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.
