Have you ever watched an interview on TV and wondered how much of the real interview you are actually watching?
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.
An interviewee places a phone in frame, with the ClipGuard app running. The app displays:
- A timer that counts up (every 1s). This exposes editing and re-ordering.
- 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.
**After airing**, interviewee shares a QR code. This QR code can be scanned in the ClipGuard app to reproduce exactly the same sequence, at the same time, as when the interview occurred.
