Dr. Mehmet Celik is a principle scientist and the director of research at NexGuard Labs in Kudelski Group. After receiving his PhD from University of Rochester (2004), he joined Philips Research. He was part of the Content-Identification group which spun-off as Civolution in 2008. He led the research team at Civolution, where he helped develop renowned solutions based on watermarking and fingerprinting algorithms. Audience measurement solution based on audio watermarking was acquired by Kantar Media in 2014 and is now deployed in various countries. Broadcast monitoring and TV analytics solution based on video watermarking and audio/video fingerprinting was acquired by 4C-Insights in 2015 and is now tracking over 2100 channels in 76 countries. Forensic tracking solutions based on audio/video watermarking was acquired by Kudelski Group in 2016 and is now used by all major studios and deployed on over 100,000 movie screens. These solutions have been recognized by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences with Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards in 2016 and 2018. Dr. Celik is now focusing on challenges around forensic tracking of live sports & premium content when distributed via broadcast or over-the-top.
