Digital fingerprinting radically automates content detection across major social media platforms boosting the speed, accuracy, and data volumes processed
How does it work?
WebKontrol Video Fingerprint is a compact representation of a video that contains a digital description of selected frames. It’s a small file created from a video, where each fingerprint is unique to the original video. When matched with other fingerprints, it enables rapid identification of copies of the full video or its parts.
Video fingerprint has several properties that make it a perfect tool for fast video matching:
Generation of video fingerprints is conducted during a multi-step process that includes the detection and extraction of key video frames and encoding of their visual features to the binary representation. It’s a completely secure process as at no point in time WebKontrol has access to original video content.
WebKontrol video fingerprinting technology is adapted to detect multiple video alterations, distortions, and inconsistencies.
Currently, WebKontrol video fingerprinting technology supports:
WebKontrol puts security at the center of the technology design and maintains the highest level of data protection while delivering the services. At no point in time, WebKontrol collects or has access to video files used for the generation of video fingerprints. Video fingerprints are not reversible and cannot be transformed back to original video files. Without metadata, it is also not possible to identify media assets by their respective fingerprints.
Welcome to a new era of content protection
With a manual or semi-automated search, it’s almost impossible to identify and verify infringing videos in the limitless universe of videos ever uploaded onto the Internet. Our proprietary video fingerprinting technology solves this problem by enabling precise content identification on the largest resources within seconds. No human can outcompete machine-powered data processing on such a scale.
Multifunctionality of technology. Video verification.
Digital fingerprinting technology can be applied as a means of video verification to prevent the distribution of unauthorized, duplicate, and non-original content inside existing video ecosystems. Before being published, video content is fingerprinted and matched against a particular video database.
