Friend MTS now interoperable with AWS

Friend MTS’s Distribution iD watermarking service is now interoperable with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elemental MediaConvert.

The move means that content owners can now use Friend MTS to provide an added layer of security against streaming piracy for their AWS-hosted on-demand video.

Friend MTS’s distributor-level watermarking, along with its content monitoring service, enables providers of on-demand content to gather intelligence about the sources of streaming piracy.

“The integration of our watermarking with AWS Elemental MediaConvert video processing allows AWS Elemental customers to quickly deploy extra security without changing their content delivery workflows,” said Simon Hanna, partnerships director, Friend MTS.

“Importantly, this distributor-level watermarking can be readily integrated with subscriber-level watermarking for even greater protection against streaming piracy.”
