High Tech Campus (HTC) company Civolution can proudly display their Technology & Engineering Emmy Award, which they received for their achievement in online anti-piracy.
It was already announced in September that Civolution would receive the prize for their innovative technique to combat piracy in the film and TV world. Civolution adds a seemingly invisible watermark to video and audio which can exactly trace who distributes illegal copies of movies and series.
The software is warmly received by film producers, because they are fed up with illegal downloads. Civolution now works together with dozens of major film production companies and major technology giants in the sector.
The company was founded in 2008 as a spin-off from Philips and is now not only present at the HTC in Eindhoven, but also in France, New York and Los Angeles.
