Verimatrix unveiled its latest innovation in user-specific forensic watermarking, StreamMark.
Patent-pending StreamMark uses a highly efficient server-side embedding process to uniquely mark compressed video files during delivery, even if the video files are encrypted. Mass delivery of uniquely marked content offers a valuable tool to support revenue generation in emerging video consumption models.
This powerful new solution was developed in collaboration with major film studios and is specifically designed to enable early release windows for premium video on demand (VoD) content.
StreamMark embeds robust, secure and imperceptible tracing information in compressed content in an on-the-fly process during delivery to standard decoders and media players. Because the embedding process is designed with extremely low overhead requirements, a mark can be easily added to H.264 or MPEG-2 stream-based video with negligible performance impact, even when that delivery is facilitated through a content delivery network (CDN).
StreamMark can easily be integrated in today's distribution networks using existing infrastructure, processing power and storage.
