Use Cases for Content Owners, Advertisers and Publishers

Mediartis is an end-to-end voice casting stack that provides a great set of privacy-oriented features that protect dubbing & voiceover project stakeholders from privacy non-compliance risks. It offers the audiovisual industry’s first solution to manage voice personal data in compliance with the GDPR and to provide content owners with tools to verify the voice privacy compliance of their service providers’ projects.

Voice is a biometric personal data, protected by the GDPR and most worldwide data privacy legislations. Voice samples collected and shared during the casting phase pose critical privacy risks in dubbing & voiceover operations. Current industry best practices do not address privacy issues in production, or provide compliance benchmarks or controls, leaving content owners vulnerable to non-compliance risks.

Partner compliance transparency is critical as GDPR introduces the notion of co-responsibility, which means that a data breach at any step, including non-compliant resources used by external vendors, or their own vendors, puts content owners at reputation and financial risks of fines up to 20M€ or 4% of global revenue.

Mediartis understands the privacy risks and challenges associated with voice casting resources and workflows as our company provides voice casting services to more than 800 organizations across the globe. Our expertise can be seen in how easy it is to use Mediartis to manage voice data privacy, internal resources & projects, and inbound vendor castings with project compliance visibility – no matter how many service providers contribute to projects.
