Gracenote is about to release a new API that will allow anyone to build their own Pandora-like personalized online radio offering.
Annoyed by radio ads? You’re not alone, and you might get a break from new technology developed by Gracenote that could one day personalize radio advertising.
Music tech hackers just got another resource to play with: Gracenote is opening up its 130 million-song database as part of its developer program.
Media data specialist Gracenote wants to show you ads that matter to what you watch and who you are. To do so, the company is looking to embed video recognition and ad swapping technology right into the TV set. First trials are set to start 2013.
Gracenote has acquired video content recognition specialist Bulldog United to add its technology to its own content recognition platform. The combination of audio and video content recognition should help to tell apps on your iPad or smart phone exactly what’s happening on your TV.
