CopySafe Video 7.0 Released for Professional Video Publishers

GYMPIE, Australia -- ArtistScope, a leading developer of copy protection for more than 20 years, has released a new version of CopySafe Video Protection. This new version is especially designed for professional video publishers and includes desirable features that enable them to distribute the highest quality video with the most effective protection from all avenues of piracy and exploit. In essence, it protects their livelihood.

Enhancements include a new video encryption algorithm that increases the file size after encryption by no more than a few KB, even on extremely large files. No compression is used to achieve that, so there is absolutely no loss of quality. When compared to the original, nothing is changed. With this new encryption algorithm, decryption by the client is almost immediate and consumes no computer resources, enabling authors to distribute video files of one GB and more.

Another unique feature of CopySafe Video Protection is that it can be viewed from different sources - desktops and online from web pages. In fact, there's no other solution that can effectively display copy-protected video on web pages. Typically, viewing encrypted video online requires that the file complete downloading before it can be decrypted for viewing. CopySafe Video Protection has special buffering so huge video files can start playing online almost immediately.

While CopySafe Video is impossible to screen record when played on a desktop and online, optional watermarking is included to prevent the recording of screens using video recording cameras. When DRM is applied, the user's name, account number and date can be displayed on the video, providing a powerful deterrent for copy and redistribution. When displayed from a website, the watermark will show the same user details as if logged on, otherwise their IP address and date will be displayed.

Publishers can distribute CopySafe Video with embedded protection via shared passwords, or they can distribute with DRM that locks each user's access to the video to their computer. This makes it impossible to share the video, even when sharing passwords.

"CopySafe DRM is most unique in that it can provide DRM for both online and offline viewing," says ArtistScope founder and CEO, William Kent. "For offline, the user can collect DRM tokens after logging into their DRM account. Online DRM is a live, call-to-home validation request that gives publishers 'total control' over all aspects, with immediate effect on any changes made, even to video files already saved to the user's computer or still out in the wild on disk."

Publishers can also manage DRM from an online control panel that's provided with every CopySafe Video Encoder software license. Such DRM accounts are unlimited in the number of videos, subscribers and groups that can be managed and DRM accounts are free forever. Free support and upgrades are also included for life with the one-time purchase of US$295.

The CopySafe Video Encoder will encrypt single video files or in batches by folder selection, catering to all types of video file formats including ASF, AVI, MKV, MP4 and WMV.

CopySafe Video Protection requires a Windows computer; however, the encoder and player are supported on all versions of Windows including XP.

The bottom line: CopySafe solutions provides the most secure and robust media copy protection.

The Return of Broadway: Broadway Barter is Here to Make Your Post COVID-19 Reopening a Success!

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Broadway is back in 2021! Broadway Barter, celebrating 25 years of trading media for producer empty seats, announced that it is giving its support to Broadway by offering all theaters the opportunity to prepare, if not already done, with the state-of-the-art air filtration upgrade using Ultra Violet protection.

For more information on COVID-19 and UV protection, visit HealthLine and NPR. After all, it's the comfort and safety for all theatergoers that must be the priority. When they see the certification posted at each entrance and exit at our participating theaters, they will know this theater had their safety first.

In a press conference, NYC mayor Bill de Blasio said that he expects Broadway and off-Broadway shows to reopen by September and that he plans to facilitate that target date. Every theater must meet the safety requirements, per de Blasio's office, which will be inspecting them all prior to reopening. "Broadway needs to come back, and we will move heaven and Earth to bring Broadway back," he said. The dates and the percentage of audience attendance will be announced officially by The Broadway League shortly once more decisions are made by de Blasio in the upcoming months.

Broadway Barter also recognizes the affects COVID-19 has had across many industries; especially health care workers and youth in the arts. Broadway Barter is pledging 5% of all sales to give back to local health care workers and underserved children in the arts by providing them tickets to Broadway shows. Everyone should be able to enjoy the joys of Broadway and they are proud to be able to serve the community by providing that opportunity.

If you'd like to schedule a complimentary site inspection with your proposal, contact Broadway Barter and cover 1/2 the cost by bartering empty seats. Broadway Barter is also promoting participating shows on major radio, TV news, and in its new, upcoming Broadway section in Hemispheres Magazine on all

United Airlines flights. Over 4 million travelers will have the chance to see what's coming on Broadway. June, July, August, and September sponsorships are available for both TV spots and Hemispheres placement, with only one show featured each month on the news.

Please go to the Broadway Barter website to learn more about what they can do for your re-opening and to view the safety and media kit. If you wish to participate or get more information, call today at +1-844-922-3959.

More information:

About Broadway Barter:

Formed in 1996, Broadway Barter has developed a successful formula of filling unsold theater seats for increased revenue to the producers and at the same time generating media exposure. A theater seat has no value once a show's over. 80-90% of an average show is sold. Broadway Barter turns that remaining 10-20% of unused seats into valuable advertising exposure.

Broadway Barter's program is based on combining a Trade/Cash blend that delivers your target audience. Its unique and creative formula has made it one of the most competitive media sources in the market today.

