NAGRA’s NexGuard forensic watermarking and detection services have completed the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR), and will utilise AWS resources to deliver marketing leading forensic watermarking for audio and video content, said the companies.
NAGRA NexGuard running on AWS facilitates the ability to scale to millions of users worldwide. The solution is compatible with AWS Media Services for live signal transport, encoding, and packaging using AWS MediaLive and AWS MediaPackage to deliver watermarked content in all HLS/DASH renditions with no latency.
The AWS FTR enables AWS Partners like NAGRA to identify and remediate risks in their products and solutions, providing specific guidelines to adopt a subset of AWS best practices to reduce risks around security, reliability, and operational excellence, as defined by the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
Following FTR guidelines, NAGRA can review projects against FTR requirements to ensure best practices and client experiences when using AWS technology.
Sebastian Kramer, SVP Product Management & Business Development, NAGRA, said, “The deepening of our relationship with AWS recognises the widespread adoption of their technology by our customers and our ambition to make our solutions as accessible as possible.
“NAGRA NexGuard forensic watermarking plays a vital role for video service providers and content owners in the fight against illicit content redistribution.”
NAGRA NexGuard forensic watermarking enables user-specific forensic watermarks wherever video is consumed. The server-side forensic watermarking technology increases the security of streaming offerings through unique watermarks for each stream of content without requiring any changes on the playout for any device. This approach helps keep piracy at bay across the platform and safeguards content against unauthorised use by enabling the ability to track down stolen content.
