Civolution’s Harrie Tholen Presents Paper “Watermarking Techniques In Content Protection” At The Associated China Digital Cinema Forum
Beijing, People’s Republic of China, August 22 2011 – Civolution, the leading provider of technology and solutions for identifying, managing and monetizing media content, today announced that it will showcase its NexGuard forensic watermarking portfolio at the BIRTV exhibition from August 24-27 in Beijing, in partnership with the China Film Equipment Corporation. Civolution’s NexGuard applications are flexible, scalable watermarking solutions which make the distribution of video and audio content traceable and secure.
Visitors to BIRTV will be able to see Harrie Tholen, Asia Pacific General Manager for Civolution, discussing Civolution’s watermarking techniques for the protection of film content in Pre-release, Digital Cinema and E-cinema environments at the Associated China Digital Cinema Forum, on August 26.
“The Chinese and Asia Pacific film industry is rapidly expanding and experiencing increases in film production budgets and growth in box office takings,” said Harrie Tholen, General Manager at Civolution APAC. “There is a great opportunity for film distribution through Video on Demand via broadband networks in this region. This however does increase the potential for piracy as the utilisation of digital technology in production, post-production and distribution means that there are high quality digital copies of the content available throughout the production chain. Civolution’s forensic watermarking application resists piracy and allows film production and distribution companies to deter theft and protect their valuable content.”
Civolution’s NexGuard watermarking applications for pre-release, digital cinema and payTV environment are the most widely deployed on a global scale. NexGuard video watermarking solutions provide a strong deterrent against piracy, helping to protect content owners’ media assets. NexGuard solutions add imperceptible watermarks – on a per content copy basis – which are resilient to analog/digital conversion, format change, camcorder copying, recompression and various other forms of content manipulation.
