Friend MTS ASiD watermarking integrated with Oregan’s SparQ Android TV Middleware

Birmingham, UK – April 5, 2019 – Friend MTS, the Emmy Award-winning content and revenue protection specialist, today announced that it has brought premium content level security to Android TV by integrating its ASiD subscriber watermarking with Oregan Networks’ Android TV Operator Tier solution.

The ASiD subscriber-level watermarking and monitoring for Android Operator Tier platforms allows service providers to rapidly and cost-effectively identify illegal content redistribution, and revoke the access of the subscribers responsible for the theft in a matter of minutes.

Simon Hanna, Regional Vice President, EMEA at Friend MTS, said: “We’ve witnessed a significant increase in the level of interest in Android TV from across the operator landscape, including tier-one pay TV platforms delivering premium sports and entertainment content. These key players require a high level of protection against streaming piracy, and this is where subscriber-level watermarking has been proven to make a real difference.”

Mark Perry, CEO of Oregan Networks added: “Oregan is delighted to be delivering a future-proof solution which secures high quality premium content across a range of devices and services with Friend MTS’ advanced watermarking. With the growing proliferation of Android TV devices in the telecoms and broadcast segments, the importance of enabling appropriate levels of content protection is heightened, making this UHD/HD solution an indispensable part of the content delivery value chain, for the purposes of safeguarding revenues and ensuring continued growth of the subscriber base.”

Android TV commercialisation solutions from Oregan Networks combine the company’s SparQ for Android middleware and an Operator Tier Launcher product with expert system integration services, tailored for pay TV providers deploying Android TV solutions across OTT, IPTV, and Hybrid Broadcast networks, delivering live and on-demand premium 4K UHD / HD services, including major league sports content.

Friend MTS’ ASiD is the most widely deployed subscriber-level watermarking solution globally. Suitable for live channels, pay-per-view events and on-demand video, the watermarking is imperceptible to viewers and scalable for the largest live events. ASiD has been independently tested for robustness and evaluated by ‘golden eyes’, making it Hollywood Studio-approved and meeting the demands of major sports rights owners.

Visitors to NAB 2019 will be able to learn more about ASiD watermarking for Android TV by visiting booth SU8921. More details about Friend MTS are available at www.friendmts.com.
