SourceAudio Detect is Live!

After a Total Success in Beta It's Time to Launch

We’re pleased to report that SA Detect Beta has been a huge success! We have more than 120 companies using the new service and more than 3 million tracks watermarked. We’re currently monitoring over 80 of the top broadcast and cable channels, and on target to be fully monitoring more than 100 within the next 3-5 weeks. We’re capturing thousands of definitive detections daily and that number will rapidly increase as watermark proliferation accelerates and more channels are monitored. We’re successfully determining whether music is used in programs, promos, commercials, or movie trailers on TV. And finally we’ve conformed our detection reports to ASCAP, BMI and SESAC reporting standards, and are meeting with the PROs on a regular basis to ensure our data can be useful to their survey and distribution methods!

Converting from Beta to a New Subscriber: All current Beta subscribers will be unsubscribed and will receive a message telling them so. You will then be prompted to re-activate your account by providing your credit card information. Upon doing so your account will be reactivated immediately and you will begin to be billed a small monthly fee plus pennies per detection [View the Rate Schedule Here »]. We’ve designed our price structure to be more cost effective than alternative solutions and for you to get the most value out of your detections. Plus, we’ve built in a 6 month discounted ramp up period to keep costs down as you disseminate your watermarked files.
