Watermarking & Fingerprinting

Watermarking & Fingerprinting

We monitor video on TV channels worldwide using two technologies.

WATERMARKING is the process of inserting a hidden code into video giving each piece of content a unique identity. Upon detection, the unique code conveys client ownership information. 4C’s Teletrax® technology has superior detection granularity, and can be used to differentiate two identical copies of content. The watermark must be applied to the original content and a watermarked sub-master is distributed for broadcast.

FINGERPRINTING is the process of extracting unique characteristics of the content to generate a reference fingerprint to compare to fingerprints of broadcast content. When a reference fingerprint matches a broadcast fingerprint, a detection is registered and logged. Fingerprints are capable of detecting legacy content, are extremely robust to compression, have a detection granularity of 5-10 seconds. The fingerprint can be captured before or after distribution and generation of a sub-master is not required.
