Visual Watermarking

Learn how to use watermarks to protect your content against piracy and unsolicited distribution

Visual Watermarking is only available on our Enterprise level accounts.

Enable Watermarking

Watermarking can be turned on in the Workspace Settings dialog's Settings tab, under Security.  When this setting is enabled, your watermark will be applied to media upon upload.

Scroll down the list of settings, and click the button next to Visual Watermarking to enable.

 

Customizing your Watermark

Once enabled, we've provided a number of options to help you customize your watermark to fit your needs.

Text: Choose what you'd like your watermark to say
Origin: Adjust the position of the text within the frame

Color: Change the color of the text

Shadow: Add a drop shadow to help separate the text from the image behind

Opacity: Control the level of transparency of the text

Size: Modify the size of the text

Rotation: Adjust the angle of the text

User Info: Add an additional dynamic overlay at the bottom which displays each user's name, date and ip address.  This is unique to each reviewer and is only baked into the the video if the reviewer attempts a screen capture.

We've included several test images to preview your watermark and see how it works over different types of images.

Once you click Save Watermark, subsequent media uploads will have the watermark with the new settings baked into the video. 

The watermark setting always requires a transcoding stage in the upload process, even if you attempt to bypass transcoding by holding the Shift key while dragging media into the Review.
