New iOS/Android/Win8 App Feature-use your device camera to identify actors on the tv screen, in a fashion similar to FB tagging (boxes appear around actor's faces with their name), then touching each face brings up their IMDB profile.

IMDB should purchase the functionality of IntoNow, so that the iOS app can listen to TV and movies and identify the playing episode or film. That's all I ever used IntoNow for. It would be a great Pro feature.

.  My idea was to use your products expansive
database of actors, actresses, broadcasters, and other television personalities
and add a camera element.  Now; I’m not
even quite sure if this technology is feasible or would even financially make
sense based on your company’s capital structure but the idea itself may be
beneficial to your company in the long-term.Through
your application, I would add a camera that would allow the user to identify
the person their watching without actually knowing their name.  Far too often I have found myself wondering
what other movies certain actors are in but finding that I do not know their
name and having to waste time searching through credits or using your app the
traditional way.  By linking a camera to
your products database, the user could simply take a photo of the person and
your data base would pop up their profile.

I guess yahoo had a wonderful app that functioned as Shazam does for music but for movies and series. It would listen to films and tell you what movie that was. Couldn't you have something like that?

That was IntoNow. I really wish IMDB would buy it from Yahoo, especially as Yahoo isn’t using it anymore...

So what if we can't figure out who an actor is and don't know what show/movie your watching? Face recognition would be great, kind of like the Amazon phone scanner!
