About Image Analyzer
Artificial intelligence-based content moderation technology
Image Analyzer provides artificial intelligence-based content moderation technology for image, video and streaming media, including live-streamed footage uploaded by users. Its technology helps organizations minimize their corporate legal risk exposure caused by employees or users abusing their digital platform access to share harmful visual material. Image Analyzer’s technology has been designed to identify visual risks in milliseconds, including illegal content, and images and videos that are deemed harmful to users, especially children and vulnerable adults.
The company is a member of the Online Safety Tech Industry Association (OSTIA).
Founded in 2005, Image Analyzer holds various patents across multiple countries under the Patent Co-operation Treaty. Its worldwide customers typically include large technology and cybersecurity vendors, digital platform providers, digital forensic solution vendors, online community operators, and education technology providers which integrate its AI technology into their own solutions.
Why Image Analyzer
Image Analyzer focuses on detecting visual threats. Our unique content moderation technology uses advanced artificial intelligence that delivers unparalleled accuracy with near zero false positives, all in a matter of milliseconds. Other labelling technologies are often too general and struggle to identify specific visual threats. Our technology has been designed to constantly improve the accuracy of core visual threat categories.
Image Analyzer partners are our customers. Our Go-To-market busines model is to, predominately, engage with software vendors, service providers and digital platform owners in an OEM partnership. This allows us to focus on the specific needs of our partners. Our simple API makes it easy for our partners to integrate our technology into their applications.
We offer easy to integrate technology, dedicated technical support and flexible licensing options. Partners can choose the deployment option that best suits their needs: a managed Cloud Service, an on-premise Virtual Appliance or an embedded SDK – compatible with all major operating systems.

“The risk of young people being harmed by toxic content they encounter online is too great for a single platform operator to tackle on its own, or to build from scratch. By collaborating with Image Analyzer we can block offensive live-streamed video at unprecedented levels and make online communities safer.”
