Ce este BMAT Vericast?

BMAT este companie de renume specializată în servicii de monitorizare a muzicii difuzate de posturile radio și TV (și nu numai, inclusiv alte servicii unde muzica este utilizată în domeniul ambiental), acoperind atât cataloage naționale, cât și internaționale.

Conform deciziei AGA nr. 9114/23.06 2021, incepand cu 01.07.2021, UPFR utilizeaza rapoartele de monitorizare BMAT in distributia remuneratiilor colectate. In acest caz este important ca repertoriul dumneavoastra sa fie amprentat in baza de date BMAT.

Pe de o parte, procesul de amprentare este unul gratuit ce presupune un efort minim din partea dumneavoastra, pe de alta parte de el depinde gradul de identificare al repertoriului dumneavoastra cat si banii distribuiti de UPFR, in perioada urmatoare, in baza acestui repertoriu.

Rapoartele de monitorizare pentru aceste canale vor fi incarcate in sistemul de distributie, iar datele din aceste rapoarte vor fi comparate cu baza de date Repertoriu din gestiunea UPFR.

Astfel, pentru a avea o identificare cat mai buna a fonogramelor, va rugam sa amprentati  in baza de date BMAT fonogramele ale caror drepturi le detineti.

Pentru realizarea procesului de amprentare, BMAT ofera mai multe solutii, diferentiate in functie de categoriile si numarul de fonograme, solutii enumerate mai jos:

  • - Amprentare prin Vericast Upload (gratuit, pentru toti producatorii)
  • - Amprentare prin FTP (doar pentru producatorii care detin un abonament Vericast)*

*Amprentarea prin FTP este recomandata pentru producatorii care detin cataloage mari si se poate efectua si prin intermediul UPFR (gratuit) sub conditia ca fiecare producator sa puna la dispozitia UPFR fisierele audio si fisierul excel completat cu metadatele corespunzatoare.

Amprentarea se realizeaza in conturi distincte, in functie de tipul fonogramei amprentate (fonograma de comert sau fonograma publicata in scop comercial/librarie muzicala).

Daca detineti ambele tipuri de conturi, autentificati-va cu contul specific, in functie de tipul fonogramelor pe care doriti sa le amprentati.

In cazul in care nu mai cunoasteti datele de conectare va rugam sa ne contactati prin email.
