Music Story was present at the last edition of the show Radio. A very dynamic show, which together over 4,000 people around important issues as the digitization of radio while in aspects of content production and financing.
It took place in a European context advanced on the new digital channels (RNT / ID / DAB +), it was able to perceive a real concern of enrichment metadata (such as RTL2 Interactive Timeline, out a week before the show).
Music Story asserts itself at the show, as a source of reference metadata, more and more used and available in multiple contexts (as in automation software Zenon).
The company has also demonstrated the possibilities offered by its API, integrating its data in the live video of the event, managed by the company Broadcast Associates (for each title issued, an incrustation on the live recording of the show radio tray, Cf. see pictures below)
Fabrice Gauthier, founder of Broadcast Partners, discusses the concept of radio-vision, which combines the image and audio:
Illustration of the use of metadata Music Story in live video:
Music Story Pro API gives access to the partner links for recording object. As a Reminder, a recording corresponds to a single record of a title, recognized by an ISRC.
Links and partners IDs allow you to generate links purchase or listen to a partner (Deezer, Myxer, Qobuz …), or use the API partner in addition to more advanced features (playlist generation for example).
The API more than 4 947 420 recordings with ISRC.
Music Story launches a series of connectors especially designed for professionals. The first of them : Artist-Title has been posted, it is particularly for the media.
This is a tracks search engine (with albums and artists) using an artist + title string, which maximizes:
- the result despite a field of research of poor quality
- the access time for a title
- associated data returned in a single query, to avoid multiple API access
This connector allows for example to access the original albums cover from the title of a radio playlist.
It returns directly to the main data tracks, albums and artists, such as: the label of the album, the nationality of the artist or the title ISRC. It returns directly to the main data tracks, albums and artists, such as : the label of the album, the nationality of the artist or the title ISRC. Also, the request gives their IDs that allow complete access to additional data such as photos of the artist or download links a title (Itunes, Amazon MP3, …)
To illustrate the use of Artist-title connector, here is an example on the title “All the same” artist Stromae:
Here now, the same request with the title misspelled “All the same” :
This connector not only returns a single title, but all the titles with greater than 60% score. This result is sorted by decreasing score.
Special connectors are not available for free, you must purchase a subscription pro or enterprise to use. Do not hesitate to contact from developers.music-story.com/contact.
The next blog post will be a study of the connector on the real streams playlists radios.
