Protect your content with unparalleled watermarking technology that identifies individual users and offers rapid investigation reporting
Forensic watermarking is a highly sensitive security measure that protects your content by attaching a code, or “fingerprint,” to individual users. It removes the veil of anonymity and makes it possible to identify who is watching your content, which in turn makes it possible to easily identify and locate those users in the event of a piracy breach. It’s like having security cameras on every shelf in a store, or having a customer register their name or a business card after making a purchase. If piracy does occur, forensic watermarking can help you pinpoint who’s behind it.
Because two separate versions of a file are combined to create one half of a forensically watermarked film, the size of the watermarked file is roughly quadruple the size of a non-watermarked film. For example, if the average feature length film is 11.25gb, a forensically watermarked version would be about 45gb. It’s a larger file, but it carries a best-in-class security feature along with it.
Forensic watermarking is included in our premium package, but is available as an add-on to the professional package.
Fast. Generally speaking, we can provide an investigation report in a matter of (business) hours depending on the quality of the pirated content.
