Videocites is a cloud-based SaaS platform system for video-by-video searching and video citation monitoring. The platform enables the location, tracking, and increased monetization of videos throughout the web, creating a first-of-its-kind marketplace for content owners, creators, and developers. The company’s video-by-video search engine utilizes a novel technology that recognizes each video frame by an ultra-lightweight fingerprint, allowing fast and accurate retrieval of duplicates or parts of an original video across video-sharing websites. Videocites defines these search results as Video Citations. Videocites machine-learning algorithms facilitate the identification of identical video parts even if they are displayed in different modalities (e.g. with differences in quality, aspect ratio, color, size, rolling, flipping, subtitles, etc.) or only a few frames long.
