ProofPositive confirms content delivery without watermarking
February 7, 2008
XOrbit has released ProofPositive, its new content delivery confirmation system that offers a comprehensive, instant way to validate the correct delivery of content over the last mile of the broadcast chain, from the satellite or cable provider to the viewer’s home.
ProofPositive eliminates the need to watermark content by deploying systems directly in consumer homes that can automatically capture aired programs in their entirety. The ProofPositive server installed in the master broadcasting facility then uses a complex algorithm to compare the stream from the consumer’s location with the master broadcast stream. When ProofPositive identifies anomalies that drop below the broadcaster’s predefined threshold, the system automatically e-mails an error notification to the broadcaster. For more information, visit:
