Outloud Audio Adds Fortium’s MediaSeal for File Level Encryption

Digital content security solutions firm Fortium and its file encryption software software MediaSeal have been tapped by audio post production firm Outloud Audio to help protect film and TV files before they’re released.

Outloud Audio, which specializes in automated dialogue replacement (ADR) services, counts Showtime’s “Homeland,” HBO’s “Westworld” and the FX series “Fargo” among its recent projects.

“Our clients’ media security is paramount,” said Mark Kondracki, principal of Outloud Audio, in a statement. “When I saw how easily we could encrypt files with MediaSeal at file level, it became the cornerstone of our media protection process for our stages in L.A. and New York City. We love knowing that encrypted MediaSeal files are rendered unplayable outside of our facilities.”

MediaSeal — which was created with input from film studios to address the security problems associated with content workflows today — is being used by more than 200 media and entertainment facilities, and is continues to be integrated into third-party applications, according to Mathew Gilliat-Smith, CEO of Fortium.

“We are delighted to be working with Outloud Audio,” he said. “The multi-factor authentication offered by MediaSeal means studios can add a crucial and seamless layer of security for their content, at user and file level, for the most vulnerable areas of post-production such as sound and picture editing, international dubbing, digital cinema distribution and marketing.”
