Civolution is the leading provider of technology and solutions to identify, manage and monetize media content. The company offers an extensive portfolio of cutting edge digital watermarking and fingerprinting applications for media interaction (accurate and real-time video synchronization for 2nd screen and smart TVs), media intelligence (audience measurement and media monitoring for television, radio and internet) and media protection (content filtering and forensic marking of media assets in pre-release, digital cinema, pay TV 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.
Who are we?
Civolution was formed in October 2008 as a spin-off of Royal Philips Electronics. In August 2008, Philips Content Identification, a business unit of Philips Electronics, assumed full ownership of its joint venture Teletrax. The combined entity was spun out of Philips in October giving birth to Civolution.
In July 2009, Civolution took over the Software and Technology Solution from Thomson (Thomson STS), formerly NextAmp.
Civolution today is the world’s leading watermarking and fingerprinting technology solutions provider.
