Starting in July 2009, COSCAP will begin initial music monitoring in Barbados using the monitoring system of software technology company BMAT. COSCAP and BMAT announced their partnership to monitor all radio and later all television and internet broadcasts. Vericast is a powerful, lightweight, yet extremely robust audio recognition technology for monitoring radio, TV, Internet and live performances. The solution provides monitoring and recognition based on the analysis of raw audio that is resistant to signal alterations such as broadcast mastering effects or noisy channel degradation.With continuous and precise tracking, Vericast guarantees accurate emission
reports, making it ideal for identifying music broadcasts.
BMAT, Barcelona Music and Audio Technologies, is a music innovation company developing innovative software for the music industry. BMAT specializes in the development of audio technology software, focusing their knowledge and passion on one goal – to change the way people interact with music. Offering the latest cutting-edge technology, BMAT provides solutions for music copyright detection, music discovery and musical edutainment.
To make this initiative work for you, it is important that COSCAP has copies of all of your recordings (including jingles) and your permission to digitize them into the necessary format and to add all of the identification codes including the International Standard Recording Code (ISRC). The sooner we have your music in digital format the sooner we can identify it whenever it plays.
