Audioburst Launches Audio On-Demand API with $6.7M in Series A Funding

Jun 13, 2017

Audioburst, an AI-powered audio content platform, announced the launch of its cross-platform API along with a $6.7 million Series A round of financing. The round was led by Advanced Media Inc., a speech recognition technology company in Japan, with participation from additional investors including Flint Capital, 2B-Angels, and Mobileye investors consortium. Additionally, Dan Sacher, former SVP at Viacom, has joined Audiobust as its Head of Content Partnerships.

Audioburst is aiming to change the way people consume audio content in a connected world by automating the process of indexing, organizing, and discovering audio segments in real-time. Audioburst listens to millions of minutes of live and prerecorded audio content each day, transforming them into searchable bursts wrapped with rich metadata.

User profiles, or Listening Identities, learn and adapt to each user based on their unique consumption patterns and preferences. The new API will allow developers to tap into the world’s largest growing library of audio content and add personalized audio feeds, searchable audio libraries, and real-time audio notifications to apps across the web, mobile, voice-activated IoT devices, and in-car entertainment systems.
