Axwave's portable ACR technology monitors content occurrences across Live TV, DVR, On Demand, OTT, Radio and TV Ads

Content Identification

Content identification

Enhance your mobile app by integrating Axwave’s ACR features. You will be able to identify detailed media occurences: channel/platform, program, episode and season number, brand and product advertised…

Axwave’s technology uses any audio input to securely and privately collect and report media occurrences in real time. Our services also include highly advanced post-processing contextual learning to provide razor sharp results. Axwave’s highly advanced ACR encrypts and compresses microphone audio and sends a small fingerprint (*) of data for servers to decipher, which is several orders of magnitude more efficient than other solutions.

(*) Digital Fingerprints are compact digital impressions extracted from the original audio content which represent contents’ characteristics and have enough details to identify a content variant upon comparison.
