Anti-Piracy Protection for Movies and TV Series

Fighting Media Piracy with automatic content recognition

Movie piracy: always on the rise

A staggering number of high-quality films, original series, and various TV shows produced across the globe co-exist with a breathtaking abundance of media piracy that affects all parties involved in delivering the entertainment: content creators and distributors, OTT-platforms, and broadcasters. Losses are counted in billions of dollars of revenue.

The challenges of a movie streaming era

The global pandemic has dramatically accelerated the transition to media content consumption on streaming platforms. With theatrical releases forbidden worldwide, digital platforms have become a major source of new films and TV series and a gift to the pirates. It’s far easier for pirates to obtain high-quality recordings from digital platforms than to record traditional releases in actual movie theaters.

The timely detection and takedown of pirated films and TV series are crucial to ensuring the reach of planned legal audiences and thus securing your revenue.
