NEC video identification software instantly locates video clips within vast collections of video data
NEC announced today the availability of new video identification software that almost instantly locates video clips within vast collections of video data. This video identification software extracts a finger print (video signature) for video clips that are matched with other video signatures in order to locate scenes quickly and accurately. The software also recognizes if a video was altered in ways that include caption overlays, resolution conversion, brightness conversion and bootleg recordings. As a result, organizations that treat video, such as television broadcasters, content holders, research companies and video-sharing sites, can automate and streamline their video confirmation procedures instead of using human observation, which is slower and subject to fatigue.
This software is available in English and Japanese through a model where 250 hours of video can be registered for 2.2 million yen ($27288-tax-excluded) or a model offering unlimited registration for 30 million yen (tax-excluded). NEC aims to sell the software to more than 100 companies throughout the world over for the next 3 years.
