Netherlands-based content protection specialists Irdeto have launched a new online piracy monitoring and enforcement service to help operators and broadcasters protect their assets while gaining new insights on illicit consumption.
Facilitated by the 2011 acquisition of US-based BayTSP, Irdeto Intelligence Services features broad system upgrades and additional coverage of new and emerging piracy channels.
The system draws data from all major online piracy channels (peer-to-peer, web video, live streaming sites, cyberlockers, search engines and advertising networks), and is becoming one of the largest databases on unauthorised distribution worldwide.
“Irdeto Intelligence is already in place with the majority of major Hollywood Studios and premiere US-based broadcasters,” said Graham Kill, CEO of Irdeto. “We believe these piracy management services are highly germane to our pay TV customers, broadcasters and other rights holders in Europe and Asia Pacific, and now is the right time to roll those services out to the global community.”
