IMATAG — Leaks

Consumer Electronics

This smartphone manufacturer fights product leaks by watermarking all of its images before launch.

Executive summary

This smartphone manufacturer, serving dozens of countries around the world, needed to keep the visuals of its products confidential until the official launch.

Using the IMATAG Leaks solution, they marked all their product visuals throughout the image production chain, until their distribution to commercial partners.

This process hides the recipient ID in each copy of the image. Thus, even after the usual compression on social networks, the images broadcast by some leakers revealed their origin.
This company now marks its content before each product launch.

Success Story

How we worked together

Challenges

Product leaks and premature releases bring launch campaign ROI down to 0, while dramatically impacting sales of previous models. This company needed to discover, patch and prevent the source of these leaks.

Observation

Potential leakers could be internal, marketplaces, influencers, journalists, serial tech leakers.
Most vulnerable moments were during industrialisation phase, while sharing marketing campaigns under embargo, populating marketplaces catalogs before launch.
Usual leaked images are catalog visuals, renders, packshots, posters.

How Product Helped

After integrating IMATAG Leaks into their content production chain, the company now systematically and automatically inserts invisible code into its images. This traceability allows them to identify at which stage of production or distribution of the image the leak occurred.

Results

Before launching a product, the company and its partners now work together more serenely. If a product visual is released during the embargo period, they can react quickly to protect subsequent campaigns.
