Nagra has announced that its NexGuard forensic watermarking is now integrated into Sony’s Ci Media Cloud, an industry-leading media management and collaboration platform, to enhance the security of pre-release content during review and collaboration in production and post-production workflows.
"Our integration with the Nagra NexGuard solution allows customers to seamlessly expand their usage of Ci into their most sensitive workflows which demand a heightened level of security," said David Rosen, vice president of cloud applications and services, Sony Electronics.
Serving creative professionals and organizations around the globe, Ci is a cloud-based solution that allows users to capture, backup, review, transform and run streamlined media workflows without moving or copying content. With functionalities that save users time and money, the new integration with Nagra NexGuard Forensic Watermarking provides enhanced security and collaboration, while simple web and mobile apps enable additional power and accessibility.
Nagra NexGuard forensic watermarking uniquely watermarks content delivered using Ci’s MediaBox share-link tool. Unlike visual watermarking also available in Ci, forensically watermarked files can be played back without any visual obstruction. Natively integrated with Ci, NexGuard Watermarking safeguards shots, clips, and files from leaks before, during, and after production.
"Nagra is excited to help studios and original content owners prevent the negative consequences of leaks that can occur throughout movie production and post-production and in review and collaboration workflows," said Ken Gerstein, vice president of sales, Nagra Anti-Piracy & NexGuard. "We're proud that our over 20 years of experience provide value and the best content protection available to respected market leaders like Sony’s Ci."
