SECURITY HOLOGRAM

From July 2008 until June 2009, a Security Hologram was attached on the packing as well as on the rear side of the unit. Newer boxes again ship without this hologram.
Instead, in the future a plugin shall be available, calculating a verification number that can be entered and checked on Dream Multimedia’s website.
