FADEL ARC EXTENDS VIDENTIFIER’S CONTENT RECOGNITION SOFTWARE WITH RIGHTS CLEARANCE
New York, NY – September 8th, 2016 – TV content distributors worried about unauthorized use now have a new compliance weapon in their armory, thanks to a collaboration between FADEL and Videntifier. FADEL, leading providers of cloud-based intellectual property (IP) rights and royalty management software and Videntifier, innovators of content detection technology, are joining forces to provide an integrated compliance monitoring service.
As the number of opportunities to exploit content and the platforms used to manage it both grow, it has become increasingly hard to track usage. Content owners, broadcasters, studios and distributors who have traditionally relied on trust and goodwill face a growing risk.
“Videntifier’s innovative technology monitors each use of content on broadcast TV and non-linear platforms, and FADEL’s tools clear the content rights against deal terms in real time. This includes tracking the number of runs, the platforms on which the content is broadcast and streamed, and the territories in which it’s available. This joint solution will actively grow content distribution and licensing businesses,” said, Tryggvi Benediktsson, CCO at Videntifier.
“Broadcasters in particular are experiencing significant disruption to business processes because of growing distribution channels and the added complexities that OTT content presents,” said Tarek Fadel (@FadelTarek), Founder and CEO of FADEL. “This cooperation with Videntifier will help our clients stay ahead of the curve.”
