ExpressPlay Anti-Piracy and Watermarking service (powered by Friend MTS) incorporates content security functionality that includes web piracy monitoring and legal enforcement for linear channels, live events and non-live VOD content. Distributors have access to a suite of managed services based on Advanced Subscriber ID (ASiD) client-side watermarking. The ASiD approach uniquely combines online piracy monitoring processes based on fingerprinting with a watermarking technology that supports fast extraction of payloads in redistributed content.

A server-side watermarking option is available through ExpressPlay Watermarking (powered by ContentArmor™). This solution embeds watermarks directly in the encoded and encrypted video bit-stream on-the-fly with no imposition of latency beyond the profiling that precedes insertion.
Some practical aspects and considerations are discussed in our blog post A security strategy for combating piracy of live sports content.