Primary Business:

* Media Promotion and Media Placement for Broadway Shows

* Off-Broadway Shows

* Lincoln Center Productions

* Out-of-Town Performances (Shows on the Road)

When Walt Disney wanted to promote their musical, "Beauty & the Beast," they turned to barter as a means to offset a good deal of advertising expenses. They used a blend of show tickets and cash to achieve their goal. Previously unsold tickets, which were worthless if not filled, were used to generate print ads in inflight magazines, thus optimizing revenue and performance attendance.

Sussman-Hoyt PROductions’ Wildomar Movie Ranch Brings A Major Film Production to The Inland Empire

WILDOMAR, Calif. -- SAG Production Comes to Wildomar! Surprisingly, in the midst of a pandemic when most businesses are operating in limited capacities or closed altogether, Wildomar Movie Ranch continues to develop partnerships with film producers to bring projects to Wildomar and Lake Elsinore areas of the Inland Empire.

Last month, as a result of Sussman-Hoyt PROductions' efforts, Wildomar and Lake Elsinore became hosts to a tightly controlled COVID-compliant, closed set SAG Hollywood film production. A recognized, award-winning-actress-turned-director, Jamie Anderson, was up against a tight deadline and had exhausted her search for ideal properties near LA to film her sitcom pilot. Along came Wildomar Movie Ranch!

Three properties offered by Sussman and Hoyt created the variety, immediacy, affordability, and privacy needed to complete the large 40-member cast/crew production and prepare it for anxious investors eager to fund the pilot in hopes of creating enough buzz to launch the series.

All this would not have been possible without the accommodating services provided by Sussman-Hoyt PROductions and their Wildomar Movie Ranch.

"They (Sussman and Hoyt) were so lovely and willing to do what it took to just make it work," Anderson said.

The Wildomar Movie Ranch locations were ideal and found in the nick of time plus Sussman and Hoyt offered local resources and amenities for the cast and crew from local restaurants, hotels, and other vendors so the production could continue as planned, on schedule, and under budget.

"We were pleased to have done our part to bring revenue to our local businesses, especially those hurt hard financially this year," said Hoyt.

Sussman passionately added, "And we do whatever it takes to prove that southwest Riverside county has the right stuff for the entertainment industry to produce its next projects right here. Wildomar Movie Ranch has other unique properties like caves, rivers, ranches and historic structures for filming. The region has the affordability and qualified talent. Plus, we have the added benefit of a professionally engineered sound studio and green screen room to create a world of possibilities. What else do you need?"

Endorsed by the local communities and the Riverside Film Commission, Sussman-Hoyt PROductions continues to build upon their one-stop-shop business model and is staking their reputation on being southwest Riverside County's premier, client-based, world-class service entertainment production company - whether small indie film productions, music producers, or as proven last month, top level SAG productions.

From feature and short films, documentaries, podcasts, commercials, vignettes, event commemorations, to set designs and full-scale music productions, recordings, arrangements, mixing, and compositions, Sussman-Hoyt PROductions, Inc. delivers a client-centric approach and multiple service options to accommodate most sized projects and budgets.

About Wildomar Movie Ranch:

Wildomar Movie Ranch is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sussman-Hoyt Productions, Inc. (S-Hp), a California based corporation founded by CK Sussman (CEO) and LE Hoyt (COO) - two seasoned professionals with back lot film studio and LA music studio work to their credits. Both Sussman and Hoyt are experienced musicians and industry professionals, with independent proven track records as successful business owners and entrepreneurs.

More information about the recent film production is available in the featured Valley News story by reporter Jeremiah Tatola (9-3-2020):

Companies and Film Producers in L.A. Are Struggling to Find A Solution to Social Distancing

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Good Heart Catering in Los Angeles is excited to welcome back those slowly returning to offices and film productions in Los Angeles. In preparation for the return of Southern California's workforce, Good Heart Catering has been working with select clients on a new menu to help solve the problem of keeping to social distancing guidelines while still energizing staff with nutritious meals.

Founder Jon Toktas comments that, "Since the beginning of the shutdown, we've been getting requests from large and small employers for solutions that can help keep their employees well-fed and safe.

"The primary concern by management is having employees leaving the building multiple times a day and coming back with an increased chance of exposure.

"On film production sets, the concern is over shared catering stations, which have been a mainstay of productions in the past.

"In the near term, we recommend our individually packaged meals to avoid the crowded catering buffet lines during shoots."

Good Heart Catering's all-in-one solution of delivering boxed breakfast or lunch, tailored individually to each employee, solves the problem.

By cooking and delivering meals using in house staff in a central kitchen, they can limit the number of people involved in the preparation and delivery of the meals. Reducing the number of touchpoints and exposure.

For organizations with in-house cafeterias that have been closed and non-returning due to cost concerns, Good Heart Catering's individually packaged meals can be a single vendor replacement to take advantage of the new menu for daily service.

Delicious, healthy, and individually packed meals include new items such as crusted salmon and spinach, anca beef and asparagus, falafel rabble, and more. These new menu items are in addition to their existing menu of boxed sandwich lunches and individually boxed breakfast offerings.

The full line of new items can be viewed on their website:
