SeaChange International and Thomson Announce Content Delivery Platform For HBO

SeaChange International, one of the leading suppliers to television broadcasters globally, and Thomson, a leading provider of digital video, have announced the deployment of an advanced content delivery platform for HBO Latin American Group (HBO LAG), using digital watermarking for enhanced security.
HBO LAG is adopting the solution to make feature films available in the video-on-demand services of cable network operators throughout Latin America.
Pierre Jaspar, SVP Technology and Operations, HBO LAG, said: "As easily and efficiently as we can disseminate our content, it is equally important that we can ensure the content's integrity.
"The combination of SeaChange's delivery solution and Thomson's watermarking technology provides us with the most effective and reliable means of achieving those goals."
Based upon SeaChange's VODCast file-based content delivery system and Thomson's NexGuard video watermarking solution, the platform enables HBO Latin America to securely and cost-effectively transfer file-based move content in faster than real time from a single origination point in Miami to hundreds of server locations simultaneously.
The content is serialised on a per-operator basis, permitting any illicit copies to be traced back to the source of the leak.
Using secure satellite transmission, the VODCast system integrates NexGuard software at each receiver site where the MPEG files and streams are invisible watermarked upon receipt of new content.
The watermark data is based on a unique identifier on the catcher device and the process is fully automated, making it impossible to be bypassed at the receiver site.
HBO Latin American Group is a group of companies affiliated to Time Warner Entertainment Company, LP, Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc., The Walt Disney Company and Ole Communications Group.
