Widevine Moves to Integrate its Digital Forensics into PCs, Set-tops, Consumer Devices

Widevine Technologies has integrated its digital forensics solution into a range of new and legacy consumer-electronics devices, enabling studios, broadcasters and video operators to trace the spread of premium content and thereby deter theft. This device-level capability incorporates Cinea's "Running Marks" watermarking technology.



The first devices embedded with Widevine Mensor include Scientific-Atlanta's IPN430MC, which is part of Scientific-Atlanta's family of IP set tops supporting advanced codecs, HDTV and DVR, Microsoft Windows personal computers, Motorola's Kreatel 1710, and the AmiNet 110 and AmiNet 124 set top boxes from Amino Communications.



Widevine Mensor uses multiple watermarking technologies to ensure robust digital forensics that enable studios, broadcasters and operators to track where, when and to what device content is delivered--regardless of network, device or video format. The system watermarks and fingerprints content at each stage of a multi-node content delivery network. Studios, broadcasters and operators can track where, when and to what device content is delivered--regardless of network, device or video format. In the event of a theft, this approach helps pinpoint the breach in security to a location in the network.
