Enhance user satisfaction with great experiences

As a TV set manufacturer, you need to comply with the content protection standards designated by premium content right owners. Movie studios are now offering their content in super-high resolution and require the implementation of forensic watermarking in the device. Approved by studios, Civolution's NexGuard complies with these new requirements and is available for TV integration.

NexGuard

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, Civolution 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 display device 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.

Features and Benefits

  • Imperceptible video watermark uniquely identifying the content displayed by the TV, providing a powerful deterrence against piracy.
  • Robust watermark, detectable after camcorder capture and severe quality degradation (re-compression, …).
  • Compatible with encryption and other content protection technologies.
  • Blind and fully automated watermark detection.
