SeaChange International announced an integration and distribution partnership with Civolution to offer forensic watermarking for premium video-on-demand content.

The partnership is said to be critical for cable operators looking to launch Home Premiere services, as mandated by Hollywood studios to grant access to content.

SeaChange will use Civolution’s NexGuard forensic watermarking solutions that are already in operations worldwide in digital cinema systems, hospitality markets and direct to home (DTH) satellite operations.

The technology is proven and meets the studios requirements for Home Premiere content, released ahead of DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The combined solution will help SeaChange customers worldwide to launch attractive new services in their existing or new VOD platforms for cable and TV.

The NexGuard application for cable VOD includes a content pre-processing phase to ensure ease of integration, scalability and utmost performance upon streaming in MPEG-2 or H.264. To offer the most efficient operations upon content ingest this pre-processing is available either as a plug-in for transcoders or as a transparent standalone application able to pre-process content already prepared for cable distribution.

The solution is designed to be compatible with any VOD streaming server and all CAS and DRM encryption systems. The watermark embedding itself is performed on a per-VOD transaction basis upon streaming the content to the viewer by SeaChange or third party VOD servers.
