Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS TO PERFORM MEDIA DEVICE ASSET QUALIFICATION
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE RÉALISER DES QUALIFICATIONS D'ACTIFS DE DISPOSITIF MULTIMÉDIA
Abstract:
(EN) Methods, apparatus, systems and articles of manufacture to perform media device asset qualification are disclosed. An example apparatus includes an asset quality evaluator to identify candidate media device assets obtained from a media device that identify media. The example apparatus further includes an asset grader to grade the candidate media device assets based on calculating a valid hash count corresponding to a number of matches between a first one of the candidate media device assets compared to a second one of the candidate media device assets using a hash table, and identify the first one of the candidate media device assets as a reference media device asset, the first one having a higher grade compared to grades of other candidate media device assets. The example apparatus further includes an asset loader to generate a validation report including the identification of the reference media device asset.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés, un appareil, des systèmes et des articles de fabrication pour effectuer une qualification d'actif de dispositif multimédia. Un appareil donné à titre d'exemple comprend un évaluateur de qualité d'actif pour identifier des actifs de dispositifs multimédia candidats obtenus à partir d'un dispositif multimédia qui identifient des médias. L'appareil donné à titre d'exemple comprend en outre un trieur d'actifs pour classer les actifs de dispositifs multimédia candidats sur la base du calcul d'un compte de hachage valide correspondant à un nombre de correspondances entre un premier des actifs de dispositifs multimédia candidats par comparaison avec un second des actifs de dispositifs multimédia candidats à l'aide d'une table de hachage, et identifier le premier des actifs de dispositifs multimédia candidats en tant qu'actif de dispositif multimédia de référence, le premier ayant un degré supérieur par rapport à des catégories d'autres actifs de dispositifs multimédia candidats. L'appareil donné à titre d'exemple comprend en outre un chargeur d'actifs pour générer un rapport de validation comprenant l'identification de l'actif de dispositif multimédia de référence.
