The third-party audit and validation of the SureWaves Spot TV Network by Hansa Research will cover random physical verification of technology deployment at channel studios and online audit and validation of SureWaves ADEX logs with live monitoring of channels.
Hansa Research executive director Srinivasan Raman said, “We are very excited to be a part of this endeavour and we believe in the potential of new-age media platforms.

To further increase the trust and confidence levels, we felt that opening of the technology behind SureWaves Spot TV Network to third-party audit and validation by a reputed research agency like Hansa is a logical step forward. The industry we operate in has many unorganised aggregators and we felt this could be one required step to create gold standard for our offering. This will also help our channel partners better understand our commitment and vision towards the industry.”
