Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services, has introduced an expanded range of VideoMark content tracking and watermarking solutions. Using different components of a greatly extended VideoMark toolbox and the integrated hardware subsystems of today’s most advanced system-on-chips (SoCs), Verimatrix now offers a comprehensive spectrum of forensic anti-piracy capabilities within its Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) Ultra architecture. The latest VideoMark live profile is specifically designed to protect valuable linear content against real-time re-broadcasting threats and subscription fraud and offers a more secure and technologically superior approach to existing watermarking methods for live broadcasts.
“Watermarking is an important component of Verimatrix’s layered content and revenue security strategy. With the flexibility of the VideoMark toolbox, we are building on our watermarking heritage, broad SoC partner ecosystem and content owner relationships to bring a comprehensive and integrated set of solutions for operators,” said Verimatrix CTO Petr Peterka. “It is well known that re-broadcasting piracy is a growing threat to operator revenues, particularly with sports. The VideoMark live profile was developed as a better alternative to effectively identify marks and block leaks of live content in real time.”
