when a major member of the Blu-ray group raised concerns.  An intermediate standard was issued at Toshiba`s request, which did not contain certain features such as managed copies.  As of October 15, 2007, the final AACS standard had not yet been published.  On June 5, 2009, the licensing agreements for AACS were concluded, which were updated to make Cinavia detection a requirement on commercial Blu-ray drives.  This function was not included in the intermediate standard, so the first devices on the market did not have that capability.  This was expected to be part of the final specification of the AACS.  In June 2009, the final AACS agreements were ratified and published online, containing information on aspects of the AACS manae copy. AACS-compatible readers must follow exit guidelines via analog connections.
This is defined by an Image Constraint Token (ICT) name that limits the resolution for analog outputs to 960×540. The full 1920×1080 resolution is limited to HDMI or DVI outputs that support HDCP. The decision to define the “down-convert” option is left to the content provider. Warner Pictures is an ICT advocate, and Paramount and Universal are also expected to implement top-down conversion.  AACS guidelines require that any title implementing ICT be clearly stated on the packaging.
