P-VCD is the result of the PhD thesis work Content-Based Video Copy Detection.

P-VCD has been described in some scientific papers, e.g., http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/ICME.2011.6012212 and http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s11042-011-0915-x

P-VCD has been used at TRECVID tasks: Content-Based Copy Detection (CCD) 2010-2011, Instance Search (INS) 2012-2014 and Multimedia Event Detection (MED) 2013-2014.
