ADB adds Civolution video watermarking

As video content security continues to be a key issue for all types of TV service providers, set-top box maker Advanced Digital Broadcast announced that it has worked with content access verification firm Civolution to add the company's video content watermarking technology to ADB digital TV STBs.

Like Verimatrix and Widevine, among others, Civolution is aiming to help curb unauthorized content access at a time when an increasing array of content is coming through STBs, some of it from Internet sources that haven't acquired the content through proper rights channels. Civolution got into the game as a joint venture and spin-off of Phillips Electronics, and the company also acquired watermarking technology last year from Thomson.
