High-speed internet changed the rules of piracy. Pirates can distribute high quality content with millions of users instantaneously, giving birth to a fast growing and borderless illegal re-streaming economy. Combined with internet monitoring, NexGuard forensic watermarking is addressing this new security breach and protects the PayTV industry.
NexGuard PayTV embeds an imperceptible and non-removable unique identifier in the video signal received by the set-top box either by broadcast or broadband.
Legitimate use of the content is not limited, but consumers who abuse content by illegal distribution can be tracked and traced, either live or off-line if the content is recorded on a cyber-locker.
