Collaboration ensures secure implementation of watermarking in open connected devices
Cheseaux, Switzerland, Phoenix, AZ and Aix en Provence, France – Sept 11, 2018 – NAGRA, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company and the world's leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, today announced that its NexGuard QuickMark watermarking solution for open devices has been integrated with Inside Secure’s Content Protection Client, allowing live TV streaming services to benefit from enhanced content protection in a secure and robust implementation.
As a dynamic client-side watermarking solution, QuickMark does not require any modifications to the streaming services’ encoding, DRM or CDN systems. QuickMark detection is very fast, allowing near real-time identification of the subscriber that is the source of the piracy and the appropriate action to stop the abuse.
“We are excited to announce the integration of NexGuard watermarking with Inside Secure’s downloadable security technology for open devices” said Harrie Tholen, VP of Sales, NAGRA Anti-Piracy & NexGuard. The combined solution ensures a secure and robust implementation of watermarking, which has grown into an indispensable tool to fight illicit redistribution of content, both for sports and live premium entertainment channels.
“Protecting content owners’ ever higher investments in rights such as for live sports is critically important for our customers,” said Simon Wilson Blake, COO of Inside Secure. “Our Content Protection Client, with the company’s patented Core(tm) technology, ensures that watermark payload insertion cannot be circumvented or removed, providing customers with solid protection against illicit activities”.
