Axon, Civolution sell 175th watermarking solution

December 20, 2013

Axon, the modular broadcast infrastructure, monitoring and control specialist, and Civolution, a provider of technology and solutions for identifying, managing and monetising content, are celebrating their spartnership with the joint sale of their 175th watermarking solution which has seen many millions of downloaded apps that instantly sync to entertainment content through watermarked audio streams.

Axon and Civolution teamed up to integrate Civolution’s digital audio watermarking for audience measurement and 2nd screen synchronisation capabilities with Axon’s modular interfacing and conversion product line, Synapse.

“We are pleased that the expectations that both parties had for this collaboration are being fulfilled”, comments Harry Kanters, Axon’s Director Marketing & Sales. “The Synapse platform combines with Civolution’s audio watermarking to provide a very flexible synchronisation solution and support loudness control from Linear Acoustic, Junger Audio, and various Dolby processing capabilities”.

The audio watermarking solution has been deployed in a wide variety of projects with dozens of leading broadcasters and app developers around the world. Audio watermarking offers some key features (such as real-time identification, support for live and time-shifted content, etc) and is significantly more scalable compared to fingerprinting. Civolution’s watermarking has proved to be highly robust and, combined with Axon modular hardware, can support virtually any combination of audio processing requirements.
