Triple-tier solution: Playlist Generation, Verification, Creative Capture

AdScanner offers a comprehensive triple-tier solution to the audio/video monitoring workflow; Playlist Generation, verification, and Creative Capture; integrated into one single scalable system.

Playlist Generation – Based on real-time recognition of audio/video fingerprints or watermarks, AdScanner generates a full log of specified ad playtimes and quality measurements over multiple channels; noting key indexing data e.g. name of advertiser, name of product, broadcast channel and exact spot duration.

Verification – AdScanner compares the data in the generated playlist to expected duration and quality parameters and identifies version discrepancies. When found, the system immediately notifies of any deviations from expected values in order to maximize ad efficacy.

Creative Capture – Using advanced automatic methods, AdScanner watches for newly broadcast ads. When detected, the system records, logs and automatically creates an easily accessible indexed archive of these items. Operators can then review, catalog and retrieve/deliver them.

Always in touch with media monitoring needs, wywy’s AdScanner contains built-in, highly-accurate version discrepancy detection. AdScanner catches version changes that other solutions miss – detecting as little as one second changes in video, and three second changes in audio, without manual review.
