For immediate release

December 21st, 2016, Sausalito California

Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ:DMRC) and Equilibrium today announced the expanded integration of the Digimarc 4.0 SDK into the MediaRich® Server and MediaRich SharePoint line of products, the leading on-demand, installable cross-media publishing system for SharePoint, websites, wireless and device delivery. Digimarc’s technology enables Equilibrium’s customers to easily embed persistent computer readable information directly into their digital assets and Equilibrium’s patented dynamic viewing technology for any file-type including Office, Adobe PDF and other document formats to improve centralized asset management and security by forensically embedding content ownership and identifying where content is being used online. Equilibrium’s “View Anywhere” technology called OneViewer, when combined with MediaRich’s on-the-fly innovative content processing engine can transform any content, into virtually any filetype (ie. Documents to images, 1080P HD videos to any format, pdf’s, Adobe Illustrator and camera raw images to web or wireless formats) enabling embedding of Digmarc ID’s during save or viewing. This effectively provides the missing security layer for virtually any application, including the securing for SOX, Hipaa and GDPR compliance of read-only functionality in all of Equilibrium’s products and integrations. Now, even a screenshot origin can be determined by enabling Equilibrium forensic RenderStream™ technology for organizations requiring compliance, government agencies and any application where the source of a leak is an important security concern.

“Digimarc technologies have been available in MediaRich Server for many years in response to numerous customer requests,” said Sean Barger, VP Enterprise Sales of Equilibrium. “We have many joint customers using MediaRich Server with Digimarc’s SDK. With this announcement we have expanded MediaRich’s capabilities to include the latest Digimarc 4.0 SDK’s and now are a reseller for the ID tracking services. Customers requiring secure website images, video and smart device support can use the Digimarc technology coupled with Equilibrium’s MediaRich engine to provide automatic, all-content preparation to any desired viewing environment enabling the ability to always determine where an asset has originated from downstream.”

Digimarc and Equilibrium’s patented dynamic universal RenderStream™ technology provides an easy, reliable way for image professionals, small businesses and large enterprises to protect their valuable photos, documents, scans and other content assets. The product’s advanced Chroma technology enables highly robust, imperceptible embedded digital watermarks to persist with images such as digital photographs, illustrations, video and more through a variety of file manipulations and transformations without affecting the quality of the content or the enjoyment of its viewers. Digimarc also offers a Search Service that continuously crawls the Web looking for uniquely watermarked images and other content and reporting where they were found. In partnership with ImageSpan™, content owners can also use LicenseStream™ to automatically license their content online or trigger their choice of remedies, such as issue “take down” notices or requests for attribution with a link back to the owner’s web site.

Custom integrations are available, and Patented Digimarc SDK licensing is required for the forensic securing of your content in any system. MediaRich’s RenderStream technology is available for licensing and integrating into any system and already has integrations with SharePoint OnPrem and in Office 365. Call us to learn more.
