Diagram explaining what Tereo is

At the heart of the transformed collaboration between online platforms, responsibility facilitators, and content rights holders.

Our state-of-the-art technology and service help to make digital platforms a safer space where creativity can thrive.

Who is it for?

If you own, host or monitor content shared online or even if you are a mix, Tereo service ensures you have the technology and the support you need.

Responsibility facilitators

Enabling regulatory, law enforcement, and advocacy groups to curtail illegal and harmful content under regional social responsibility guidelines.

  • Tereo is a robust service for submitting reference fingerprints of content to the Tereo library for material that is illegal or irresponsible within a region, against which online platforms are able to take action.
  • Define region-specific usage rules to highlight sensitive content flagging to the platform for manual review; reporting to an agency; requesting immediate redress.
  • Tereo provides tools for computing fingerprints. As a result, reference video does not need to be uploaded to Tereo, reducing costs, lowering complexity, while maintaining security and privacy.
  • Tereo provides a one-stop shop – once fingerprints are submitted, all platforms can query centrally.
  • Language agnostic video and audio fingerprinting.
  • Source affirmation mechanism for platforms to flag "fake news", "deep fakes", and out of context usage to viewers.
  • As part of the Tereo library, independent of the online platforms, your fingerprints will improve the quality and safety of online communities – helping platforms be more socially responsible.

Hybrid application?

You are a Platform Owner and want to have your own responsibility repository?

  • To reinforce content moderation workflows, Tereo enables you to have a repository of material you want flagged within your internal systems. You can still search Tereo’s Rights holders and external Responsibility facilitator repositories.

You are a Rights holder, but you’re also a responsibility facilitator?

  • Maybe you're a major publisher of premium entertainment content, but also a trusted publisher of news – Tereo accepts fingerprints for both: have your valuable copyrighted material protected and be a facilitator for responsibility by submitting trusted news sources.

You are a Platform Owner, with user generated content contributions, but you also create original content for which you hold the rights.

  • Tereo allows you to query with fingerprints for contributed content, fulfilling social responsibility obligations, whilst also providing the ability to submit assets as a Rights holder and claim ownership.

How it works

Diagram showing how Tereo works: step 1 - user content upload and streaming

Step 1 User contribution

A user uploads or streams video to a social media platform for shared distribution online.

Diagram showing how Tereo works: step 2 - content fingerprint generation

Step 2 Fingerprinting

The platform generates a unique granular fingerprint of the uploaded video using Tereo’s technology.

Diagram showing how Tereo works: step 3 - fingerprint sent to library

Step 3 Library query

The platform sends the generated fingerprint along with related metadata to Tereo's central library of copyrighted and illegal material for verification.

Diagram showing how Tereo works: step 4 - fingerprint matching

Step 4 Verification

Tereo rapidly searches its reference libraries for fingerprint matches. When matches are verified, Tereo identifies a policy from the reference’s business rules and/or usage guidelines.

Diagram showing how Tereo works: step 5 - policy returned to online platform

Step 5 Policy action

Tereo then returns the policy to the requesting platform to take action.
