Arkena has integrated NexGuard Pre-Release in its Cloud4Media content management platform.
Developed by NexGuard (a Civolution company), NexGuard Pre-Release is a watermarking solution for the digital forensic tracking of video assets.
Cloud4Media is a global solution for storage, transcoding and secure content delivery, powered by Harmony, a workflow orchestration engine dedicated to media.
NexGuard Pre-Release solution is based on File Embedder and Manager. The NexGuard File Embedder adds a unique, imperceptible video watermark to each copy of the content. This serial numbering process is fully automated and scalable – all driven by the central NexGuard Manager server and its secure database of watermarking data.
The watermarking technology adds imperceptible digital markers to video signals and assets before or after transcoding. These unique and un-erasable labels enable the tracking of an asset, so that any leaks can be tracked back to their source.
“NexGuard Pre-Release is a market-leading watermarking solution that will enable our customers to benefit from a preventative measure against the illegal redistribution of media and additional protection throughout the content production value-chain,” says François Lignon, VP Product Content Management at Arkena. “NexGuard Pre-Release is able to process all the major file formats, including ProRes and IMF, two of the leading mezzanine formats within the industry.”.
