SESAC has signed Barcelona Music and Audio Technology (BMAT) as a technology partner to capture performances of its reportoire in programming on broadcast and cable television.

The pilot program will use BMAT's Vericast, a digital pattern-recognition algorithm, to monitor thousands of audio files from select SESAC publisher affiliates across top broadcast and cable outlets in an effort to streamline performance licensing, tracking and the payment process.

The program is aimed at using the latest advances in audio-recognition technology to improve the performance rights licensing, tracking and the payment process.
