Civolution is the leading provider of technology and services for identifying, managing and monetizing media content.
The company offers an extensive portfolio of cutting edge watermarking and fingerprinting technology solutions for forensic tracking of media assets in pre-release, digital cinema, PayTV and online.
The development and widespread adoption of broadband internet, new TV distribution platforms, and enabled devices has made it easier than ever for content owners to reach their audiences, and for consumers to access and consume multimedia content whenever and wherever they choose.
In this new media universe, in which content is constantly getting easier to obtain, save, mash up, share and stream, the potential for illegal copies of content to become accessible for free or outside the scope of a subscription is preventing rights holders and – ultimately consumers – from fully benefiting. Securing media content and setting innovative management systems has become paramount for all the players in the media eco-system, from content owners, rights holders, distributors, and marketers/advertisers to end-users, in helping to build sustainable business streams.
Civolution is headquartered in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, with offices in London, New York and Los Angeles.
Civolution was formed in October 2008 as a spin-off from Royal Philips Electronics.
