video fingerprint - Computer Definition
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.
