SeaChange International and Civolution are collaborating to offer NexGuard forensic watermarking for premium video-on-demand (VOD) including "Home Premiere" movies that Hollywood studios grant early access to.

The NexGuard application for cable VOD includes a content pre-processing phase to ensure ease of integration, scalability and 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.

The watermark detection from suspected pirate video samples, available through Civolution’s web-based automated NexGuard – Detection Service, helps content rights owners to identify the source of piracy with a fast turn-around in case of content theft. Civolution VOD watermarks can be automatically detected without the need for original content.
