Security & Content Protection Labs
Already widespread, piracy constitutes an even greater threat as more and more content becomes digital. Leakage risks increase drastically with file-based workflows.
- Content owners need solutions to protect themselves against piracy risks, especially during the lead-up to first release. When a leak does occur, they must be able to pinpoint the source in order to take appropriate action.
- Post Production houses need to thwart leakage to protect their reputation and liability.
- Content distributors must protect video assets to maximize the value of their rights.
All professionals handling high-value content can suffer substantial losses due to content piracy.
As marketing dynamics continue to shift, those responsible for content creation and post-production are under growing pressure to shorten time-to-market and lower costs. Security solutions must easily and seamlessly integrate into digital file-based workflows without threatening cost.
Technicolor’s Security & Content Protection Labs were created to deter piracy on high-value content from creation to consumption and to secure the digital home (Gateways, Set-Top-Boxes, Tablets). The researchers and engineers are located in Rennes and Hannover sites. Their multi-disciplinary skills including cryptography, secure architecture, media and software protection, audio and video watermaking allow to develop new, advanced anti-piracy technologies while also providing security solutions that are ready for product integration.
The Security & Content Protection laboratories publish a free quarterly newsletter which presents its vision of security. Each issue details the latest hacks and exploits, explains basic concepts such as watermarks or Digital Rights Management (DRM), and presents the most recent advances in the security realm.
