I’m glad to announce that TrustedAudio.com opens its doors for beta-testing.
TrustedAudio (TA) is a professional web-based tool that provides an easy and reliable way to share, deliver, and distribute audio files securely by means of watermarking and digital signing.
At this stage, public registration is closed, but you can ask for invite by leaving your request via the Contacts form on the TA website or just sending mail with request to mailbox /at/ trustedaudio /dot/ com.
VRT (http://www.vrt.be), The Flemish Radio and Television Broadcasting Organization of Belgium, licenses AWT technology to incorporate it within its broadcast monitoring system.
AWT2 0.11.0 is a major technology update.
– (decoder) redesigned and rewritten watermark detection engine; watermark search in non-watermarked audio is now 7-10 times faster, without compromising the reliability of watermark extraction.
– (decoder, CLI) -stop_on_found command line parameter has been modified, it now allows specifying -stop_on_found=N to stop after N slices with found watermarks.
– (decoder) -fast_scan mode is now more reliable
– various speed improvements and optimizations
AWT1 1.2.7 features several bug-fixes.
Inflyteapp (http://inflyteapp.com) a mobile music promo platform, and CBT Nuggets (http://cbtnuggets.com), a leading video training provider, license AWT audio watermarking technology of audiowatermarking.info for using in their digital content delivery platforms.
AudioWatermarking.info announces release of AWT4 – an audio triggering, signalling and watermarking solution providing time-precise “digital stamping” with high data rate. The technology allows placing/extracting capacious digital codes in audio streams at precise time places to trigger time- and data-specific events with high timing accuracy (~30ms).
AWT2 0.10.03 is a major technology upgrade. AWT2 now natively supports Dual-Layer watermarking. Two independent watermarks can be embedded into the same audio stream at different stages of audio content distribution. Dual-layer watermarking is available in both AWT2 CLI tools and AWT2 SDK.
Full AWT2 changes log.
I published an open paper that describes a little crazy (but seems to be novel) idea of combining digital sound and QR codes together. The paper briefly describes a new approach that brings quite effective and easy data hiding and watermarking technique to general public through the use of QR codes (or similar bar-codes).
Read the paper: Alex Radzishevsky, Visual Domain Audio Watermarking (VDAW) and Spectral Barcode Audio Watermarking (SBAW), February 2014.
New AWT2 SDK (0.10.00) is a complete rework of the core encoding engine. It now supports real-time live audio streams encoding with low latency.
– Fully rewritten encoder code, backwards/forwards compatible with older decoders
– faster encoding, dramatically reduced encoder memory consumption
– completely new cross-platform SDK with real-time, low latency live audio stream encoding functionality
– fully thread safe SDK
– improved signal limiter with configurable attack/release times
The new SDK is available now.
