Friend MTS, the content and revenue protection specialist, has announced that castLabs, a global player in premium digital video technology, has joined the ASiD Watermarking Partner Programme to better protect premium content from streaming piracy on OTT connected devices.
“Integrating Friend MTS’ ASiD subscriber watermarking within our PRESTOplay video player SDKs, alongside our DRMtoday DRM licensing service and existing content protection functionality, bolsters our protected playback offer for our customers”, said Dr Susanne Guth-Orlowski, VP Business Development & Sales at castLabs. “This meets the needs of many premium content providers that are mandating subscriber level watermarking, especially for premium live services.”
“It’s great to see castLabs join other OTT player providers in the ASiD Watermarking Partner Programme”, said Simon Hanna, Partnerships Director at Friend MTS. “We’ll continue to expand this programme during 2018, and will be partnering with set-top box SoC suppliers, middleware vendors, application developers and system integrators.”
