Technology to pinpoint where a picture was re-taken. Developed by NHK and Mitsubishi Electric

12, 19. 2007

Japan Broadcasting Corp. and Mitsubishi Electric Corp. announced on Dec. 5, 2007 that they have developed the technology to pinpoint when and where a movie pictures was taken even if the picture had been taken with a video camera from a movie or TV screen. The companies said the new technology would help prevent pirate video movies that have been taken from TV and movie screens and illegally sold or distributed over the internet. Such piracy is now creating problems. A movie theater that is equipped the digital cinema system can put "watermarked" information on the film, and a theater where a picture is re-taken can be traced back. The new technology would thus be effective in preventing the re-taking of movie pictures with video cameras, the announcement said.
