Over 150 music and video websites, ISPs, colleges & universities, CD & DVD replicators and other service providers use Audible Magic services to identify, protect, track and monetize music and video content. Using our patented fingerprint technology, content is identified as it is uploaded on websites, while it is being transmitted over peer-to-peer networks, and before replicators master new CDs or DVDs.
Audible Magic is the leading provider of fingerprint-based identification services. Our patented technology fingerprints the audio track using an acoustical profile of the musical work. This fingerprint is then matched to our master registry database of more than 7 million copyrighted works. Matching works even with different compression techniques, audio formats and codecs.
Using tools Audible Magic provides, customers take a fingerprint of an unknown piece of content. That fingerprint is then compared against Audible Magic’s Global Rights Registry for a match. When a match is made, meta data related to the content and a business rule for use of the content is returned in the response.
