Pre-Book Your Chat with Custos Co-Founders to Talk About the Future of Content Protection

Meet Custos Media Technologies to find out how we’re using a combination of blockchain tech and forensic watermarking to move media monitoring to the crowd.


Stand A05, Hall 11

Custos – the first and only company in the world to use blockchain technology to catch copyright infringers of premium content – will attend “the world’s most influential media, entertainment and tehnology show”, IBC2019, in Amsterdam this September.

Before Custos, if you wanted to use forensic watermarking to protect your media from piracy and copyright infringement, you had two choices: look for pirated content yourself, or pay a company that specializes in (centralised) pirated content detection to do it. The former is tedious, the latter doesn’t scale.

Using a decentralized leak detection model, Custos moves media monitoring to the crowd by decentralizing the search for leaked content to human bounty hunters across the globe, so we can pick up things machines would miss, and you can enjoy 24/7 global, online and offline monitoring – even into the dark web, behind paywalled pirated content, private file sharing groups, and into campus networks.

To date, Custos’ content watermarking and distribution solutions have protected over 500,000 films, e-books, and confidential documents from copyright infringement, using blockchain-based media tracking ─ to reduce piracy by 99.97%, in markets across four continents.

IBC is the world’s most influential media, entertainment & technology show. Bringing together over 55,000 professionals from over 150 countries spanning the creation, management and delivery of electronic media and entertainment. It also showcases some of the world’s latest innovations in media technology. IBC enables visitors to not only see the latest media technology, but also to touch, test, compare and place orders. It’s where business is done. It attracts over 1,700 exhibitors from all around the world and more than 1,000 of the world’s top media technology journalists. The flagship IBC Conference features a curated programme including over 400 of the world’s leading industry influencers and experts providing an authoritative and independent view and helping to shape the future of the industry. IBC is hosted in the heart of Europe’s startup technology scene in Amsterdam from 13 – 17 September 2019.
