NEC has spent two years creating its video content identification system.

The aim? To ease the workload of video providers whose original content is distributed illegally on the Internet.

The new technology allows broadcasters, web services and film studios to automatically detect illegal copies of their original content.

"Our technologies really extract the realistic feature of the video frames themselves so it's really robust to any kind of illegal copying methods, including VCR monitoring or super imposed insertions."

NEC says companies using this system must initially register their original video into the system.

"It looks at each frame and the characteristics of sort of general characteristics of each frame is computed and extracted and sent into a very simple numerical codes and this is why it is possible to search very quickly all the Internet sites whether there's any unauthorized copies."

But those producers wanting this type of protection will have to wait. NEC says the system is not for immediate sale, but hopes to further develop the technology before it is released.
