The streaming platform CineSend has selected Nagra’s NexGuard forensic watermarking and detecrtion services to safeguard its content. CineSend is widely used by the media and entertainment professionals to host online screening events, virtual festivals, and premium direct-to-consumer offerings. The customer-branded streaming platform is trusted by hundreds of customers across the globe, including Lionsgate, A24, Cineplex, Tribeca and HBO, to keep their high-value content secure.
“To ensure the protection of our customer’s content, we required a partner who not only understood our business but also had a strong track record as a trusted market leader in this space,” said Colin Carter, founder, and CEO at CineSend. “Nagra met that need, immediately understanding the challenges we faced and knowing what was required to solve those challenges.”
Trusted by all of the major Hollywood studios, and deployed widely across major streaming platforms, Nagra’s server-side forensic watermarking technology enables CineSend to increase the security of its streaming offerings through unique watermarks for each stream of content without requiring any changes on the playout for any device. This approach helps keep piracy at bay across the platform and safeguards content against unauthorized use by enabling the ability to track down stolen content.
“As the industry leader by market share, Nagra is continuing its work as the trusted and preferred partner for forensic watermarking and anti-piracy services,” said Ken Gerstein, vice president sales at Nagra. “Protecting our customer’s valuable content is a responsibility we invest in and take extremely seriously, and we’re delighted to support CineSend as they distribute content for major studios and film festivals worldwide, to audiences of millions.”
