Product Overview

Broadcast Monitoring

Broadcast Monitoring Broadcast Monitoring: Using its broadcast monitoring system, MusicTrace scans radio and TV programs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The information gathered can be used to generate various statistics for music titles and determine the speech/music ratio. On the one hand, these data can be used to ensure correct distribution of royalties. On the other hand, these data help to verify whether commercials were aired at the agreed times.

Audio Watermarking

Audio Watermarking Watermark Embedding: MusicTrace offers software products for embedding digital watermarks into audio signals. By means of these products it is possible to transmit additional information, e.g. a transaction number, hidden in the music. In doing so, distinguishable copies can be made of any particular music title or audio book. Those copies can be distributed to recipients in the scope of a pre-release campaign or a download shop subsequently. If such a file is found on the Internet at a later time, it can be traced back to the original recipient by means of the embedded watermark. [More information on Watermark Embedding]
