Fortium secures discs, files with Civolution's NexGuard watermarking

Fortium Technologies, a leading provider of content protection solutions for the film, entertainment and broadcast industries, has integrated Civolution’s NexGuard watermarking technology into its PIN-Play protection solution for files and discs for its studio customers.

Civolution’s forensic video watermarking solution creates an indelible digital stamp embedded in the content, imperceptible to the human eye, making each piece of content unique. The watermarks allow content owners to identify the source of any potential illicit copies of their materials and offer a deterrent against content theft as well as material for forensic analysis should piracy occur.

Also, NexGuard – Pre-Release Screener, already widely used with Fortium’s Patronus anti-rip copy protection for large volume duplication of DVD screeners, can now also include the company’s PIN-Play technology on a per-copy basis.

This technology is seen as especially useful during the Awards’ season where numerous screeners are sent to judges.

‘’The content industry requires the highest possible level of protection for their content and Civolution’s watermarking solutions allow us to provide that crucial extra layer of security,’’ said Mathew Gilliat-Smith, CEO of Fortium Technologies.

“Piracy is still savaging the media industry. It is essential that we all work together to ensure sustainable media business and creativity. We are pleased to work with Fortium to push forward with effective content protection solutions,” said Andy Nobbs, Chief Commercial Officer, Civolution.
