Filmbankmedia provides content distribution and technology solutions to a wide array of vertical market sectors that range from healthcare, hotels, transport, maritime, education to outdoor cinemas, film clubs, and more. The company is also a purveyor of specialized studio approved technology solutions tailored to non-theatrical settings.

Filmbankmedia will uniquely watermark each file distributed to Filmbankmedia’s partners, using Irdeto Tracemark technology, a cloud-based managed service that embeds an invisible, unique forensic watermark into live content, either at the cloud-based headend or the client application.  Through extensive monitoring, the identity of the end-user responsible for pirated content is derived from this watermark, enabling Filmbankmedia to efficiently track, identify, and act against piracy.
