#1 WHY do you need Dynamic Watermarking? We discussed why it is vital to defend live events and why defending them can be challenging. We also reviewed the scope of illegal IPTV and the main requirements for successfully securing live premium content without compromising on quality or causing latency.
#2 HOW does it work? We will introduce the core technology behind the service and look at some of the technological challenges that needed to be overcome; focusing on the essential role of dynamically renewable algorithms with real-time adaptation, and why the watermarking developed by b<>com’s Innovation Center required full resilience to direct-attacks.
#3 WHAT is the VO Dynamic Watermarking service? We will illustrate how the service works via a use case demonstration, describing the required actions timeline at each step of the way, from two weeks prior to a live event through D-Day take down of illicit streaming within 15 minutes.
