“NAGRA provides the most efficient, flexible, and powerful solution that seamlessly integrates into mediaspot®, our Digital Media Platform. This ensures that our customers’ valuable assets remain secure from production to distribution, with no impact on quality or lead time.” said Sébastien Arlaud, Director of Business and Innovation at VDM. “Available as a subscription-based option of mediaspot®, forensic watermarking capabilities are configurable and can be activated for one title, for the full catalog, for content that meets a particular criteria or just automatically applied - customers are free to decide.”

The solution allows for quick and efficient identification of any source of content leaks, providing content owners with key intelligence for anti-piracy actions, while acting as a strong deterrent against illegal copying or distribution.
