Overview  
ivitec offers software solutions for video content identification and monitoring with state-of-the-art Adaptive Video Fingerprinting™ technology at its core. Developed at the renowned Fraunhofer Organization — home of the mp3 audio encoding standard — iPharro's core technology is capable of identifying video content from any digital video source in all common formats.
What is Video Fingerprinting?  
A video fingerprint is a compact digital representation of a video that summarizes the unique characteristics of the material.  This small fingerprint file — and countless others which correspond to other unique videos — can be stored, retrieved and used to identify the original video whenever it appears from within any source. Video fingerprinting generates a unique digital profile and can be used to analyze and identify any video source (including TV, video repositories, other digital streams) wherever and however it is subsequently used.  Because the fingerprint is based on the unique optical characteristics of the video, it can be used to compare similar videos: different versions of the same material will have subtly different fingerprints and can be used to identify and classify “different but related” versions.
Why ivitec and its Adaptive Video Fingerprinting™ Technology?  
Conventional video fingerprinting approaches use a single algorithm in the hope that this “average” solution will fit the majority of the use cases.  But, just as one size of glove cannot possibly fit every hand, iPharro recognizes that one rigid approach cannot possibly be optimal for every use case or application. Rapid searches require a lightweight fingerprint, whilst frame-by-frame comparisons with precise attention to detail require a dense fingerprint.  iPharro's ground-breaking Adaptive Video Fingerprinting™ technology is able to adjust the density and granularity of fingerprints to match specific use cases, and is the only approach that is capable of meeting the content identification demands of the full range of complex media-centric business processes.
 
ivitec MediaSeeker Core Platform™  
Media–centric businesses that need to rapidly and efficiently identify, control and monetize their content use MediaSeeker Core Platform™ 3.0 to integrate powerful content identification and tracking capabilities into their workflows. ivitec's unique and fully configurable video indexing and identification engine accommodates a wide variety of video content and use cases and offers users the flexibility to adjust the granularity of fingerprint extraction down to the frame level. MediaSeeker Core Platform™ 3.0 is an ideal solution for the full range of search applications, from light to frame-intensive, archive versioning, content future-proofing, media redundancy prevention (MRP), broadcast monitoring, and numerous other areas. At the heart of the ivitec MediaSeeker™ Core Platform 3.0 is fully owned video fingerprinting technology developed at Germany's world-renowned Fraunhofer Institute.

iPharro TVCM (extension)  
iPharro TVCM enables Media Intelligence companies to monitor broadcast streams for news clips, election footage and competitive broadcast information in real time across multiple channels. With an increasing number of channels out there, manual methods simply won't suffice anymore. ivitec TVCM – an extension of the ivitec MediaSeeker Core Platform™ – is able to identify content across an unlimited number of TV channels and provide users with up to the minute information including time and channel of broadcast with unparalleled accuracy. Because there is no requirement to watermark material prior to identification, there's no limitation to the content that can be monitored - regardless of whether it has already been distributed to licensors or other customers.

Admon (extension)  
The rapid increase in the number of channels has rendered manual methods of advertisement identification ineffective. Ad monitoring companies who are looking for tools to eliminate human resource-intensive monitoring processes use iPharro AdMon to automate, simplify and streamline the process of identifying new and preexisting ad placements across an unlimited number of TV channels. By automating the ad detection process, errors are significantly reduced whilst productivity is dramatically improved – translating into both increased revenues and lower costs. Admon was designed with the best practices of an optimally functioning ad monitoring organization in mind and is based on the experience gained from world-class customers like The Nielsen Company.
