Have you ever watched an interview on TV and wondered how much of the real interview you are actually viewing?
This app helps prevent TV networks from editing/clipping/re-ordering interviews. Some networks will modify videos in post-production to push an agenda or change a narrative.
* How does it work?
An interviewee places a phone in frame, with the ClipGuard app running. The app displays:
1. A timer that counts up (every 1s). This exposes editing and re-ordering.
2. A bar chart with data points (at said interval) created by a Pseudorandom number generator (PRNG). These data points make it harder for post-production replication of app AND give authentication to the sequence after the video airs.
Once you hit the Stop button, a QR code will be generated (but not shown). Share it someplace safe (like your email).
**After airing**, interviewee shares a QR code. This QR code can be scanned by viewers in the ClipGuard app to reproduce exactly the same sequence, at the same time, as when the interview occurred.
Bug fix in the replay sequence
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
