ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale patents disclosing a motion-based algorithm for fingerprinting digital video, available from The University Court of the University of St Andrews, Scotland, UK. This portfolio is offered as part of the Internet of Things IP Auction, with a bidding deadline of July 30th, 2015.

“This is an important portfolio for providers of DRM and/ or content management software products, video anti-piracy services and content monitoring systems,” says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

Key Characteristics & Benefits
With a 2004 priority date, the portfolio for sale discloses a “motion-content-based” algorithm for accurate identification of digital video footage bitstreams which is independent of codec type or video impairments such as noise, picture area cropping, color/ dynamic gain contrast/ brightness variations etc.

The technique comprises identifying motion in a video as a function of time and using the identified motion to create a motion fingerprint, then identifying peaks and/or troughs in the motion fingerprint and using these to create a reduced size point of interest motion fingerprint. Reduced size fingerprints for a plurality of known videos can be prepared and stored for later comparison with reduced size fingerprints for unknown videos, thereby providing a mechanism for identifying the unknown videos.

In three key regions (North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific), the absolute amount of bandwidth consumed by the infringing use of video streaming comprised 1,527 petabytes of data in 2012, an increase of 471.9% from 2010 (1). This technology has the potential to greatly reduce unauthorized video uploads and distribution.
