    Millivision Non-Radiating Scanning Systems used to prevent loss of 'Yet-To-Be-Released' game titles

    [​IMG]

    Each year more then $10 billion of company property is stolen by workers at manufacturing facilities, distribution centers and warehouses worldwide.

    We all have seen the 'press coverage' regarding the reason because the early version's of 'MW3' appearing on the 'net after a leak from a disc manufacturer plant, well it seems one company has decided to put it's foot down and has picked Millivision advanced object detection scanning systems to prevent employee theft.

    I doubt all this 'high-tech' technology will stop the early 'warez' leaks, they will just find a 'weaker' link to exploit in the chain!

      like dropping the disc out of the toilet window to collect later or get collected, or ripping the disc at work, heck why not take the silver foil you wrap your packed lunch in home to recycle ;)

      So how much will this system cost per factory? I know they spewed out a 10 Billion dollar number world wide for losses, but if that cost is split over a million factories thats really not that much loss per factory per year.

      So if this system costs a million dollars per factory to use and it only catches say half the people, it will take like 20 years or something for the system to break even?

      Not knowing specific numbers, I am sure this system isn't cheap and they probably have to pay monthly fee's for monitoring. Sometimes the cure is worse then the disease.

      why don't they do like some of the old drug dealers did in the early 80's and make people be naked while they work 'making the product', to make sure their product doesn't walk out the door?

      This technology is very degrading to peoples dignity and violates their right to privacy. Not to mention its working theory is guilty until proven innocent.

      In my young days, when I used to be on the dark side :) , all the releases were given to us by the developers themselves, as they were themselves past or still active crackers/hackers, or press which had access to games for early review, because they were part of the scene.
      I don't know how it is today, but I am pretty sure it is the same, and I doubt that stealing at the factory has much to do with this kind of the releases.
      However hopefully such technology will be useful to protect people in many other situations.
