Developed by Friend MTS, the ASiD service incorporates global channel monitoring with fingerprint-based content recognition, and this integrates with watermarking for subscriber identification. This highly automated, client-side service is regarded as ideal for broadcast and OTT applications.

“Integrating Friend MTS’ ASiD subscriber watermarking within our PRESTOplay video player SDKs, alongside our DRMtoday DRM licensing service and existing content protection functionality, bolsters our protected playback offer for our customers,” said Susanne Guth-Orlowski, VP business development and sales at castLabs. “This meets the needs of many premium content providers that are mandating subscriber level watermarking, especially for premium live services.”
