Once Upon a Time: How to Track Down Broadcast Content from the Past

Real-time media monitoring has by now established as a reliable and immediate source of information. Thanks to technically advanced solutions, users can utilize previously set up search queries to observe live results or rely on e-mail notifications whenever new content of interest airs.

Findings can then be played, edited or shared according to users’ needs. That all applies for active search queries but what to do if content from the past is needed for which no profiles have been set up?

The Challenge of Accessing Information From the Past

Many media monitoring providers offer real-time services and results are being generated from the moment of profile creation onwards. The downside here is that any content that aired before saving the search queries can not be found and is therefore not part of any analysis.

In today’s data-driven business landscape though, some business decisions or incidents need background information from the past, for example, to fully understand how a situation developed or how it escalated. While there is a clear market need to react on ad hoc requests, it is difficult to find a tool that offers media data from the past.
