How Does VIS – Video Identification System Work?

VIS provides investigators with the ability to extract and compare video feature points so that even if the image is distorted or modified when compared against the original source the original content is easily identified.

One of the most important features of VIS is video DNA extraction. The video or image DNA is a set of specific characteristics extracted from the source material, which is then stored and managed in a database. By comparing the HASH value and DNA data in the database, VIS then determines whether it is the same video based on the percentage matched data.

During the DNA extraction and comparison process, investigators and detectives can significantly reduce their workload and time spent comparing and classifying videos, both manually and visually.

VIS can tackle challenges such as:

  • Edited playing time
  • Color alterations
  • Reversed imaging
  • Distorted imaging

VIS helps video publishers:

  • Minimize the illegal distribution of copyrighted content,
  • Establish a sound distribution system ensuring the legitimate collection of royalties,
  • Protect copyright material and secure profits

    VDE is designed to function fast in low specifications (PC specification, low network bandwidth), and VIS uses an optimized DNA search algorithm to produce results from hundreds of thousands of hours of video DNA within seconds. *May vary slightly depending on server specification.


    VIS detects the manipulation in videos (black-and-in-back, inversion, speed control, compression, subtitles, watermark, etc.) with a minimum accuracy of 99%.


    VIS is able to registers and categorizes hundreds of thousands of hours of videos, and filters tens of thousands of hours of video per day thanks to database structures specifical structured to processing large amounts of DNA data.

    Information Security

    It is not allowed to track back video content from DNA information extracted from the video, and only the DNA information is stored on the server.
