Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ADVERTISEMENT PLAYOUT CONFIRMATION IN DIGITAL CINEMA
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE CONFIRMATION DE DIFFUSION DE PUBLICITÉ DANS UN CINÉMA NUMÉRIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and system for tracking playout of auxiliary content (e.g., advertisements) accompanying a digital cinema feature presentation commences by first detecting identifying information in an auxiliary content file associated with the auxiliary content while the auxiliary content undergoes playout. The length of time the detected identifying information remains active is established. Thereafter, both the auxiliary content file(s) and identifying information activity length for which identifying information was detected are logged to track the auxiliary content files that underwent playout.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un système qui permettent de suivre la diffusion de contenu auxiliaire (par exemple des publicités) accompagnant une présentation de film de cinéma numérique, et qui commencent d'abord par la détection des informations d'identification dans un fichier de contenu auxiliaire associé au contenu auxiliaire pendant que le contenu auxiliaire est diffusé. La durée pendant laquelle les informations d'identification détectées restent actives est établie. Ensuite, à la fois le ou les fichiers de contenu auxiliaire et la durée d'activité des informations d'identification, pour laquelle des informations d'identification ont été détectées, sont enregistrés afin de suivre les fichiers de contenu auxiliaire qui ont été diffusés.
