On-the-fly Watermarking for Content Distribution
We have introduced the NexGuard File Delivery product to quickly generate multiple uniquely watermarked files from one source file.
The NexGuard File Delivery product is using a two-step process, creating first an intermediate version of the mezzanine file and then generating on-the-fly during file transfer a uniquely watermarked variant, drastically reducing the processing time of a one-to-many file delivery.
The NexGuard File Delivery product can be enabled in Aspera Faspex (for on-the-fly watermarking workflow) or used standalone (for inventory based watermarking workflow).
Introducing 2-Step Watermarking
The pre-processor calculates watermark data placement throughout the file and saves this in an intermediate format
When a uniquely-serialized file is needed, a payload is generated by the NexGuard Manager and passed to the NexGuard plugin running in Aspera Faspex.
The NexGuard plugin running in Aspera Faspex adds the unique identifier to the file as it is transfered via Aspera.
