Event: The Technologies of Digital Watermarking
Date: September 7, 1999
Time: 7:00 pm

The Technologies of Digital Watermarking Time: Tuesday, September 7th, 1999 at 7:00 pm Place: The Musician's Institute 1655 McCadden Place in Hollywood (one block east of Highland & Hollywood Blvd.) Fresh from your Labor Day weekend, please join us for an in-depth look at the new technologies which may represent the future of music tracking, reporting and copyright protection.

The decision is ours, as composers and songwriters, as to whether to encode our master recordings. But how? And with what system? And with what encoded content? Will watermarking effect the sound quality? What are the benefits?

This cutting-edge seminar will feature demonstrations from the top audio-enabling companies, including ARIS/Solana, Blue Spike and Cognicity. Learn more about the Secure Digital Music Initiative (SDMI) and how their endorsements and policies will shape music performance tracking capabilities-- now and in the future.

The SCL is also pleased to welcome executives from ASCAP, BMI and SESAC, each of whom will address the potential capabilities of this technology with regard to the performing right.

Join us for a must-see glimpse into the future of music usage reporting and protection in:
