Analyst Review

Automatic content recognition (ACR) is an identification technology that is used to verify the content played on a media device or present in a media file. In addition, the devices containing ACR support enable users to quickly obtain additional information about the content the user has just experienced without any user-based input or search effort. Moreover, ACR can be used to identify on-screen content and to sync with other automatic content recognition enabled devices, such as tablets and phones.

The global automatic content recognition market is expected to register high growth due to constant advancements in content recognition technology and rapid adoption of content recognition solutions across various industries. With growth in requirement for automatic content recognition, various companies have established alliance to increase their capabilities. For instance, in May 2022, Tremor International Ltd. Partnered with VIDAA to help Tremor's technology platform gain exclusive access to VIDAA's automatic content recognition ('ACR') data, across the globe.

In addition, with rise in demand for automatic content recognition, various companies have expanded their current product portfolio. For instance, in August 2022, Kyndryl partnered with JCB to launch an AI-based interactive automatic speech response system to further improve customer satisfaction and service quality.

Moreover, with increase in competition, major market players have started acquisition of small size companies to expand their market penetration and reach. For instance, in April 2021, Roku acquired Nielsen’s Advanced Video Advertising business, which offers Nielsen’s automatic content recognition (ACR) and dynamic ad insertion (DAI) technologies. With the acquisition, Roku is expected to launch an end-to-end DAI solution with TV programmers and further integrate Nielsen products into the Roku platform.
