Digimarc Enhances Protection of Digital Images

Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) today announced the launch of Digimarc MyPictureMarc 2005, bringing photographers and creative professionals new layers of security to protect their digital image collections.

Digimarc MyPictureMarc 2005 delivers new digital watermarking technology, enhanced digital rights management tracking, online image backup and free visual watermarking.

Digital imaging has migrated from pre-press to a mainstay of the imaging workflow: from capture, to the digital darkroom, distribution collaboration and publication. To be effective in this paradigm creative professionals need professional-grade protection throughout the process for their digital images. Building on a decade of copyright protection experience, MyPictureMarc 2005 brings together new layers of security technology to help protect digital image portfolios.
