NexGuard - Digital Cinema
NEXGUARD - DIGITAL CINEMA
With their ability to capture a high quality copies, today’s (SD or even HD) consumer camcorders can be used for making illegal movie copies, which can be distributed shortly after the movie release. In-theater camcording is the biggest source of illegal distribution of newly distributed movies. With the current digital transition, a fast increasing number of cinemas around the world are upgrading from 35mm film prints to digital projection, making digital tracing of illegal distribution now possible.
NexGuard - Digital Cinema offers unique image and audio forensic marking, enabling illegal copies found, to be traced back to the theatre where the camcording occurred. NexGuard - Digital Cinema is fully compliant with the specifications from the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI), a joint venture of the major film studios, which made forensic marking of digital movies - including both image and sound – a mandatory requirement. Provided as an integral component of the Digital Cinema server system, NexGuard - Digital Cinema offers great advantages. The forensic mark is added to the content upon projection and includes a location identifier and a time stamp.
