NexGuard forensic watermarking is now available with AWS Elemental MediaConvert

Posted on: Jun 19, 2020

AWS Elemental MediaConvert now supports forensic watermarking using NexGuard. This feature enables you to watermark content for both mezzanine and OTT streaming contexts in order to enable content leak forensic workflows. You have access to an added layer of security and traceability for valuable pre-release and early release content, and a simple way for watermarking during video transcoding and OTT content preparation. NexGuard forensic watermarking in MediaConvert for pre-release content, including the recently announced NexGuard ClipMark for short form content as well as NexGuard Streaming for on-demand OTT content, enables full watermark automation when processing in AWS.

NexGuard watermarking is priced as an add-on feature for MediaConvert on-demand jobs and is available at no extra charge for jobs running in reserved transcoding slots. For details on pricing, please visit the pricing page for MediaConvert. NAGRA can provide you with a NexGuard license key that can be applied in the pre-processor section of your job configuration.

With MediaConvert, audio and video providers can easily and reliably transcode on-demand content for broadcast and multiscreen delivery. MediaConvert functions independently or as part of AWS Media Services, a family of services that form the foundation of cloud-based workflows and offer the capabilities needed to transport, transcode, package, and deliver audio and video.
