See video recognition in action!

Find the other half of conversations your brand has been missing!

Tired of getting only half the story? Our video recognition will reveal the most complete brand story to date. There’s nothing else out there like it, with 3x more brand mentions detected than traditional textual monitoring.

To help you detect your brand logos like never before:

  • Find consumer insights to create campaigns with impact.
  • Protect your brand from a crisis - in text, image and video.
  • Measure the true ROI of your sponsorships.

By 2021, 80% of all Internet content is forecast to be video.

Mankind loves stories. They define us. They reflect our role in history. And communicate our dreams for the future. No wonder social media took off. It lets everyone share their stories on a global level.

And it’s evolving. Status updates and quick snaps don’t accurately portray the fast-moving world around us.
We need more. People want videos. And lots of them. Equipped with film studios packed inside their smartphones, social media users are the directors of their own tales - with Instagram Stories, Facebook Watch, YouTube, TikTok, etc, etc.

And what do those videos contain? Your brand. If you want to keep up, you have to evolve too.
