GDC Selects Thomson’S Forensic Watermarking for Digital Cinema Server Roll Out

Thomson (Euronext Paris: 18453; NYSE: TMS) today announced that GDC, one of the leading solution providers for digital cinema, has selected NexGuard™, Thomson’s comprehensive, state-of-the-art forensic tracking product line, for integration into 1,200 digital cinema servers.

GDC digital cinema servers will now embed NexGuard’s audio and visual forensic watermarking solution. NexGuard combats in-theatre piracy by offering forensic means to identify the date, time and location of illegal camcorder recordings.

“NexGuard is the most broadly integrated forensic watermarking solution in digital video equipment” said Jean-Luc Moullet, VP and Head of Thomson’s Software and Technology Solutions business. “We are proud to partner with GDC as we continue to secure the roll-out of digital cinema worldwide, particularly in Asia.”

NexGuard’s solution not only exceeds the Digital Cinema Initiative’s (DCI) specifications with resistance to illegal camcorder capture and compression, but also provides the ability to embed more than the required amount of critical identification information.

“Thomson is renowned in the digital distribution landscape for its unique content security solutions,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, CEO of GDC. “As we continue to expand our operations, we embrace Thomson as a strategic partner in the growing digital cinema landscape.”

The NexGuard family of content security solutions has been solely designed to serve the media, entertainment and communication industries, and offers the most wide-ranging line of products to track and secure digital audiovisual content through production, post-production, distribution and exhibition.
