A unique feature of this project is the use of Digimarc Discover® technology.

Readers may absorb the text, admire the imagery, and then point their phone at the page and watch film footage of famous Derby moments. Mars Premedia is proud to have pioneered this unique use of Digimarc technology, a first for a print project of this kind.
