September 19 Meeting: Digital Watermarking

How do they encode your digital audio and video to identify the source without making it audibly or visually apparent?

Join us Wednesday, September 19th at 12 noon at iHeartMedia, 9660 Granite Ridge Drive, San Diego. We’ll serve a free lunch, followed by the presentation.
