European streaming service Wuaki.tv is rolling out session-based watermarking for Ultra HD movies, thanks to tech vendor Civolution’s content protection technology NexGuard.
This increased security enables Wuaki.tv to offer high quality content including Ultra HD movies in France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom, as well as future-proof its offering ahead of expansion into new markets.
“While acquiring high quality content, it’s become clear to us that session-based watermarking is increasingly mandatory, particularly for Ultra HD/4K content,” explains Jordi Miró, CTO of Wuaki.tv. “By integrating Civolution’s forensic watermarking solution, we comply with the latest Hollywood requirements for content protection so that we can bring the best possible cinematic experience into the home.”
Wuaki.tv has recently launched its Ultra HD offering of Hollywood blockbusters on LG TV sets in Germany and France.
