Trickplay and Audible Magic today announced a technology partnership that will make Audible Magic’s industry-leading automated content recognition (ACR) solutions an integral part of Trickplay’s digital TV software platform. Based on Audible Magic’s patented digital fingerprint content identification technology, the company’s SmartID and SmartSync solutions enable consumer electronics devices to provide more engaging content and offer other outstanding user experiences.
The Audible Magic solutions enhance Trickplay’s platform in two specific ways. SmartID, for example, enables developers to recognize content that is being played, whether the content is delivered from terrestrial broadcast, cable, Internet streaming, Blu-ray, or another source. And SmartSync synchronizes events to the media being watched with frame-to-frame accuracy.
