Verimatrix Announces Standalone Forensic Watermarking Options
LAS VEGAS -- Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today announced two major additions to its forensic watermarking offerings with the availability of the Standalone VideoMark solution for IP and broadcast networks and the extended server-side watermarking capabilities of StreamMark to support adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming. Through the proven VideoMark and StreamMark offerings, Verimatrix equips video service providers with a range of more flexible anti-piracy tools and deployment options that they need to secure and monetize the latest premium content services and delivery methods. These offerings complement the issuance of updated watermarking security guidelines from the Ultra HD Forum where Verimatrix played a leading role.
The award-winning client-side VideoMark solution is now offered in a configuration independent of VCAS to provide operators with greater flexibility as they build their multi-layered security platform for all types of premium content services. Also a core component of Verimatrix’s next-generation VCAS Ultra platform, the Standalone VideoMark solution extends Verimatrix’s robust video tracking and forensic identification capabilities to work alongside third-party conditional access (CA) and digital rights management (DRM) systems.
The capabilities of StreamMark, Verimatrix’s server-side forensic watermarking solution, have also been expanded to protect premium content delivered via HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and standard DASH ABR formats to enable early release windows and other premium content business models. The solution is inherently DRM-agnostic and integrates with leading encoder and CDN components to protect unicast over-the-top (OTT) delivery by uniquely marking compressed video files, even if they are encrypted.
