A renowned music label handles not only album production but also visual communication surrounding releases, including photo shoots, advertising, brand image, and digital content.
Maintaining confidentiality is crucial to ensure success and excitement among fans. Visuals are shared with third-party entities under embargo during important stages such as album releases, promotional video clips, and pre-tour events.
Thus, the industry prioritizes tracking visual assets to prevent leaks at each stage, protecting visuals, satisfying the fan community, and maintaining strong relationships with suppliers.
From the very beginning of the content creation process, with the marking of image files, to prompt crisis management through a continuous online detection service that can identify the source of leak 24/7, this client now possesses a robust arsenal to effectively combat leaks and respond swiftly.

How we worked together
Fans' eagerness to seek early-stage information and share it within their community becomes problematic when leaks of visual assets occur. Beyond spoiling the element of surprise, it often forces to rearrange the promotional schedule, the quality of communication from fans showcasing leaked content is poor, leaked information can be outdated or inaccurate, and it damages relations with partners involved in content creation.
Sensitive content had to be tagged with an invisible identifier as a precautionary measure to detect where the leak's source. The service had to cover the whole workflow from the very beginning of the content creation process, with the marking of visual files, to prompt crisis management through a continuous online detection service that can identify the source of the leak 24/7.
