Audio fingerprinting technology to be integrated into Xperi’s DTS Connected Radio platform for vehicles around the world
CALABASAS, CA (JANUARY 23, 2018) – Xperi Corporation (Nasdaq: XPER) (“Xperi”), a global leader in innovative technology solutions that enable extraordinary experiences for people around the world and ACRCloud, a Beijing-based audio fingerprinting service provider, have announced a partnership to integrate ACRCloud music recognition technology into the DTS Connected Radio platform. Through this partnership, DTS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi, will use ACRCloud’s technology to identify the music playing on radio stations in vehicles around the world.
The DTS Connected Radio platform combines both over-the-air analog/digital AM/FM radio content with IP-delivered content, creating an innovative AM/FM experience in vehicles. DTS Connected Radio receives metadata, such as artist and song title, directly from local radio broadcasters which is then paired with IP-delivered content, creating an engaging in-vehicle broadcast radio experience. ACRCloud’s technology will further enhance this global system by detecting and delivering additional music metadata into vehicles for a more user-friendly content into vehicles.
“We are thrilled to integrate ACRCloud’s music recognition service into DTS Connected Radio as another feature option for automotive OEMs to ensure that the best broadcast radio experience is occurring in the vehicle,” said Jeff Jury, general manager, automotive, Xperi. “The addition of ACRCloud to the DTS Connected Radio platform is another facet of our broad solution, creating a unique global radio solution for both consumers and car companies.”
“We are excited to partner with Xperi to enrich the experience of vehicle radio listening with our technology,” said Tony Li, co-founder of ACRCloud. “The DTS hybrid radio projects are the future of radio consumption in cars and we’re proud to be a part of their evolving ecosystem of solutions.”
