Welcome the Image Recognition Platform
PicScout Image Recognition Platform provides an integrated solution for copyrighted image services. Their Recognition Engine has become the industry's most scalable and effective image recognition engine that currently matches image and print images and millions of files even if they have been cropped, colorized, resized or suffered other manipulation. PicScout's Image Recognition abilities are non intrusive and act by identifying unique patterns within the images in order to allow comparison operations.
The engine has these capabilities:
- The ability to identify an exact match between a given image and a customer's catalogue image
- The ability to identify a partial match between a given image and a customer's catalogue image
- The ability to identify exact or partial matches even though a given image was modified or distorted by resizing, cropping, or coloring
- The ability to search and identify the owners of a given image within milliseconds to seconds
- The ability to execute different proprietary image recognition actions in order to provide a customer with the data and usage analysis

PicScout's Image Tracker works on a simple model: You send your image files for fingerprinting and inclusion in their huge database. Their spider searches the web on an ongoing basis for images used in commercial and editorial websites. They compare the images found to yours. When an image is identified, you get a report of *who copied it, *when it was copied, *how it is being used, and *where you can see it in use.

PicScout's pricing model is based on a number of different metrics, depending on your business model to monetize the images. They also charge based on a percentage of the recovered revenues. Expect to pay a minimum fee for the service -- although we couldn't get clear understanding of what those charges would be without signing up.

Soon, even now, we can look for online images marked with the small "i", the internationally used icon for information. Pointing to it will reveal much about the image-- who owns it, where I can buy it, even more information about the image, and a click-through to use the image legitimately. This is the first time web-viewed images are getting the attribution of their rightful owners or licensors and enabled with an easy connection to buy and use legitimately. PicScout is bringing both users and purveyors of images together online and on-the-fly to contract for legitimate image downloads forauthorized usage on or offline, and restoring the image economy.
PicScout has been working for years with image purveyors to identify online image use and estimates that 85 percent of all images are unlawful uses. With today's news, PicScout embarks on a path to transform image monetization from a reactive infringement model to a proactive one that enables use and buy on the spot.
