HOLLYWOOD, CA - Thomson (Euronext Paris: 18453; NYSE: TMS), through its Technicolor Business Group, today announced that it is now offering both digital cinema image detection watermarking solutions available on the market, Cinefence and Nexguard, both offered by Civolution.
"By providing our customers with the only two digital cinema watermarking detection services available on the market, we enable them with full flexibility when it comes to protection and analysis of digital cinema pirated material," said Curt Behlmer, head of Technicolor's digital cinema business.
Digital watermarking solutions make video content easily and precisely identifiable by embedding specific data such as the rights holder's or recipient's ID or user number. The image watermark, totally invisible to the naked eye may be embedded at various points in the content preparation and distribution process.
In addition to digital cinema watermarking, Technicolor also offers forensic image watermarking embedding and detection services for video and film prints, as well as audio watermarking across Dolby SR, SRD and DTS formats, and file and tape based watermarking.
