As a result of the spread of streaming services and easy access to the internet, entertainment via video-on-demand is now widely available.
enormously well-known and respected in every region of the world. Content has been able to freely flow over national borders as well as restrictions posed by language or culture as a direct result of this, and this ability has directly led to the proliferation of online media.
In today’s world, all creative studios are expected to have a strategy for the global distribution of their finished products.
The beginning of the digital age has led to a growth in the complexity of distribution networks, as well as an increase in the complexity of the providers themselves.
It is necessary for content to go through several countries before it can reach the consumer who will ultimately consume it. The content windowing solutions that SVOD providers utilise can be categorised as current content, library material, and network-owned services.
Each of these three types of content can be further broken down into subcategories. TV-everywhere content is currently being broadcast on television networks, and certain subscription video-on-demand services (such as CBS All Access and HBO Now) stream videos from their own libraries, network-owned services, or first-party services.
TV-everywhere content will soon be available on mobile devices as well. The programming that is available through TV-everywhere can also be accessed on mobile devices.
It is necessary to make use of forensic watermarking and stream content that is secured by DRM protected content in order to ensure the integrity of the content at each and every stage of the content value chain.
After the initial step, which can take place either in the recording studio or in the cloud, the forensic watermarking process is then sent to the device that is utilised by the end-user.
The use of Video watermarking is helpful in detecting the exact time and position where the leak is occurring inside the distribution network.
This information may then be used to pinpoint the source of the leak. Because the watermark of each individual customer can be encoded, it is feasible to determine the particular origin of any infringement and take the necessary steps to rectify the situation.
Distributor watermarking is a another wonderful approach that film studios may employ to keep track of their distributors and punish those who are discovered to be frequent infringers of the terms of distribution agreement.
The production company may be able to improve its strategy by collaborating with distribution channels that do not satisfy the conditions that the studio has set for the security of its products.
This is because the studio has established these conditions in order to ensure the safety of the company’s products.
A forensic watermark that can be relied upon also needs to be capable of withstanding the transmission of data in the form of the content.
When digital content that has already been created is redistributed, it frequently undergoes a number of alterations, both in terms of its presentation and of the structure it is stored in.
These changes can occur in one or both of these areas (for example, during the transcoding process). Normal information is destroyed whenever a file is transcoded; however, a robust digital watermark can always be linked back to its original place, regardless of how the file is shared.
Because of this, content producers would be able to ensure the security of their premium content across all channels of distribution, which would ultimately result in an increase in earnings.
