Rights holders and artists are losing money each and every year.

Current audio identification technologies and systems are based on older technology and are not 100 per cent accurate. On global music sales millions are left unreported and untraceable because of inaccurate identification technology, poor reporting and inaccurate MetaData.

With the SonicKey™ reporting and understanding of all music use knows no boundaries. The SonicKey™ can deliver and enable reporting and data across all platforms with total accuracy, including broadcast, social media, sync, advertising, TV, film and – with SonicVenue – all in venue use. With a unique SonicKey each piece of music can also be tracked and reported against single version of the truth (SVOT) MetaData.

In addition, SonicData’s platform also uses fingerprinting, employing sophisticated machine learning to improve its efficiency and effectiveness.
