The unauthorized redistribution of content, especially restreaming of live sports events, leads to millions of dollars in annual lost revenue. Rights owners of all types have forced video service operators to comply with increasingly comprehensive and strict security policies to identify and protect ownership of content.
Why Verimatrix Watermarking
Verimatrix has pioneered client-side and server-side, session-based forensic watermarking, which tracks and enforces content rights by inserting session identifiers (“payload”) into media at one or more points in a transmission system. Both can identify the piracy point-of-origin to force a shutdown of illicit distribution or other action at a video service operator’s discretion.
