Photo authenticity proving technology

- An echo canceller that works in a variety of hands-free speech environments -

Overview

This photo authenticity proving technology (TruePhoto) can accurately determine whether a photo taken using a dedicated i-application of a camera-equipped mobile phone has been altered or not.

This is useful when photos taken with a camera-equipped mobile phone are to be used as evidence or proof.

Description

  • The operation is as simple as starting the dedicated i-application and pressing its shutter button.
  • If even a single pixel of the photo taken has been altered, the detection software detects the alteration.
  • If the mobile phone has GPS capability, the authenticity of the location where the photo was taken can be determined.
