Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR USING LOCATION INFORMATION TO MANAGE SPILLOVER IN AN AUDIENCE MONITORING SYSTEM
(FR) PROCEDES ET APPAREIL D'UTILISATION D'INFORMATION D'EMPLACEMENT POUR GERER UN DEBORDEMENT DANS UN SYSTEME DE SURVEILLANCE D'AUDIENCE
Abstract:
(EN) Methods, apparatus, and articles of manufacture for using location information to manage spillover in an audience monitoring system are disclosed. In particular, the example methods, apparatus, and articles of manufacture detect spillover to generate media monitoring information. Initially, a first sensor located in a first location and a second sensor located in a second location receive a portable metering device signal. First location information is then associated with receiving the portable metering device signal via the first sensor and second location information is associated with receiving the portable metering device signal via the second sensor. Media monitoring information is then generated based on one of the first location information or the second location information.
(FR) Procédés, appareil et articles de fabrication pour utilisation d'une information d'emplacement afin de gérer le débordement dans un système de surveillance d'audience. L'appareil, les procédés et les articles de fabrication détectent le débordement afin de générer une information de surveillance de média. Un premier capteur placé dans un premier emplacement et un second capteur placé dans un second emplacement reçoivent un signal de dispositif portable de mise en forme de trafic via le premier capteur et la seconde information d'emplacement est associée à la réception du signal du dispositif portable de mise en forme de trafic via le second capteur. L'information de surveillance de média est ensuite générée d'après la première information d'emplacement ou la seconde information d'emplacement.
