Anti-piracy and content forensics firm Friend MTS is taking advantage of NAB 2016 to unveil a new brand next week, as well as premium protection solutions.

The new Studio service is designed to protect studios, broadcasters and content owners from unauthorised redistribution of their non-live content pre and post-transmission. It will use proprietary technology to identify unauthorised files, trace the full network path of each file and enforce. Stopping unauthorised distribution immediately is the only way to prevent the loss of value of such content, says Friend MTS. Studio is already in use by a number of large content owners in the US.

“We’re really excited to be showing Studio for the first time at NAB this year,” commented Friend MTS technical operations director, Robert Brown. “We’re all too familiar in recent years with the impact of a blockbuster movie or anticipated TV show leaking onto the internet before its release. Preventing it from happening in the first place and stopping unauthorised redistribution immediately is the only way to maintain value for you and your distribution partners.”
