|Our state-of-the-art video fingerprinting technology incorporates the latest advances in scene analysis, object tracking, and motion estimation to analyze the content of any video in order to identify its unique characteristics, such as colors, scene structure, and the motion of objects. This allows a copy of the video to be identified despite changes in resolution, bit-rate, method of encoding, or file format. The video can even be detected when it is included inside another video or when just a fragment of the video is reproduced. |
Our SDK allows you to integrate this video identification functionality into your applications and services. Our licensing agreement permits you to incorporate the technology in an unlimited number of products for one payment. There are no other fees, regardless of the number of copies of these products you sell.
A video fingerprint is a compact digital descriptor that can be extracted from any video source, whether it is a fragment of a TV broadcast, a video file, an online video, or from a DVD or Blu-ray Disk. These video fingerprints can then be stored, copied, and compared to one another. Video fingerprints can be used to identify copyrighted video material, identify duplicate videos, search for videos, organize videos, recognize when a specific video is played, media monitoring, or ad tracking.
Use VisioForge Video Duplicates Finder as a sample application to find similar video files.
Use VisioForge Media Monitoring Tool as a sample application to find one video fragment (tv commercial for example) in another (full broadcast recording).
C++ SDK supports Windows and Linux, or any other POSIX-compatible operating system (available by request).
.Net SDK supports Windows XP and later.
Each second of a video stream analyzed requires about 1kb for its video fingerprint. Duplicate detection generally only requires 3-5 seconds of each video to be indexed. Indexing of full videos is required in order to identify a video that has been included inside another.
Indexing one second of video takes about 300 milliseconds – the actual processing of the file accounts for about half of that time (150 milliseconds), while video decompression accounts for the rest. Matching a pair of 10 second long fingerprints takes 1-2 milliseconds. These times were established by testing with an Intel i3 processor and LAV filters for video compression.
C++: No. You will need some other library (FFMPEG, for example, demo available) in order to implement video reading in your application.
.Net: Yes, FFMPEG and libVLC included. Also system codecs can be used for decoding.
The following code samples are included with your purchase:
Full API described in help file.
We suggest you download and experiment with the trial versions of our Media Monitoring Tool application, Video Duplicates Finder application as well as familiarizing yourself with the API and code samples.
.Net version of SDK available in .Net SDK's installer (Download). MMT / VDF tools source code included (tools require .Net 4.5 for SOAP export. SDK can be used in .Net 2.0 and later).
MacOS, Windows or Linux.
Trial version overlay a nag-screen over the video window.
