Sound recognition software company Audio Analytic today announced a new strategic partnership with audio software and hardware development consultancy StreamUnlimited. Under the terms of the agreement, Audio Analytic’s ai3 sound recognition software will be integrated with StreamUnlimited’s StreamSDK.

“We are highly impressed by Audio Analytic’s best-in-class ai3 sound recognition software.”

StreamUnlimited was spun out of Philips in 2005. It provides software solutions, hardware design and professional services to many of the world’s leading audio Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). In recognition of the tremendous opportunity sound recognition represents in the Smart Home market, StreamUnlimited will provide their customers with an SDK with Audio Analytic’s ai3 technology integrated as standard. The StreamSDK enables audio manufacturers to easily add streaming capability, and now also sound recognition.

Audio Analytic’s technology enables devices in the smart home to recognise generic sounds, opening up a range of new applications for smarter living which can be tailored to the individual audio OEM’s requirements. Use-cases for the technology are varied, including a connected sound system playing pre-recorded audio messages to deter intruders if a window breaks, or playing lullabies whenever a baby cries in the night to help parents get a restful sleep. Software updates to the SDK can enable new use-cases to be addressed with additional generic categories of sound recognition

Chris Mitchell, CEO of Audio Analytic said, “We’re delighted to be partnering with StreamUnlimited to bring our innovative sound recognition software to their audio OEM customers. StreamUnlimited have unrivalled experience in developing and optimising audio devices and the team immediately realised that our ai3 sound recognition technology unlocks significant new product opportunities for their extensive customer base.”

Markus Rutz, CTO of StreamUnlimited said, “We are highly impressed by Audio Analytic’s best-in-class ai3 sound recognition software. It enables a wide range of innovative new applications for audio products in the Smart Home to address. Enabling smarter living is increasingly an important point of product differentiation for the end user. We’re looking forward to helping our OEM customers stand out from the crowd with compelling new use-cases based around Audio Analytic’s generic sound recognition technology.”
