What we do

  • Easy and secure digital distribution
  • Content protection and watermarking
  • Rapid and efficient infringement detection

Custos Media Technologies develops cutting edge digital content distribution solutions that allows content owners to distribute, manage, and protect sensitive media. The innovative core technology gives a new level of protection to the owners of any project – whether a large ebook publisher, a small indie film producer, or anything in between. Anywhere sensitive digital media moves, Custos can protect it.

The company was spun out of the prestigious New Media research lab at Stellenbosch University, South Africa. The underlying technology was invented by an experienced cross-disciplinary team specialising in signal processing, distribution systems, cryptocurrency, machine learning, and media and behavioral economics.

Since 2013 the growing team has developed the product and business to service film and ebook customers on three continents.
