Civolution Preps OTT Platforms for Premium Content

--By Steve Donohue

Civolution took a key step toward allowing movie studios and other content owners to deliver premium content to connected TVs and other devices, integrating its watermark technology with an encoding system from Digital Rapids.

The companies said the combination of Civolution's NextGuard watermark pre-processing technology and the StreamZ and StreamZHD encoding systems from Digital Rapids will allow for the delivery of pay-per-view content through over-the-top video services. NextGuard applies a unique ID to every piece of content streamed to a connected TV, PC, tablet or game console. More.
