Thomson will unveil new products, technologies and research at NAB2007 across the entire supply chain, including security solutions and video watermarking technologies.
Thomson's NexGuard for set-top boxes is a video watermarking technology featuring a streamlined "open architecture" that works with standard and next-generation compression codecs: MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) and VC-1. NexGuard for STBs has been integrated into the STx7100 family of system-on-chips, manufactured by semiconductor supplier STMicroelectronics, and will be available to all STB companies.
The company is also demonstrating NexGuard for Microsoft Windows Media Video 9, a software package for deterring piracy of WMV 9 or VC-1 main profile-formatted files.
Thomson is also showing some of its advanced research for the entire digital workflow. Highlights include the DiscPack, a prototype for high-end, professional electronic camera recording systems with a highly efficient portable storage solution; the Distributed I/O Scheduler, which enables simultaneous flow of multiple data streams to and from content storage and processing devices; and Digital Media Archiving with Mezzanine Compression--the "proof of concept" for a powerful, visually lossless compression solution for file-based workflows.
Thomson will be in booths N713 and N902.
