Forensic investigation on NexGuard watermarking is fully automated.
Forensic watermarking for premium VOD
As premium VOD content is released both earlier and in higher-resolution formats such as UHD/4K, content owners and MVPDs are coming to see the need for more effective controls against illicit redistribution. Session-based forensic watermarking is the single most effective tool for adding traceability to valuable content. NexGuard pay-TV STB and OTT streaming technologies offer video watermarking protection for early release and UHD/HDR VOD movies as they are distributed through cable, satellite, IPTV and OTT streaming services.
Watermarking for OTT clients
The key to combatting piracy for live sport events is to be able to identify its source and shut it down quickly. Subscriber-level watermarking fits the bill, but for streaming services, it needs to be implemented in an architecture that does not impact the critical components already tuned for peak demand associated with major sporting events. QuickMark is a new forensic watermarking approach that provisions a unique inseparable identifier in each client’s output. The solution provides a simple, lightweight integration for secure OTT players to protect the insertion of the watermark on the client device.
Secure your pre-release workflows
Any leak occurring on pre-release or pre-aired content has a very high impact on revenues and marketing activities. To prevent this situation, studios, content owners, post-houses and online video platforms individually watermark the pre-release files throughout their content post-production, promotion and distribution workflows, thus allowing the tracing of any leak back to the specific department or third party that received the file. This traceability provides a strong deterrent against leaking.
