MotionDSP announces Ikena Copyright for video tracking

April 5, 2007

MotionDSP, a provider of digital video technology, has announced Ikena Copyright, a copyright detection technology that creates a video fingerprint by tracking unique motion characteristics in a particular piece of video.

Ikena Copyright uses a component of MotionDSP's military-grade video enhancement technology, first announced in October 2006.

The software product uses video intelligence algorithms (which are based on the company's core video enhancement technology) to generate signatures for any video file. The video signature system stands up to editing, low bit rate compression, cropping and aspect ratio changes. It can even identify videos that have been converted to black and white or had their color distorted.

Ikena Copyright has been designed to scale to a very large content database, operating on a high volume of matching. The company said a database of thousands of hours of copyrighted video, matching tens of thousands of uploaded videos per day, was possible.
