ACRCloud, a Beijing-based B2B solution provider of automatic content recognition (ACR), has provided ACR technology for Cartoon Network’s MagiMobile, an immersive app that expands the vast storytelling universe of the original series Mighty Magiswords.
Mighty Magiswords follows the adventures of Prohyas and Vambre, a sibling team of “Warriors for Hire” who embark on heroic quests using outrageously funny swords called magiswords. MagiMobile is designed to mimic the main characters’ devices and empowers users to build their own massive collection of magiswords, just like the heroes in the show. Mighty Magiswords and MagiMobile are currently available in the United States and Asia, with the global rollout continuing throughout 2017. Cartoon Network has also greenlit a season two order of the hit comedy series.
The ACR feature of MagiMobile uses TV audio cues to add Magiswords to a fan’s collection. While watching an episode of Mighty Magiswords on television, a user can tap “Collect” to make MagiMobile start listening. Once the app recognizes which episode it’s listening to, it rewards the user with a magisword from that very episode. Additionally, Cartoon Network recently announced the new mobile game, Surely You Quest, where fans can use the swords they collected in MagiMobile for gameplay.
MagiMobile is now available to download for free on the Apple App Store, Google Play and the Amazon App Store. Viewers in the United States can watch new episodes of Mighty Magiswords on Cartoon Network every Friday and anytime, anywhere on the Cartoon Network app.
