The Enterprise Edition workflow adds an imperceptible digital watermark to your digital images, allowing communication of copyright information and usage rights, and tracking where and how they are being used. The solution identifies sites where your images are found online, and helps others locate and contact you when they want to learn more about your images.

This, in essence, turns your digital content into a storefront online. You reduce the inefficiencies of traditional content distribution methods and improve your profits, all with minimal resources and upfront investment.
Ensure information about your images is permanently attached to them
Digimarc for Images communicates image ownership persistently through copying, manipulation, editing, cropping, compression and decompression, encryption and decryption — all without affecting the quality of the image or the enjoyment of consumers. With images traveling at lightning-speed across the Internet, you want to be sure your ownership and contact information remains permanently attached regardless of where they may end up.

Digimarc helps you protect against the use of obsolete images as well as early leaks of embargoed images for new product announcements.

Information about who is viewing your images, what they are most interested in and where they are accessing them can be used to enhance targeted marketing and promotional campaigns and boost sales.
