Frequent Content Filter (FCF)

Frequent Content Filter, also called FCF, finds unknown and repeatedly played tracks which are over 60 seconds in duration.

“FCF1”


It’s  an extra feature and, once activated, you will find it in your Vericast Dashboard on the left side.

You can also filter the tracks by a specific date interval, channel, media or status. If you have the ID of an unknown track, you can use it to find a specific track.


Identifying an Unknown Track

There are 2 ways in which an unknown track can be identified:

  1. Once we receive the respective audio file with metadata. They are sent to us by publishers, labels, digital distributors, etc. Every night, the system automatically  compares the unknown tracks with the audio tracks in our database. If a match is found, the track receives the status of Resolved. It is then removed from the FCF list and added to your Report. Simultaneously, a periodical process is run to update retroactively all past identifications. 
  2. By manual edition. Check how to edit your FCFs. Every night, the system automatically updates your unknown tracks with the newly added information. Until then their status will remain as Pending. Once updated, it will change to Resolved and will be removed from the FCF list and added to your Report. Simultaneously, a periodical process is run to update retroactively all past identifications.

IMPORTANT: Please note that not every FCF can be considered music. For example, some ads with no musical content and commercials can be played repeatedly in various channels and appear in the FCF list.

We make sure to store all unknown tracks for as long as necessary so they can be updated whenever we receive the right information.
