Cinavia Desktop Verifier

Quality-Control for Professional Workflows
Cinavia is a technology platform that employs Verance's proprietary audio watermarking techniques to enable the communication and enactment of use policies for audiovisual content across a broad range of distribution channels and devices.

The Cinavia Desktop Verifier is a standalone software application that lets you detect and display Cinavia watermark payloads in real-time from input audio streams using a standard desktop computer. The program analyzes audio input as a real-time stream to the line-in port or other audio input devices that your computer supports.

The Cinavia Desktop Verifier gives professional service providers a convenient and reliable method to confirm the presence of Cinavia watermarks in a particular piece of content. Use it on any Macintosh or Windows computer where verification of the Cinavia watermark is desired.


  • A simple calibration process used to calculate the threshold decibel value ensuring the likelihood of detections
  • “Low” and “High” level indicators to signify when audio input levels are not optimal for watermark detections
  • Color-coded on-screen display of detected watermark states
  • Audible alert tones indicate Cinavia watermark detection, absence of watermark and audio level too low/too high; facilitates “eyes-free” operation
  • Machine readable logging capabilities support automation efforts
  • Allows the user to insert comments into the log file during the verification process
