CRL's Audio Watermarking is a technique for embedding data codes within audio in such a way that the perceived quality of the audio is undisturbed. In a music application, it can be used for persistent identification in the following ways:

  • An ID code can be added during production transaction.

  • Tracking codes identifying the purchaser can be added when the music is sold or played.

  • Access control codes can be added that enable a user to play or copy the music; this can also be used to prevent a user from playing or copying music.

CRL's Audio Watermarking technology has the benefits of audibility, high payload, and robustness. The robustness features include:

  • Analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion

  • Compression (e.g., MP3, AAC)

  • Radio and TV broadcast (AM, FM)
