ContentArmor, First Watermark Vendor to Complete Cartesian’s Robustness Tests
ContentArmor is the first Video Watermark vendor to complete Cartesian's robustness evaluation
Rennes, France(10 Jan 2018)
ContentArmor is announcing that its video watermarking solution is the first one to complete Cartesian’s robustness evaluation. Cartesian’s thorough set of robustness tests has been defined in collaboration with content owners including major studios to benchmark watermarking solutions against common practices of pirates.
"From Hollywood to sports leagues, premium content owners and distributors need to protect their assets and forensic watermarking is key to deter and hinder piracy," said Alain Durand, CEO of ContentArmor. "We are very proud to be the first vendor to complete Cartesian’s testing. Cartesian’s test report details the level of efficiency and robustness of our video watermarking solution to our customers and to the market."
During this assessment, the videos watermarked by ContentArmor were modified by Cartesian using transformations (compression, cropping, camcording, screencasting, etc.) routinely used by pirates when they steal video content from legitimate services. Cartesian then verified that the watermark payload was recoverable using ContentArmor’s watermark detector.
