NexGuard forensic watermarking

Publish » Content Protection » Content Protection & Encryption » CAS, encryption, DRM »

Commercial piracy is a growing problem for both content owners, pay-TV operators and direct-to-consumer services,  especially in the areas of premium VOD and live sports, where pirated content can be easily promoted, distributed and illicitly streamed over the internet. Content may be pirated at any point in its lifecycle, including during production, post-production, promotion, during contribution/distribution and at the point of consumption. In this context, the ability to mark content and determine the source of a content leak quickly and efficiently is key to take effective anti-piracy action. NexGuard forensic watermarking solutions support traditional pay-TV and OTT services, covering linear broadcast TV, live streaming and VOD. Watermarks can be embedded on a session basis on the server-side using NexGuard Streaming or on a subscriber basis in the client device (pay-TV set-top box or OTT streaming device), using either NexGuard PayTV or NexGuard QuickMark, providing pay-TV operators and direct-to-consumer services with the right tools to deter and combat piracy.
