Friend MTS to highlight its 3rd gen watermarking at Sports Anti-Piracy Summit

February 14, 2019

Friend MTS, the content and revenue protection specialist, will highlight its ultra-robust, third-generation ASiD watermarking and global monitoring service at the Sports Anti-Piracy Summit 2019 (Mexico City, Mexico, February 20-21).

“Video piracy is a huge and growing threat to the sports industry but it’s not an insurmountable problem,” said Simon Hanna, Partnerships Director at Friend MTS, who will be delivering a presentation and moderating a panel discussion at the Summit.

“We’ve seen how a focused approach to fighting piracy, underpinned by content monitoring and watermarking, can transform the level of illegal redistribution in just a matter of weeks.”

Friend MTS’ ASiD service is the most widely deployed subscriber-level watermarking for premium sports and entertainment content. It can enable operators to significantly reduce the impact of streaming piracy by cutting off the pirates’ content sources within minutes.

The watermarking has Hollywood studio approval following ‘golden eyes’ evaluation, and the robustness of the service has been independently tested by Cartesian.

Suitable for live channels and on-demand assets, ASiD is highly effective against piracy on Android and Kodi illicit streaming devices, as well as mobile apps, websites and social media.
