Thomson to introduce forensic marking solution for STBs

Thomson will unveil its NexGuard forensic marking solution for set-top boxes (STBs) at NAB2007.

A streamlined open architecture solution, the NexGuard video watermarking technology works with standard- and next-generation compression codecs including MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) and VC-1.

NexGuard for STBs has been integrated into the STx7100 family of system-on-chip (SoC), manufactured by STMicroelectronics. It will be available to all STB companies, conditional access system (CAS) vendors and video-on-demand (VOD) and push-VOD operators this summer.

NexGuard's robust and invisible set-top box watermark deters illegal copying and distribution of all forms of broadcast content delivered via IPTV, satellite, cable or traditional broadcast and viewed with digital STBs.

“Will there be a shift from coax to fibre? Or a mixture between the two which will require hybrid solutions to be implemented?”
