Vision247 develops anti-piracy VOD platform Tuesday 24 November 2015 PDF Print An un-watermarked copy of the content never leaves the server. • Secure transcoding technology delivers trackable content with unique embedded watermark for each user • Streaming platform provides control and distribution of content Media content distribution and IPTV specialist, Vision247, has created a bespoke video-on-demand (VOD) screening platform that enables content distributors to share and stream media assets with partners and clients around the world securely and without the risk of piracy. Vision247 has created a unique technology that transcodes content at source before leaving a dedicated server, stamping it with a viewer specific watermark embedded into the video stream. An un-watermarked copy of the content never leaves the server. This allows simple control and management of content but also enables content providers to identify and track content if it is shared without permission. “The current norm within the entertainment industry is to distribute using DVDs. This is outmoded, expensive and an open door to widespread piracy,” comments Petra Oblak, CEO of Vision247. “To date, DVD Distribution has been a necessary evil as review copies of most shows and movies are required. By considering how to combat piracy from the outset and building this into the distribution model created by Vision247, content providers can ensure the integrity of all its content assets.” Easily integrated into existing infrastructure, users can view content from the password protected media content areas. Management tools such as the simple uploading of VOD content and usage monitoring, have also been designed to be incorporated into a company’s website portal. “With Vision247’s expertise in cloud-based OTT technology we have delivered a cost-effective media streaming and viewing platform that gives businesses autonomous control and management of content and offers an accessible service for its partners to view content quickly. It is also one of the most cost effective and secure platforms on the market,” Oblak concludes. -ends- About VISION247 Vision247 is uniquely positioned to provide broadcasters, TV channels and content owners a complete end-to-end set of services to allow them to manage, distribute and monetise content via, not only traditional DVB platforms, but also the disruptive new world of IPTV and OTT delivery.
