Friend MTS, a video content protection provider, announced today its new service to enable secure streaming of live video. As content creators and broadcasters holders rush to meet the demand for live streaming video to connected devices, new systems are required to ensure that they retain control of where and when their content is consumed. Exposé Source is able to both detect misappropriated live streams on a multitude of platforms and track them back to the source of the leak where they can be stopped – in real time.
Making its debut at the Connected TV World Summit in London, participants are able to view a live demonstration of the service and talk to the engineers who created it. “Exposé Source is not a single technology, rather several proprietary components that are combined to create an integrated service that meets the rigorous demands of live video stream security” said Friend MTS co-founder and CTO, Jonathan Friend. Exposé Source adds proprietary watermarking to Friend MTS’ existing suite of specialised search, network forensics and video fingerprinting technologies, to complete the Exposé family of cloud video content protection and security services.
No other streaming security service is able to pinpoint the source of a live streaming video leak and shut it off, removing the risk of live streaming content being misappropriated. For high value events such as live sports, the security that Exposé Source provides widens the opportunity for broadcasters and content owners to safely reach any connected device without risk. “By providing a service which ensures that live streaming video can be securely distributed, we are supporting the expansion of IP delivered video to the largest possible audience” said Friend MTS CEO, Charles Tillinghast.
