NexGuard watermarking solution integrated with Amazon Cloudfront CDN

NAGRA, a Kudelski Group company and independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, has announced that its NexGuard watermarking solution has been integrated with the Amazon Cloudfront Content Delivery Network (CDN).

The combined solution was commercially deployed by a major Hollywood studio, enabling the content owner to stream its video content to viewers across the world in an efficient and highly scalable way, while securing robust security and traceability of its premium assets.

“We’re excited to expand our usage of Amazon Web Services and provide the added layer of security and traceability now required by content owners for the protection of premium content in pre-release and direct-to-consumer scenarios,” said Harrie Tholen, VP Sales, NAGRA Anti-Piracy & NexGuard. “With Cloudfront and its Lambda Edge component, NAGRA is able to offer session-based forensic watermarking to content owners in a highly scalable and secure way. Using secure processing at the edge, we can now service millions of users across the world with a reduction in end-to-end latency.”

The solution enables session-based watermarking when streaming content to any device (PC, tablet, connected TV, game console, etc.) without requiring any change in the player applications. NexGuard watermarking leverages streaming technology to create a unique watermark for each session on live and file-based video streams, empowering service providers to fight illegal redistribution of their content. It supports Apple HLS, MPEG-DASH and all popular DRM methods, including NAGRA PRM. NAGRA also offers anti-piracy monitoring and cloud-based watermark detection services to identify and stop pirate sources in near real-time.

Gladys West - Pioneer of GPS
GPS and GNSS positioning technology is such an integral part of our lives today that we rarely stop to think about where it all came from. When we do, we usually picture men in white shirts and dark glasses hunched over calculators and slide rules. In fact, one of the early pioneers behind GPS and GNSS technology was Gladys West - a black woman.
