Linear

Round the clock platform protection

When your channels are illegally streamed, it does more than enrich criminals, it takes away control of your service and brand. In a world of increasing bandwidth, 24/7 broadcasts and device proliferation, it is harder than ever to control unauthorised use of your video.

Linear is the most effective platform protection solution in its class. It is the only end-to-end service that continuously monitors for the retransmission of pay-tv channels online. The fully automated service provides tireless defence as it continuously monitors for evidence of your content being redistributed. When a stream is detected, the system traces the full network path and works up the chain to identify the host.

Service highlights

Built for live channel broadcast

Real time video fingerprint generation and detection integrate into an efficient fail safe workflow which is a key requirement in a live environment – it takes seconds from transmission to detection.

Fully automated with human oversight

Once sources of streams are identified, network forensic technology automatically completes a total path analysis, identifying how best to facilitate removal. All operations are supported by our 24/7 global operations centre.

Highly scalable

Lightweight and resilient fingerprint matching, and the fully automated nature of the monitoring process, ensure a highly scalable operation. We have proven our capability of scaling to support hundreds of feeds simultaneously for the world’s largest broadcasters.

Locates underlying infrastructure

Sophisticated network forensics technology enable us to dive deep beneath the video stream and identify the underlying infrastructure delivering the actual video packets. Taking milliseconds to automatically complete a total path analysis, this unique technology gives a true picture of the scale of the threat, and how best to address it.

24/7 global monitoring

Our automated systems work tirelessly around the clock to give continuous visibility of the complete online piracy landscape. This automated process is perfectly complemented by our 24/7 operations team who triage complex cases for further investigation.
