video fingerprint

A summary of the attributes of a video file that is used to identify material such as DVD and Blu-ray discs and TV broadcasts. Video fingerprint identification is used for digital rights management (DRM) and to obtain meta-data for display when playing. Like the many music/audio databases developed over the years, once video data are captured, business rules can be applied and value can be added by websites and publishers to enhance the video experience. See acoustic fingerprint, music search and Gracenote MusicID.
