PallyCon service announces Apple certified ProRes for distributor watermarking
November 17, 2021
INKA ENTWORKS’ PallyCon service has added another powerful feature to its technical basket for pre-release contents in the form of Apple ProRes certification. ProRes is a proprietary codec technology developed by Apple that can process HD videos up to 8K resolution. Apple offers ProRes certification to a selected set of companies for their services and products.
Highlighting the importance of including the authorized ProRes codec in the PallyCon service bouquet, Govindraj Basatwar, Global Business Head of PallyCon, says, “Final Cut Pro is the go-to tool for editing HD and UHD video products in most big content owners and Hollywood studios. The ProRes family of codecs allow high-quality, high-performance editing in this editing suite. Premium content producers want content security with robust distributor watermarking. The ProRes certification for INKA ENTWORKS’ PallyCon service, thus, integrates the best of video processing and with the highest content security standards.“
PallyCon’s distributor watermarking for file-based B2B distribution allocates a unique identification to each copy designated to different content aggregators and OTT platforms and matches it with the leaked video asset. The solution is resilient against various attacks like compression recording, collusion and re-encoding, etc., showing a solid deterrent against leaking.
The solution supports mezzanine file formats (like ProRes and XDCAM) and interfaces easily with third-party workflow management.
The distributor watermarking service is a premium addition to the suite of PallyCon content protection, warehousing, and forensic watermarking technologies designed to secure and guard apps and developers against various breaches and content piracy.
