castLabs and ContentArmor have announced a partnership to offer watermarking for OTT content.
The two companies are integrating session-based video watermarking with castLabs’ Video Toolkit for OTT and in-flight entertainment (IFE) deployments.
The technology enables content providers to trace the source of piracy, down to individual user accounts or specific streaming sessions.
“Combating video piracy is a pressing issue for all stakeholders involved in video distribution, and we’re pleased that this integration with ContentArmor technologies gives castLabs customers a wider range of tools to help them keep their content secure”, said Michael Stattmann, CEO at castLabs.
“Our joint solution with castLabs addresses the security needs of content providers and distributors for various markets such as Live OTT and VoD. In IFE environments, the ability to perform on-the-fly watermarking is especially compelling for airlines and their system integrators as it reduces drastically their operating costs”, added Alain Durand, CEO of ContentArmor.
