Ubiquitous access to high-speed broadband is transforming the global pay-TV environment, and brings new challenges in protecting premium content from piracy:
Distributors of premium sport channels now have to contend with illicit live re-streaming on the internet; Operators offering Early Release, UHD, HDR movies need to meet the content-owners’ requirements for enhanced content protection.
NexGuard, a Civolution Company, is the leader in forensic watermarking technology for anti-piracy. “Our technology enables broadcast and OTT operators to comply with rights owners’ most stringent security requirements, which is why our solutions are used worldwide every day to protect content owners and operators against illicit redistribution of high value content – including early-release window movies offered via EST and VOD, UHD and HDR content, and premium live sports.”
Already integrated into more than 20 million set top boxes, the Emmy award-winning solution is now deploying to multiscreen OTT services. Forensic watermarking extends content protection beyond conditional access and DRM by enabling anti-piracy teams to trace illegal re-streaming or file sharing right back to the perpetrator and cut off the source.
