This paper describes an audio fingerprinting system to search for jingles and advertisements in broadcast streams, using a fast bit-pattern matching algorithm. The system is described and evaluated using broadcast television streams. The results show that the system is extremely efficient and robust in situations where the audio items to locate do not overlap in time or suffer from time distortions such as compression or expansion.
