Verimatrix Forensic Watermarking Receives Accreditation from ChinaDRM Lab’s SART Certification

  • Innovative Forensic Watermarking Capabilities Validated for Protecting Premium Video Content Delivery

LAS VEGAS — NAB Show 2018 (Booth #SU7102) — Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for network-connected devices and services, today announced that its robust forensic watermarking capabilities have been evaluated and validated by ChinaDRM Lab, the official testing organization of the State Administration of Radio and Television (SART, formerly SAPPRFT ) of the People’s Republic of China. Receiving SART certification attests to the strength of Verimatrix’s session-based video forensic watermarking technology, which has become a critical technique for addressing threats of redistribution on premium value content such as UHD/4K, early release and live sports services.

Verimatrix pioneered the concept of digital forensic watermarking to track piracy to the source in 2005 and has since developed a range of flexible anti-piracy tools and deployment options video services providers need to secure and monetize the latest premium content services and delivery methods. Whether deployed standalone or as a core component of the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) architecture, its forensic watermarking solutions offer powerful tools for tracing illegitimate copies of digital content straight to the source.

“We are extremely proud to have received this certification, further validating our credibility as a global leader in the practical application of forensic watermarking solutions,” said Verimatrix CTO Petr Peterka. “Verimatrix has been working side-by-side with Hollywood studios for many years to establish the industry standard for securing and monetizing the latest premium content services and delivery methods, so it is crucial that we equip service providers with the cutting-edge technology, that not only ensures that they are fully compliant, but also helps them to stay ahead in the race against piracy. Through its comprehensive evaluation, ChinaDRM confirms just that.”

SART certification is the latest of numerous validations Verimatrix has received for its forensic watermarking capabilities. Its VideoMark® client-side solution is pre-integrated with an unmatched number of state-of-the-art chipset vendors, devices and smart TVs, including the 2017-2018 next-generation line from Samsung Electronics to establish a secure, end-to-end chain of custody across the UHD ecosystem. The solution is also a four-time winner of the CSI Award for best UHD technology.
