The way pirated media content is both created and consumed has changed dramatically since the advent of IP video and OTT distribution. The same infrastructure and tools that have revolutionized video distribution and enabled an explosion of content have also been exploited by pirates for illicit redistribution.

As piracy increasingly involves repackaging channels and other stolen content into what often appear to consumers like legitimate pay-TV services, anti-piracy systems must offer new methods that bear down on the latest piracy techniques. This session will suggest three main layers of security.

Prevention – Authentication, managed entitlements, content encryption and CA/DRM to prevent the leakage of content to unauthorized users during transport and storage.
Monitoring – Collect and analyze data not only from the CA/DRM system but also from the end-to-end distribution chain.
Traceability – Ability to trace the source of unauthorized users through forensic video watermarking solutions.
