unlogo

A sample frame (minus logo) of a prototype of what the filter does.

Unlogo is a new tactical media project from Eyebeam Alum Jeff Crouse that eliminates logos and other corporate signage from videos. The project launched this week as part of the Berkeley Net Art Exhibition.

Join Jeff for a 2-hour workshop on Sept 29th from 6-8PM where he will teach participants how to use the tools behind Unlogo: the new FFMPEG AVFilter interface in conjunction with OpenCV to make "smart" video filters.

You can also support the project's future development with your dollars via the Unlogo Kickstarter campaign. http://kck.st/co2Ec6

Innovation: how to delete corporate logos from view

* 16:02 22 October 2010 by MacGregor Campbell

Innovation is our regular column in which we highlight emerging technologies and predict where they may lead

Call it advertisement hacking. Technology-inspired artists have designed ways for you to mask or perhaps even delete company logos in your field of view as you wander around a city or shopping centre.

The trend subverts a technology called augmented reality (AR)Movie Camera, by which virtual information – say restaurant ratings – is overlain on the real world as you peer through smart glasses or a smartphone camera.

New York artist Jeff Crouse has designed a program called Unlogo, which detects corporate logos in a video stream, then replaces them.

 

Today I re-launched my Unlogo Kickstarter Campaign.  I realize that this kind of defeats the purpose of “all-or-nothing”, but I got a few requests to do so, so let’s see what happens!

It will be very embarrassing if it fails again.

If you are interested in Unlogo, please sign up for the discussion group. I will keep it low traffic, but I’d love to get feedback on new ideas and let you guys know what is going on with development, etc. There is some exciting stuff to tell you already!

Movies and TV shows are riddled with product placements, subliminal ads that appear whenever a character brandishes an iPhone or sips a Dr. Pepper with a smile. But those pesky placements could soon be removed at the click of a button, thanks to a new Web service called Unlogo..

Simply put, Unlogo is a filter that detects logos and corporate signage in videos, and eliminates them. The service was started by Jeff Crouse

 

I will be teaching a workshop at Eyebeam on Sept 29th based on what I learned so far with Unlogo. This will include the FFMPEG AVFilter interface (new! exciting!), and some OpenCV 2.1 stuff.  I will basically be teaching people how to build their own “smart” video filters.
