DigiMarc announced today an upgrade to its ImageBridge watermarking software product for image identification and search capabilities. Snippets:
"As the world's preeminent visual solutions provider, Corbis relies on Digimarc to defend our photographers' copyrights against infringement," said David Weiskopf, Corporate Counsel at Corbis. "We are excited about the enhanced image tracking capabilities offered in ImageBridge 2005. Digimarc continues to help Corbis lead the industry down the path of protection."
Stock photo, entertainment and consumer brand companies publish and distribute valuable digital images extensively in their online marketing and sales efforts. ImageBridge 2005 provides new search services to track these image assets on the Web, enhancing enterprise security and compliance programs.
The improved image tracking capabilities of ImageBridge 2005 include:
- Better image identification. ImageBridge 2005 identifies more instances of an enterprise's imagery on the Internet -- even those that were altered (cropped, compressed, resized, etc.) within or outside the approved workflow.
- Faster, more powerful searching. ImageBridge 2005 is built on an enhanced Web crawler platform, tuned to more quickly and effectively find image assets on the Web.
- Find legacy images. ImageBridge 2005 finds images already in distribution on the Web, as well as images created outside the standard image asset workflow.
