RTL integrates Cyanite’s recommendation algorithms into its own production music library FAR MUSIC
The Mannheim-based technology company Cyanite enriches the in-house production music library FAR MUSIC of Mediengruppe RTL GmbH with its innovative algorithms for music analysis and recommendation. Cyanite’s AI will make it easier for editors and journalists to quickly and intuitively find the right music for their film clips. The Mediengruppe RTL GmbH is the largest customer so far on Cyanite’s mission to accompany music and media companies into the AI age.
Mannheim/Cologne, August 18th, 2020 – The Mediengruppe RTL GmbH is one of the largest German media companies. Part of which are the TV-Channels RTL, RTL II, VOX, and n-tv as well as the music publisher i2i Music, whose catalogue is available to all RTL editors for all types of use via the music platform FAR MUSIC.
With the help of the Cyanite deep learning technology, the music search on FAR MUSIC will be made easier and more intuitive. This will increase user-friendliness, ensure high-quality content, and reduce the costs for licensing third-party copyrights.
Specifically, RTL / i2i Music will use Cyanite’s algorithms for automatic music keywording and for detecting acoustic similarities in songs. In addition to musicological factors such as BPM or key signature, genre, mood, vocals, energy, and instruments are recognized and correspondingly indexed. Furthermore, RTL editors will be able to find similar-sounding pieces on FAR MUSIC via reference songs from YouTube or Spotify.
The Mediengruppe RTL GmbH is Cyanite’s largest customer to date. They join SWR, NEUBAU Music and Meisel Music, and the production music libraries Soundtaxi, Filmmusic.io and RipCue Music, who already use Cyanite’s technology.
Markus Schwarzer, co-founder, and CEO of Cyanite: “Having such a large and renowned company as RTL / i2i Music among our customers marks a milestone for us. It shows how more and more companies are relying on the new possibilities of artificial intelligence to optimize processes and take advantage of new business opportunities.“
