Evertz ProGuard enables you to protect your live broadcasts from offensive video or audio content. With ProGuard, broadcasters of live content can guard against unexpected or unwanted events (nudity, offensive images/language or technical issues) going to air by providing up to 30s of delay (in UHD). This flexible delay allows operators to correct offensive material to meet regulations and maintain program continuity.
ProGuard provides a simple and easy to use interface for operators to quickly conceal unwanted video or audio content.
ProGuard offers flexible and comprehensive delay techniques beyond simple video switches and audio beeps to meet demanding broadcasting requirements and simplify live production workflows.

Configurable Operator Reaction Time • ProGuard provides an easy to configure reaction time from 1-5s, allowing your operators to react reliably to eliminate offensive behavior or actions before they go on-air.
Future Proof • ProGuard provides support for HD/3G/UHD 4:2:2 10-bit formats with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and uncompressed IP formats (SMPTE ST 2022-6 and ST 2110).
Full Redundancy • ProGuard uses dual power supplies and solid state devices as standard features to maximize its reliability. In the case of SDI, internal bypass relays are triggered in the case of power loss.
ProGuard is built upon technology created by the team that originated profanity delay systems and has been used by major broadcasters globally. ProGuard is a platform designed for any format and interface type to guard your live broadcasts for now and the future.
