NexGuard and Marvell Form Collaboration

NexGuard has announced the integration of its forensic watermarking into the secure video path of Marvell’s family of Armada UHD set-top box solutions for service providers.

This collaboration supports the latest MovieLabs Enhanced Content protection requirements and safeguards high-value content with forensic watermarking in addition to conditional access (CA) and digital rights management (DRM) systems.

NexGuard forensic watermarking enables Pay TV operators using Marvell’s multimedia solutions to embed a unique identifier into each piece of content, providing the operators with an effective way to identify weakened links in their content distribution chain. The ability to trace illicit redistribution to the original source of piracy makes it an effective tool for content owners and distributors to fight illegal content sharing. The technology is imperceptible for all types of content, including HDR, and remains engrained regardless of transcoding, resizing, downscaling or other alterations throughout the production lifecycle.
