Mountain View, CA, Dec. 11, 2008. Anvato Inc. announced it has raised $2 million of $4 million in Series A funding on the heels of launching its one-of-a-kind video identification and monetization service. Anvato uses computer machine vision to analyze videos and does not require meta-tags or watermarks to be embedded inside the videos. The company uses this technology to track copyrighted videos across the Internet and control their distribution and monetization from a single point. Using Anvato, publishers can opt in advertising where both publishers and distributors convert a legal liability into profits.
