Forensic Watermarking

Forensic watermarking is the imperceptible embedding of information directly within video or audio content that identifies the source or intended recipient of the content. Forensic watermarks make each genuine copy of the content unique and can be extracted from pirated content to trace leaks back to the source and take anti-piracy action. NexGuard forensic watermarking can protect content owners’ and pay-TV operators’ investment in content, helping to deter and combat piracy.
