and content recognition software (ACR) for all your media monitoring needs. 

The ivitec automatic media monitoring software (TVCM) can quickly and efficiently monitor media content and provide accurate, real-time results for your media analytics. The readily scalable media monitoring technology, based on ivitec's patented adaptive video and audio fingerprinting software solution, can identify media content across an unlimited number of TV and Radio channels and other media sources.

Flexible, Scalable and Robust Media Monitoring Software

ivitecs media monitoring solution was designed to handle the most demanding automatic media content recognition and monitoring needs. The PC-based TVCM system scales linearly; the number of monitored channels can be easily expanded by adding PCs to the cluster. Any audio and video source, including terrestrial TV, satellite, cable, mobile TV and IPTV can be monitored by plugging the video source directly into the PC - either recorded as chunks or directly connected to the system through MPEG-TS via RTP/UDP. 

The system’s fully modular design minimizes the impact on existing customer workflows. The modules may be independently located allowing for remote video capture, fingerprinting, analysis, and results viewing. The automatic content recognition (ACR) software for media monitoring of ivitec has been developed over 10 years and has evolved to be best in class and offers unmatched accuracy and usability by combining video and audio recognition.

Use Case Applications

  • Automated media monitoring for advertising tracking and compliance
    Advertising compliance monitoring and reporting is an increasingly important task for broadcasters to prove to their media clients that their booked advertising slots have been aired according to their commercial agreement. At the same time, advertisers and media agencies increasingly take up that task themselves and monitor the channels where they booked airime. ivitecs media monitoting solutions, and AdMon in particular, lets you verify media plans and if your ads were screened as scheduled and paid for. The ivitec Admon Advertisement Monitoring Solution can be used to pinpoint which commercials are aired, when they’re aired, in which markets, and which versions.  It's the most accurate way to keep track of your marketing efforts.

  • Analyse which media content has been broadcasted by broadcast networks 
    Once content leaves the network and makes its way to the affiliates or even onto television, it’s exceedingly difficult to monitor and control where your content has been streamed. The ivitec media content monitoring software (TVCM) can be used to ensure that affiliates play required network content, or even to ensure that pirated commercials aren’t inserted downstream by local cable providers. Our media monitoring software is used by a variety of content providers from sport, news and production companies alike.

  • Oversee where your political campaigns are broadcasted and to which extend
    Understanding the target and reach of a candidate’s campaign or how the media presents him or her is a monumental task. The ivitec TVCM system can automatically track political campaign commercials or enable political organizations to see how each of the broadcast networks portrays the candidates by analyzing which content they choose to air based on an available set of media references.

  • Automated content monitoring for PR firms, research, and monitoring agencies
    There’s a lot of media content out there to track and not enough hours in the day to watch or listen to it all. The ivitec TVCM system can track vast amounts of content. ivitec also offers a full solution for commercial advertisement detection across major markets, or even entire countries with ivitec AdMon Ad Monitoring. Tracking PR campaigns, ad campaigns or even news stories and events are all possible with our automatic content recognition software.
