Cinema is a major entertainment for people in today’s life. To entertain people, a lot of investment is put on cinemas by the film makers. Their effort is being destroyed by few people by pirating the cinema content. They do it by capturing the video in mobile camera and upload it to websites or sell it to people and this goes on. In this study, a technical method is used in order to avoid false recording of video in theaters. An invisible light is projected from the screen to the whole audience that falls on the camera lens which is sensitive to infra-red light rays which alters the capturing functions of the camera. A technical method is developed for anti-piracy system for film industries using steganography technique in MATLAB and to design an IR based screen to disable mobile recording and also a GSM based immediate alert is sent to concerned authority to alert about piracy position using GPS.
