Hybrik Announces Support for NAGRA NexGuard Forensic Watermarking

  • Allows the identification and tracking of high-value media assets

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA — Hybrik, Inc. today announced its cloud-based media processing now supports the embedding of NAGRA NexGuard forensic watermarks into on-demand content. NAGRA, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company is the world’s leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions. NAGRA NexGuard forensic watermarking protects high value content against illicit redistribution throughout its entire lifecycle, which encompasses Pre-Release, Digital Cinema, B2B and B2C distribution.

“Performing watermarking in the cloud allows for a major increase in scale for our clients,” said Jean-Philippe Plantevin, NAGRA Vice President Anti-Piracy. “Utilizing cloud processing removes the on-premise bottleneck and allows for watermarking to be applied to a far greater percentage of media assets.”
