Image Processing Expert for Multimedia Database Patent Infringement
An image processing expert in multimedia databases was needed for a patent infringement case involving video image retention and data information security systems for use in conjunction with automated bank teller machines (ATM). The patent claims covered a video camera activated to capture an image of the customer who conducted a transaction so that the data associated with the transaction together with the image were stored on a disk drive. This form of intelligent video system is used by the financial services industry to create a multimedia database for security purposes, creating a record of the transaction details and corresponding digital video images.
IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate an electrical engineering expert with a comprehensive understanding of database architecture and experience with multimedia databases. The expert was required to be familiar with digital video technology, especially image capture and image processing applications.
