An audio watermark is a unique electronic identifier embedded in an audio signal, typically used to identify ownership of copyright. Similar to a watermark on a photograph, it is the process of embedding information into a signal in a way that is difficult to remove.
When data subjets (voice actors) access their personal data on Mediartis, they can listen to their voice recordings a company possesses. These recordings are audio-watermarked to protect companies’ assets. Audio watermarking of these recordings does not, in any way, deform the audio recordings in company voice databases. Samples shared with clients and collaborators and partners in castings are not audio-watermarked.
