The music streaming experience is being reinvented one listener at a time, and the implications for the music industry are significant. Super Hi-Fi has found a way to bring the most personalized aspects of radio to streaming at scale using its Magic Stitch technology. This includes music tracks, audio liners, ad spots, sonic logos, and audio branding, allowing listeners to enjoy a completely personalized experience, evolving in real-time - serving millions of music listeners, every day.
“The future of streaming music is more than just playlists of songs with long gaps of silence,” says Co-Founder and CEO, Zack Zalon. “We’re using advanced technology to create very human experiences... tapestries of emotional listening that drives engagement, loyalty, and love. Our goal is to delight our customers and their listeners, and this milestone certainly indicates that we’re on the right track.”
Super Hi-Fi is a suite of AI technologies designed for digital music and audio experience providers across a variety of use-cases including music, sonic branding, artist content, audio advertising, news & podcast snippets, or virtually any other kind of audio content a service may want. The technology perfectly blends and dynamically delivers this content directly into streaming music experiences, all in real time. The Super Hi-Fi platform consists of a layer of cloud services, APIs, and components/reference implementations for major mobile and desktop environments. The results are highly personalized, scalable listening experiences which have been almost inconceivable until now.
In December 2019, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted a new patent to Super Hi-Fi for its AI-powered capability. This is Super Hi-Fi's second patent granted in 3 months and applies to capabilities in its Broadcast Production Engine (BPE). It covers the selection of appropriate digital audio content elements as well as the sequencing, overlapping and mixing of those elements. The AI-powered technology in the BPE gathers and curates audio content based on user or brand preference and automatically "stitches together" bespoke audio segments that sound as though an audio professional spent hours in a recording studio to create them.
Super Hi-Fi currently fuels enhanced experiences for Sonos Radio, iHeartMedia, Peloton, and Napster and has partnerships with Universal Music Group, The Associated Press, and TargetSpot.
