What is a clock number?
A clock number is given to a commercial to identify a particular version and it is unique to a particular
product.
The clock number is made up of 15 characters. For example: AMV/BTBB001/030
AMV – this represents either the creative agency or the production house
BT – in this example the product is British Telecom
BB – the product is broadband
001 – is the version number of the broadband commercial
030 – represents the time length of the commercial, in this example 30 seconds
The clock number is given to the commercial by the production house or creative agency that produces
the commercial. They are responsible for sending the final version of the commercial to Clearcast for
approval. A digital buyer would contact the production house for the latest clock number(s) for the
commercial. Please note the VoD creative needs to match the clock number exactly, a linear clock number
cannot be used for a VoD commercial if it is not identical.
