Version 1.3 of the UHD Forum Guidelines was released Friday and includes an overview of forensic watermarking, as well as a deployment scenario for forensic watermarking.
Several member companies initiated the creation of these security guidelines that are now endorsed by all participating watermark vendors – including ContentArmor, Irdeto, MarkAny, NexGuard and Verimatrix.
The UHD Forum said that the Guidelines define different integration approaches on a high level, to facilitate watermarking in ecosystems including CDNs and video encoders.
“Our guidelines’ security chapter on best practice for content encryption is an important foundation for sharing know-how on how to meet many content owner requirements,” said Laurent Piron of Nagra, who chairs the UHD Forum Security Workgroup.
“The Forum has now extended this with a full description of the implementation of forensic watermarking, which will enable the secure delivery of much more premium UHD content at a time when sales of UHD-enabled devices are at an all-time high.”
