Viaccess-Orca, a global player in the protection and enhancement of content services, and ContentArmor, a global provider of watermarking technologies for the media industry, have joined forces to strengthen the protection of UHD premium content.

ContentArmor watermark technology has been integrated into the full range of Viaccess-Orca’s Sentinel content protection solutions, including hybrid card/cardless CAS and proprietary DRM products for multiscreen TV.
