Watermarking Over-the-Top Video
Video on Demand and TV Everywhere services are increasingly turning to industry-standard video streaming technologies to reach their customers. The reliance on app-based streaming on platforms from mobile phones and tablets to MVPD-issued set-top boxes and Smart TVs creates the opportunity to add forensic video watermarking at scale, while remaining compatible with those standard products. Server-side watermarking creates uniquely identified video on the fly while streaming content to any type of device.
