Thomson's NexGuard Watermarking Integrated in Dolby Digital Cinema Servers

Thomson (Euronext Paris: 18453; NYSE: TMS), today announced Dolby Laboratories Inc. (NYSE: DLB) offers the option of NexGuard, Thomson's content security solution suite, in its digital cinema servers. NexGuard watermarking is intended to prevent illegal recordings of digital cinema content, as required by the Digital Cinema Initiative's (DCI) V1.1 specifications. This partnership enables Dolby to embed NexGuard's video forensic watermarking solution in its digital cinema server, which can replay DCI compliant 2D and 3D digital cinema images. Thomson and Dolby have been working together since 2006.

"Thomson is at the forefront of digital content security innovation and provides piracy-dissuasion solutions for all release windows," said Jian Zhao, chief technology officer of Thomson's Software and Technology Solutions business, within the Technology division. "Dolby is a global leader in media ecosystems, and we are pleased to partner with them to offer studios a security solution for all digital cinema screens, including 3D theaters."

Its implementation for digital cinema exceeds DCI specifications by providing resistance to illegal camcorder capture and compression, as well as offering the flexibility to embed more than the required amount of identification information.

"By working closely with a leader in digital video technologies such as Thomson, Dolby is able to provide state of the art security across its digital cinema systems."
