HAND (Human & Digital) is the first Talent ID built for the business requirements of Hollywood & sports. By identifiing just three (3) things well – Legal Entity Humans, Licensed Virtual Humans, and Fictional Characters – HAND provides the interoperable Talent ID the industry needs for historical, present, and future usages of Talent Identity.
HAND is the first human identifier usage ever for DOI.org (Digital Object Identifier). Founded in 1997, the DOI is an ISO Standard, with registration agencies around the world, operating the DOI ID Handle system in the research, sciences, entertainment, and built-environment industries. With more than 1.3 billion ID resolutions per month, the DOI Handle system is designed for reliability and persistence.
HAND is the first company to establish Citation-Backed Notability™ for commercial purposes. Working with data experts from film, TV, sports, and music, HAND has developed a methodology to quantitatively determine “what makes talent notable?” from multiple verifiable sources around the world.
Working with data experts from film, TV, sports, and music, HAND has developed a new SaaS-based, B2B focused Talent ID standard, built for the performing arts & sports industry’s talent identity needs of 2023 and beyond.
Currently, HAND is in Beta, with an invitation-only, B2B Beta Partner Program already underway. If you are interested, please sign up on the form below.
