| 02 September 2014
Video content protection provider Friend MTS is to unveil at IBC 2014 what it claims is the world's first streaming video security service that pinpoints live content leaks, instantaneously.

The new Exposť Source is designed to find and stop live streaming leaks in real time, enabling content creators and broadcasters to ensure that they retain control of where and when their content is consumed, meeting the demand for live streaming video to connected devices. The system can work with not only live streams but also video-on-demand (VOD), and does not require player, device or CDN edge modification. It also adds proprietary watermarking to the existing suite of Friend MTS specialised search, network forensics and video fingerprinting technologies, to complete a family of cloud video content protection and security services.

The company believes that the solution will see use in high value events such as live sports, widening the opportunity for broadcasters and content owners to safely reach any connected device without risk. It is confident that no other streaming security service is able to pinpoint the source of a live streaming video leak and shut it off, removing the risk of live streaming content being misappropriated.

"Exposť Source is not a single technology, rather several proprietary components that are combined to create an integrated service that meets the rigorous demands of live video stream security," explained Friend MTS founder and CTO, Jonathan Friend. Indeed the system. "Exposť Source ... has in-built leak discovery and forensic watermark detection, and enables content owners to tackle the businesses of pirate streaming services in just minutes."
