Hidden Images On Vista DVD - Update
Remember those hidding images on the Windows Vista DVDs we talked about just the other day? If not, you can check them out right here. Well, it turns out the images are a mix of images from the public domain and pictures of the team that worked on the Windows Vista hologram. Nick White from the official Windows Vista Blog talks about the images and explains why they're on the discs in the first place...
"The real story is interesting, but conspiracy theorists will be disappointed to learn that it is not the result of a deliberate attempt to deceive. The photo displays members of the team who worked on the Windows Vista DVD hologram design. Microsoft’s Anti-Piracy Team designed a counterfeit-resistant digital "watermark" for the non-encoded surface of Windows Vista DVDs. The photo in question is only one of multiple images contained in the hologram design, all of whose inclusion serves to make it more difficult to replicate a Windows Vista DVD. The other images are of old master works of art that are in the public domain. These images are part of numerous other security measures that have been designed into our media, packaging and certificates of authenticity. Hence, even though this image has been reproduced on the Web, there are many other features providing further security."
Is anyone surprised? Didn't think so.
