Content owners will be able to utilize VO's dynamic watermarking as a service on the Harmonic VOS360 SaaS platform for the entire duration of sports events. The server-side software can easily be used, on the fly, by new and existing customers.

VO's dynamic watermarking detects content redistributed from broadcast, IPTV, and OTT networks. Using the state-of-the-art technology, operators can identify and remove the source of restreaming within minutes, which is critical for live sports events. Blind identification on VO's dynamic watermarking technology eliminates the need for metadata and enables content providers to automatically detect the chunk size of the original stream. Fully scalable, dynamic watermarking can scan millions of devices at once and instantly pinpoint those that are pirating content.

Harmonic's VOS360 cloud platform simplifies the delivery and monetization of live sports content at scale, ensuring low latency and pristine video quality up to UHD. Running on three major public clouds, the end-to-end SaaS platform provides unparalleled agility, resiliency, security, and scalability for a superior viewing experience. Based on a pay-per-use business model, the VOS360 platform enables operators to only pay for watermarking when needed.

Viaccess-Orca will demonstrate its dynamic watermarking technology at IBC2022, Sept. 9-12 at stand 1.A51. Harmonic will highlight its VOS360 platform during one-on-one meetings with attendees at IBC2022, in stand 1.B20.
