PESA Seeks Patent For Audio and Video Network Security

Looking to implement robust security measures into video production workflows, Pesa, a provider of AV distribution products and multi-channel streaming appliances, has filed the required paperwork for a patent that describes a system and method of controlling access to audio and video feeds within a closed network and the maintenance of security.

Pesa CTO Scott Barella said that while technology is pushing the envelope with regard to UHD, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and wide color gamut (WCG) signal acquisition and delivery, “there isn’t a robust conversation regarding security. This patent illustrates just how serious we are about bringing robust media protection to our customers who demand secure content.”

The current provisional patent application covers a system and method for processing both audio and video signals, which produces secure SDI video so that access to the signals can be controlled when utilized in a closed network.

For the past year, Pesa said it has been working toward the creation of a unique and patented method for securing audio and video media within the confines of a secure environment where only authorized clearance of video and audio is permitted. In addition, this new method allows only individuals with authorized clearance and credentials to have access to this protected media.
