Ubiquitous access to high-speed Internet services has created opportunity for service providers and content owners, but also new challenges to protect content from piracy, especially as the industry pushes onto the open, unmanaged Internet
End-customers – service providers, broadcasters, post-production facilities, content producers – want streamlined digital workflows. They expect to perform transcoding and watermarking in one step when delivering content for screening, broadcast or multiscreen distribution.
NexGuard for Pre-Release content SDKs are available for audio and video watermarking. The solution enables imperceptible serial numbering of content copies for end-customers concerned with the risk of content piracy and willing to organize a deterrent against content theft.
NexGuard for Streaming (of content to multiple screens) is available as SDKs for video watermarking. The integration in transcoders or encoders enables the preprocessing of imperceptible marks for downstream identification on a per-user basis upon streaming in OTT, cable or IPTV services to any device.
These media protection solutions supplement encryption and DRM schemes, to secure video content beyond decryption.
End-customers – news agencies, marketing agencies, TV content rights owners – want streamlined digital workflows. They expect to perform transcoding and Teletrax encoding in one step when preparing content for broadcast.

End-customers (service providers, premium channels) and content rights owners (movie studios, sports leagues) need to tackle illicit redistribution of live and VoD content. They want session based identification when delivering content to 4K/UHD connected TVs, PCs, game consoles and tablets.
NexGuard for Streaming (of content to multiple screens) is available as SDKs for video watermarking. The integration in ABR multiscreen delivery platforms enables the final smart-embedding of imperceptible marks on a per-user basis upon streaming in OTT or cable services to any device.
For OTT services, streaming over the internet can be done through any CDN. For MSO’s multiscreen services, processing can be done in their own edge servers. Beneficiaries range from pay-TV services with exclusive live sport events to VoD services with early release window or 4K/UHD quality.
These media protection solutions supplement encryption and DRM schemes, to help protect video content beyond viewing.
The movie industry faces significant piracy arising from in-theatre recordings. Hollywood studios and movie theatre networks have agreed upon the DCI specification for digital cinema systems. Among content security features, digital watermarking is mandatory to enable both image forensic marking and audio forensic marking.
Civolution provides IP and an SDK for efficient integration of watermarking capabilities in mediablocks to enable DCI-compliant servers and projectors.
NexGuard for D-Cinema content is available to integrate audio and video watermarking. The solution performs imperceptible identification of theater screen and date-and-time of projection.
This media protection solution contributes to tackle piracy upon theatrical release of feature films.
End-customers – broadcasters, content producers, marketing agencies – want truly engaging Second Screen experiences in relation with their TV shows and commercials. They expect user interactions in the context of the primary content sequence being watched.
Second screen applications can be enhanced with automated content recognition and synchronization capabilities. For existing or upcoming TV shows and live sport events, creative teams can enrich the video content with extra synchronized information on the companion devices. The richer user experience on the tablet or smartphone works whatever the TV reception method – satellite, cable, or terrestrial – and even in case of time-shifted viewing from the user’s DVR.
Civolution’s SyncNow automated content recognition solutions allow creative teams to design companion applications for tablets that become TV content-aware.
These media interaction solutions enable richer interaction for TV programs and commercials.
