BARC appoints Civolution for watermarking technology project

Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) has roped in Civolution—provider of technology and solutions for identifying, managing and monetizing content, for its watermarking technology. Last month, the council appointed Mediametrie as its technology partner. So now both Civolution and Mediametrie will together build the technology framework for BARC's audience measurement solution.

Notably, BARC addresses a population of over one billion out of which over 600 million people have direct access to television medium. This first of its kind fully digital audience measurement system is scheduled to commence operations by the end of this year. Partho Dasgupta, CEO, BARC says, "India has one of the largest TV audiences in the world so it was critical for us to create an audience measurement system that is gold standard. By leveraging Civolution and Mediametrie's expertise in audience tracking, technology and analytics we can now study viewers' TV habits in precise detail, enabling broadcasters and advertisers to implement efficient strategies to reach their target audience."

Under the new system, Civolution's audio watermark will be embedded in the TV's sound track prior to broadcast. Upon airing, the content is identified by Mediametrie's TV meter, in real-time. In addition to granular measurement of the content being watched, the solution also features support for catch-up TV.

The technology provides cross-platform audience measurement and will enable mobile device measurement, triggering the creation of new services and the reduction of operating costs. Moreover, the same watermark infrastructure deployed by Indian broadcasters could be used to accurately synchronise their own interactive second screen applications. ...

Ready for any thing

Seasoned theatre and film director Feroz Abbas Khan talks about his maiden television serial “Mai Kuch Bhi Kar Sakthi Hoon”
Renowned for directing Gandhi, My Father and plays such as Saalgirah, Tumhari Amrita, Salesman Ramlal and Gandhi Viruddh Gandhi, Feroz Abbas Khan, is now donning a new role — that of directing a 52-episode trans-media (comprising television, radio, Internet and mobile phones) serial Mai Kuch Bhi Kar Sakthi Hoon (MKBKSH).

To be telecast on Doordarshan from March 8, the International Women’s Day, the serial aims to enhance knowledge and change perception and attitudes on social determinants of health to eventually contribute in improving demand, access and quality of reproductive health in India. The neglect of gender issues, like preventing early marriages, early and repeated pregnancies, under-nutrition of girls, domestic violence and sensitisation of boys, too, will be dealt with.............

........Praising Doordarshan for telecasting the serial, Feroz hopes that private channels take a cue from the national channel that has taken up social and national issues through landmark programmes such asHum Log, Buniyaad, Malgudi Days, Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi, Tamas, Bharat Ek Khoj..... 

TECHNOLOGY UPDATES


NEW BEST-IN-CLASS AUDIENCE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

Civolution, the leading provider of technology and solutions for identifying, managing and monetizing content, today announced that the Indian Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) has contracted it to provide its watermarking technology to underpin one of the world’s largest audience measurement platforms. This comes shortly after BARC chose the TV meter system of Médiamétrie, the audience measurement and survey company for television, radio, cinema and the internet. The two companies will build the technology framework for audience measurement solution for BARC.

The audience measurement system – which has already successfully been deployed by Médiamétrie in multiple TV markets – relies on Civolution’s audio watermarking coding technology for automated content identification and integrates seamlessly into Médiamétrie’s TV meter system for panellists’ equipment and panellists’ data processing. It provides broadcasters with a detailed analysis of their exposure to the public, whether by the number of households tuning in to the programme or the amount of time spent watching each piece of content.

Civolution’s audio watermark is embedded in the TV’s sound track prior to broadcast. Upon airing, the content is then identified by Médiamétrie’s TV meter, in real-time. 

In addition to granular measurement of the content being watched, the solution features support for catch-up TV. The technology provides cross-platform audience measurement and will enable mobile device measurement, triggering the creation of new services and the reduction of operating costs. In parallel, the same watermark infrastructure deployed by Indian broadcasters could be used to synchronize with great accuracy their own interactive second screen applications.
