With the emergence of multi-core processors and the sharp decline in prices of processors and memory, German business software maker SAP developed a technology that made it possible for even large enterprises to dispense with hard disks and store and perform all operations on the main memory.

CIMM DEFINITION: This technology allows viewers to control camera angles during live events, select which commercials they want to watch, and generally control a selection of choices content producers provide as part of the broadcast. E-commerce and interaction with those commercials is possible. In the backend, servers collect choice information and offer viewers further selections based on those choices.  This is enabled by the careful management of multiple video streams to one TV screen in which small windows capture video programming in one view. The viewer is able to switch to each window using their Remote Control one at a time. When they do so, the audio of that channel becomes active and, therefore, audible. Some applications enable other interactive graphics that overlay or sit within the frame of the screen that the viewer can also access. Companies pioneering this type of application are Sky Digital in the UK and DISH in the US. (Source: itvt.com/glossary)

Interval Data Collection

August 14, 2012

NOTE – Different operators have differing systems and can store varying amounts of data for varying amounts of time.

NOTE – Within the digital cable environment, the limited bandwidth of the out-of-band return path (a.k.a. backchannel) has the greatest impact on the interval of data collection. The technology exists to store up to 7 days of second-by-second measurement data on even the least capable legacy Set-Top Boxes, so neither storage nor resolution need be an issue.

The ISCI coding system has been maintained and operated by the American Association of Advertising Agencies (AAAA) and the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) since 1992. Prior to then, ISCI was independently maintained by its users. An ISCI code is usually a set of 8 characters, the first four being alphabetic, and the remaining four being numeric, in the format ‘ABCD1234’ . The alphabetical characters usually represent the advertiser (some examples are QWAN for Wells Fargo Bank, KOCL (and more recently CL) for Coca-Cola, and PEMX for Pepsi), and the numeric characters usually represent the spot itself, with different numbers used for either different spots, or different versions of the same spot.
