Comprehensive Content Security
Your content is encrypted along the entire workflow chain to ensure complete security: during file transfer, while processing/queuing, and the output file-set.
We have also integrated CloudDat™ by Data Expedition to add quick and secure transferring to and from AWS as an added option.
Our API can use the Common Encryption (CENC) standard for playback compatibility with studio-recognized DRM systems such as Microsoft® PlayReady®, Google Widevine™ Modular, CMLA-OMA, and FairPlay Streaming (via CBC mode).
Session-based Forensic Watermarking
Studios increasingly require enhanced content security measures. We enable session-based forensic watermarking to identify theft sources down to the user account level. Unique invisible information is embedded into streams which cannot be removed, regardless of distortions or alterations being made to content.
Below are a few examples of Video Toolkit capabilities, however, many more input and output combinations are supported.
