Post-Production and Distribution Workflows
NexGuard File Embedder
The NexGuard File Embedder embeds forensic watermarks into video at any point in a post-production workflow. It is speed optimised for the key mezzanine file formats and easily interfaces with third party workflow management or media asset management (MAM) applications. It is administered by the NexGuard Manager and supported by the NexGuard Detection Service.
NexGuard Transcoder Plugin
The NexGuard Transcoder Plugin adds the ability to embed forensic audio and video watermarks to a wide range of transcoders used within post-production and distribution workflows. It supports any transcoder input format, output format, video resolution and frame rate. It also supports multi-layer watermarking, embedded at different points in the post-production workflow. It is administered by the NexGuard Manager and supported by the NexGuard Detection Service.
The NexGuard Manager provides content providers with a centralised database for all their NexGuard watermarking metadata and identifiers. It simplifies the administration and tracking of forensic watermarking across pre-release and distribution workflows.
NexGuard Detection Service
The NexGuard Detection Service is a cloud-based forensic watermark detection service provided by NAGRA. It is fast, highly scalable and fully automated, meeting the needs of users who require occasional or continuous live detection in conjunction with anti-piracy services.
