Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept within a secure storage unit in Site-76. A standard DVD player and television set are provided for testing. SCP-XXXX-1 is SCP-XXXX-2 is to be kept with the cap on except during testing.

Description: SCP-XXXX is composed of two parts - a DVD (SCP-XXXX-1) and a permanent marker with no identifying brand on the casing (SCP-XXXX-2). When SCP-XXXX-1 is inserted into a compatible disc drive or media player, the player will react as it normally would when a blank disc is inserted. When a subject is written on the surface of SCP-XXXX-1 using SCP-XXXX-2, the playback will show a recording in the style of a documentary on the subject.

The recording shown by SCP-XXXX typically does not correspond to any existing media and appears to be wholly original. Persons who appear in the recordings do not have any memory of this. The length of the recording does not seem to be affected by the usual storage limitations of a DVD.

SCP-XXXX-1 cannot be removed until the end of the recording, or until the disc drive is destroyed. In the latter case, SCP-XXXX-1 has not been observed to sustain any damage. Once it is removed from the disc drive, SCP-XXXX-1 is once again blank. The anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX only manifest when both SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 are used together; standard permanent markers and standard DVDs have not displayed any anomalous properties when exposed to either SCP-XXXX-1 or SCP-XXXX-2.

SCP-XXXX was discovered in 2014 when an employee of the ██████████ Library attempted to burn an educational video intended for a sex education program onto SCP-XXXX-1, labelling the blank disc using SCP-XXXX-2 (see Test Log XXXX-17/9/2014). Both items were obtained by Agent ██████. Foundation agents have been unsuccessful in tracing the origin of either object.
