IDENTV Launches Intelligent Video-Fingerprinting Platform - The Google for Video Search and Analytics

IDENTV’s pioneering new platform is the next evolution in big video data, leveraging machine learning and AI to revolutionize video search and analysis.

San Francisco(20 Nov 2016)

IDENTV today announced the official launch of its intelligent video analytics platform. IDENTV is the first of its kind to use real-time media intelligence and content-recognition technologies to analyze video on a massive scale, allowing media companies and government agencies to easily identify and extract the information they need.

The commercial-ready IVP (Intelligent Video-Fingerprinting Platform) contains a full suite of proven Automated Content Recognition technologies that can extract visual data from thousands of streams simultaneously. Pioneering algorithms search these cloud-based indexes in seconds, and the latest AI techniques allow users to identify specific moments or in-video elements with extreme accuracy. Whether it is facial recognition for national security purposes or tracking products to monitor ad spends, this technology has the power to revolutionize how a range of industries use video to do business.

“IDENTV is to video what Google is to text,” explains Founder and CEO, Mohammad Shihadah. “Imagine being able to instantly pinpoint an exact match of one specific clip, face, object or text that sits buried in a virtual ocean of millions of minutes of video. Now imagine being able to track the in-video movement of persons and objects over time.” Shihadah adds. “By combining high-speed recognition with real-time search and verification, our IVP provides companies with an accurate, efficient, and scalable solution to big data video analytics.”

Scaling faster than any other digital content type, today video is more accessible than ever. Yet searching and analysing across this ever-expanding sea of video content has remained a frustrating process. IDENTV’s mission is to fill the gap left by current video and analytics software, transforming the way large-scale video can be understood and analyzed. 

“From drones to cell phones to live streams, video has become ubiquitous, and there is zero doubt that it will make up the majority of future internet traffic,” Shihadah explains. “What sets us apart from our competitors is the unique ability to provide instant metrics from billions of hours of real-time video, as well as extract cross-channel analytics.”

The IDENTV Big Video Index is also the first of its kind, allowing users to isolate and identify specific pieces of visual content captured by a powerful ACR (Automatic Content Recognition) system.

According to world-leading research publication, Market and Markets, the Automatic Content Recognition Market will be worth 3.57 Billion USD by 2021, with “acoustic and digital video fingerprinting technology” expected to be “one of the most promising segments.”

Designed by a global team of machine learning experts, and with clients in the Television, Media, and National Security spaces, IDENTV’s pioneering IVP looks set to be a potential market leader.


IDENTV leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence to transform the way the world searches and exploits massive video. Using disruptive video technology and computer vision, its revolutionary Intelligent Video-Fingerprinting Platform (IVP) is the next evolution in big video data.
