Below are a list of terms and their definitions used by Audible Magic:
Audible Magic Software Developer Kit (SDK) - Audible Magic's command line utility that is used to lookup a local media file against Audible Magic's reference databases.
False Negative - An incorrect identification, where the ID Response does not report a match on a work that has been registered.
False Positive - An incorrect identification, where the ID Response reports a positive match, but identifies unknown file incorrectly.
FFMPEG - "A complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video." Used by Audible Magic to handle multiple different audio and video codecs. Find more information here: https://ffmpeg.org/
ID Request - Used in conjunction with the SDK, is the lookup request for a local unknown media file to Audible Magic internal servers that is sent over HTTP. An ID Response will follow depicting whether the unknown media file was a match or not.
ID Response - Used in conjunction with the SDK, is the lookup response from Audible Magic's internal systems as to whether the local unknown media file matches with any registered content. An ID Request must be sent first in order to receive an ID Response.

Lookup - Used in conjunction with the SDK, where part of the unknown file's audio stream is tested against Audible Magic reference database to see if it matches with anything that has been registered.
Type 3s Lookup - A lookup type that assumes the beginning of the unknown file matches at least the first 30 consecutive seconds of the master recording, and that the two recordings are offset from each other by no more than 2 seconds.
Type 3 Lookup - A lookup type where the unknown file is shorter than master recording, but will identify any 30 second clip of a master recording contained in the unknown file.
Type 4 Lookup - A lookup type that will discover if any 21 second portion of any master recording is present within an unknown file. This approach is used when the application must detect the presence of even very small portions of any registered master recording.
