    Goals / Remit

    Audible Magic is a US-based technology company with offices in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. It has been a pioneer in automated content recognition using its proprietary digital audio fingerprinting technology, for which it currently holds over 30 US and European patents. Audible Magic aims to commercialize this technology by providing automated content recognition technology to the technology and media sectors, for purposes such as the licensing of copyright content, audio descriptions of film and TV for the blind, the prevention of copyright infringement, synchronization and interactivity with mobile devices, and broadcasting services such as subscriber authentication and dynamic ad insertion.

    Main EU files targeted

    Audible Magic has in the past responded to requests from policy makers for information about our technology and services, and will continue to do so in future. We are currently following the Draft Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market with the aim of providing interested parties with honest and unbiased information about content recognition technologies and their application.
