Los Angeles—Fortium, a leading provider of digital content security solutions for media and entertainment, today announces Outloud Audio, Los Angeles and New York, as a new customer for MediaSeal®, its file encryption software, which protects unaired TV and movie content at file level during the sensitive stages prior to release. In the current climate of increased concerns over cyber-crime, MediaSeal protects against leaks and accidental distribution by raising studio defences.
“Our clients' media security is paramount,” commented Mark Kondracki, Principal of Outloud Audio. “When I saw how easily we could encrypt files with MediaSeal at file level, it became the cornerstone of our media protection process for our stages in L.A. and New York City. We love knowing that encrypted MediaSeal files are rendered unplayable outside of our facilities.”
MediaSeal was created in collaboration with a major film studio to specifically address complex and busy workflows where security has traditionally been difficult to implement. MediaSeal, which is continually modified and integrated into third party applications, is used by over 200 facilities to protect sensitive content from unauthorized access and piracy.
“We are delighted to be working with Outloud Audio,” said Mathew Gilliat-Smith, CEO of Fortium. “The multi-factor authentication offered by MediaSeal means studios can add a crucial and seamless layer of security for their content, at user and file level, for the most vulnerable areas of post-production such as sound and picture editing, international dubbing, digital cinema distribution and marketing.”
Fortium Technologies is a leading provider of digital content security for media and entertainment supplying innovative technologies that give businesses greater control over their digital content. MediaSeal file encryption protects all file types in Windows and Mac and can be used for all b2b workflows. Fortium’s products also protect the Academy and BAFTA award screeners with Patronus and Blu-Lock anti-rip.
