CISAC And BMAT Sign Landmark Agreement For Easier Identification Of Digital Music All Over The World

Bookmark and Share

CISAC, the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers and BMAT, a technology company specialized in music identification technologies, products and services announced their agreement around the ISWC standard (ISO 15707:2001). The ISWC (International Standard Musical Work Code) is a unique, permanent and internationally recognized ISO reference number for the identification of musical works. Integrated within the musical works administration databases, the ISWC is the 'lingua franca' which will facilitate music market databases to be linked automatically.

The ISWC is part of the CIS plan (Common Information System), which CISAC has developed in order to respond to the need for information in the digital age. The ISWC allows the unique and accurate identification of each specific musical work. Other identification methods of musical works, such as the title of the work, may at times result in confusion especially when multiple musical works share the same or similar titles. Since ISWC remains permanently with a musical work, it identifies that musical work even after the work is distributed across national boundaries and language barriers. The ISWC is supporting a wide range of computerized applications, particularly those involving tracking and exchange of musical works information (e.g. Registration, Identification, Royalty Distribution, etc.).

BMAT will integrate the ISWC into Vericast, its global music identification service that monitors millions of songs over 3,000 radios and televisions across more than 50 countries worldwide. Vericast is currently used by more than 45 collective management organisations, and being connected to the digital music feeds of major companies as well as thousands of labels via the main digital aggregators. The solution provides real time recognition and auditable reporting based on an audio fingerprint that is resistant to signal alterations such as voice over, broadcast mastering or noisy channel degradation. With continuous and precise tracking, Vericast guarantees accurate emission reports, making it ideal for transparent and efficient royalty distribution.

"The adoption of the ISWC standard by BMAT is a landmark in creating a clear marketplace for music stakeholders," said Josť Macarro, Director of Information Systems at CISAC, the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers and the leading worldwide network of authors' societies. "Today there is nearly 34 million musical works registered through the ISWC system. The CISAC-BMAT agreement will help authors' societies develop their business by improving identification and distribution processes".

"At BMAT we are constantly striving to provide the most accurate, auditable and cost-effective solution to authors' societies, performers and producers around the world. We are very proud of being the first technology company partnering with CISAC," said Pedro CANO, Chief Technology Officer from BMAT. "Being able to enhance our reporting service with the CISAC-curated ISWC is a quantum leap forward towards worldwide fair and efficient creator royalty distribution".
