Music is already moving to the cloud, allowing music fans to access online music subscriptions and music lockers from computers, phones, televisions, and cars. The inevitable point at which this will become the predominant way in which the mainstream consumes music is approaching, and listeners will enjoy clear advantages as a result. However, messy metadata, huge music collections and diverse customer demands present huge challenges for music service providers. The Echo Nest's audio fingerprint, taste profiling, playlisting and contextual data give music services a deep understanding of their customers and content to deliver world class end-to-end cloud music experiences, while reducing licensing and data transport costs.
Today's on-demand music services and interactive radio services offer listeners millions of tracks, causing a need for technology capable of finding the right songs within large catalogs for particular users. The Echo Nest's playlisting technology leverages deep comprehension of music's cultural and sonic characteristics and the listener's musical taste to generate high-quality, personalized, musically-meaningful playlists and interactive radio stations.
The Echo Nest's Taste Profiles understand each music fan's unique tastes and other attributes such as adventurousness, diversity of music preferences, intensity of preference and even musical compatibility among listeners.
The Echo Nest's playlisting engine creates personalized radio stations based on any user, song, artist or "seed" playlist. In addition, all playlists can be automatically generated to comply with the digital complement for non-interactive webcasters in the United States.
The Echo Nest's data feeds deliver up-to-the-minute news, blog posts and reviews for over 2 million artists. Digital music fans want more than a static artist biography that never changes. Connect your users to the online music conversation about every artist.
The Echo Nest offers two kinds of audio fingerprints for a wide range of applications — scan & match for locker services, metadata cleanup, basic song identification and other applications.
By applying The Echo Nest's Taste Profiles, application developers can maintain an in-depth understanding of each end user's music activity and preference, enabling personalized recommendations, taste profiling and a wide range of social music applications. Developers can also access libraries and wrappers to easily create taste profiles from an end user's media library (iOS and Android), Facebook activity and even applying The Echo Nest's artist extract to mine music preferences from tweets and other text.
Music fan behavior has changed in well-documented ways — and with it, the art and science of charting the popularity of music. The Echo Nest's "Fanalytics" is a suite of music activity analytics tools and data to give customers a holistic understanding of music activity for enhanced music discovery, editorial and targeted advertising applications.
With a community of close to 20,000 music application developers and hundreds of apps on our platform, no other company in the world has more visibility into innovative music application development. The Echo Nest works with its enterprise customers to conceive, refine and develop industry-defining digital music experiences rooted in our customer's ROI goals and strategic objectives.
The Echo Nest Remix developer toolkit presents unprecedented ways to play with music, instead of just playing it. This is true interactive music — not just as a concept, or a buzzword, but as real technology that scales across millions of audio tracks, associated videos, and many potential applications. The Echo Nest Remix API identifies thousands of actionable events in every song, making it easy for any app developer to create rhythm games, remix apps and user-generated mash-ups with a minimum effort.
