As it battles to combat online video content piracy, the Streaming Video Alliance has published a technical document concerning implementing forensic watermarking as a key tactic for operators.

The Forensic Watermarking Implementation Considerations for Streaming Media was developed by the Alliance's Privacy and Protection Working Group.

"The piracy of online video content is a significant issue for content owners and distributors. Watermarking is a useful tool to combat theft as it permits tracing stolen copies back to the source of the leak," said Jason Thibeault, executive director of the Streaming Video Alliance. "Our technical document aims to educate industry members on different watermarking methods, rather than promoting any specific approach, to help identify what best fits their organisation's specific media workflows and business needs."

Additionally, Yves Boudreau of Ericsson and Jens Loeffler of Adobe were elected as new board members. The Alliance will hold its next meeting in Budapest, Hungary in October 2018. Working Groups in the areas of Measurement/QoE, Open Caching, Advertising, Privacy & Protection, Networking & Transport, Live Streaming and the VR Study Group will meet.
