Irdeto launches ‘next-generation’ Piracy Control

Irdeto has used the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to launch its next-generation Piracy Control solution for detection and enforcement of online piracy.

Irdeto_logoThe security offering now provides data-driven web video discovery tools with analyst oversight, multi-language site searches, integrated social media and search engine discovery, as well as peer-to-peer stream discovery such as SopCast and Ace Stream.

Irdeto said the new features allow content owners and distributors to quickly and accurately identify and shut down pirated content across streaming video-on-demand, direct download and hybrid pirate sites.

“The biggest threat to the content creation industry is content redistribution over the internet,” said Rory O’Connor, senior vice-president of cybersecurity services, Irdeto.

“As pirates become more business savvy, content owners, studios and operators need a trusted security partner who has the in-depth understanding of piracy and the technology expertise to implement a robust anti-piracy strategy to disrupt a pirate’s business model.”

Irdeto Piracy Control is a scalable solution that now offers artificial intelligence and machine learning for automatic logo detection, text and facial recognition and video fingerprinting for automated tagging of metadata. It is available as part of the Irdeto 360 Security Suite.
