GMI Selects Clipstream® Video for Testing Movie Trailer Surveys Online
Vancouver, BC – September 6, 2006 – Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. (DSNY OTC BB) today announced that GMI (Global Market Insite, Inc.), a leading provider of global market intelligence solutions based in Seattle, Wash., will be using Clipstream™ Video for testing movie trailers online.
When testing new versions of a video clip, it is important to clients that they be locked down, so that copies don’t show up on the Internet. Clipstream™ (http://www.surveyclip.com) is unique in that it locks content to play only on authorized domains and protects against fraudulent copying and downloads. The latest feature, “Dynamic Watermarking”, allows the ID of the viewer to be dynamically integrated into the survey video, thus providing a system of tracking possible piracy.
“We added Clipstream to our arsenal of protections for a variety of reasons, most of all due to the enhanced security and tracking features offered,” notes John Jensen, executive vice president of technology for GMI’s development operations based in Vancouver, BC. “We need to be aggressive when providing safe and secure survey methods for our customers. As video and movie pirates advance their techniques, we have to bolster our solutions to stay one step ahead. Clipstream enables us to do just that.”
“GMI provides solutions to 21 of the world’s top 25 market research firms, as well as many market research departments at major corporates,” adds Steve Vestergaard, CEO of Destiny Media Technologies. “We were able to supply GMI with a core solution that fulfilled their needs and enhanced their product, without hindering the functions of their online survey tools. For both companies, this is a win/win deal.”
Increasingly, Clipstream™ is being accepted as the industry standard for secure video content in online surveys. Clipstream™ has the advantage of needing no special media players, and “instant play” functions minimize suspends. Additionally, having the highest level of piracy protection assures clients valuable pre-release content is not copied, downloaded, or played without authorization.
