Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. Expands Commercial License to Shazam Entertainment Limited for Fingerprinting and Meta Data
Jun 26 15
Destiny Media Technologies Inc. announced that the initial trial license of fingerprinting and meta data to Shazam Entertainment Limited, has been expanded into a full commercial license. Under the new 3 year agreement, Destiny delivers real time fingerprints and meta data to Shazam from tracks on participating labels in the Play MPE® system. To accomplish this quickly and efficiently, Shazam's fingerprint technology was integrated into the Play MPE® infrastructure, so the whole transfer is completely automated. Due to the fact that new tracks in Play MPE® are typically pre-release, automated fingerprint deliveries from Play MPE® are very timely. Further, the Play MPE® integration is a reliable and efficient way to fingerprint large catalogs of fast moving music, automating an otherwise very manual process at both ends of the supply chain.
