Nareos, the pioneering digital content commerce solutions provider, today announced the launch of PeerMind™, a sophisticated online p2p data mining service. PeerMind™ provides detailed reports, online chart data and custom research based on 24/7 monitoring of major p2p networks.
Nareos' PeerMind™ uses state-of-the-art technology to provide profound analysis of global p2p file sharing activities, categorized by media type, geography and protocols. Custom research of digital content, tailored towards the needs of various industry stakeholders, is available for purchase, answering the ever-important questions of "what is hot?" from songs, movies, audio books, computer games, ringtones, software and additional digital content. PeerMind™ (peermind.com) can also produce popularity reports comparing genres (for example horror versus romantic film downloads) and also build correlation matrices by analyzing the download patterns of particular users - both services providing a clear indication of consumer tastes.
PeerMind™ registers millions of file-sharing events and publishes free weekly charts of top P2P songs, movies, software titles, video games and ringtones. An additional free web-service is the 'band race' charts, where users can compare the popularity of 5 artists of their choice.
Nareos currently publishes data about eDonkey2000 and Gnutella networks, used by file-sharing programs such as eMule, eDonkey, Shareaza, LimeWire, BearShare, Ares and dozens of others. Additional protocols like FastTrack and BitTorrent will be added soon.
With billions of files downloaded each month, the file-sharing industry is the fastest growing outlet for entertainment fans worldwide and hence the most important source of trend information for record labels, moviemakers, software publishers, and other industry players.
Alexander Lazovsky, CEO and Founder of Nareos, said: "We are thrilled to announce the launch of PeerMind™. P2P networks offer great insight into current consumer trends, which is becoming invaluable marketing knowledge for the content industry. Monitoring everything from Harry Potter to Madonna and Battlefield 2, PeerMind™ doesn't miss a download. This marks a significant step forward towards our vision of becoming the most 'complete' service provider of digital content in the world."
Nareos does not collect the IP addresses of individual file sharers, and the company will never do so. Internet is a global village, and Nareos respects the privacy of the fellow netizens.
