Audioburst Launches Audioburst Studios for Apps and Website Integration



Audioburst announced the launch of Audioburst Studio, a quick, free, and easy-to-use SaaS platform that developers and non-developers alike can use to integrate the Audioburst experience – short form audio content playlists filled with the best moments from podcast and talk radio into their websites and apps.

After logging into the Audioburst Studio users are presented with a simple 4-step wizard to help them create an integratable audio player into their apps and websites. The platform offers pre-built playlists, as well as “Build Your Own” option, letting users take advantage of short-form audio-talk clips or “bursts” from more than 4,000 radio stations or podcasts, and 100 different topics and categories, including sports, news, entertainment, business and local traffic and weather.

Audioburst’s uniquely curated audio content is proven to increase users’ time spent and experience satisfaction on partner apps and devices, and this comes at a time when 200M smart speakers are expected in-home by the end of 2019 and the interest-in and creation-of podcast content is exploding.

Studio-generated players and playlists can be integrated into Android and iOS apps via SDK, as well as to web and mobile sites using a simple javascript embedded code or APIs. Users will be given access to powerful analytics capabilities that provide insights including number of listeners, number of bursts played, listening duration, and distribution by device and location.

Those who embed the player will also be given the ability to monetize an aggressive share of Audioburst’s revenue. In the coming months, Audioburst will release an update to Studio that includes Amazon Alexa and Google Home skill integrations.

This news comes on the heels of a $10M+ pre-Series B round including partnerships with Hyundi Motor Company for their new in-car experience and Dentsu, for a custom voice content ad solution, both expected to come to fruition in the coming year. Audioburst also has partnerships with major brands including Bose, Samsung, Harman, Bytedance, and others who have long understood the benefits of providing users with audio-based content in a world that’s becoming increasingly screen-independent.


Blubrry Podcasting Partners with Audioburst



Blubrry Podcasting and Audioburst announced an evolutionary partnership that will allow Blubrry hosting customers to have access to Audioburst’s suite of tools and the Audioburst library of searchable voice “bursts.” This library uses technology to listen, understand, segment, and index the content to be searched and generate new cross-platform distribution.

“Our mission is to empower podcasters and radio professionals with a robust solution for monetization, distribution, and discovery,” said Amir Hirsh, co-founder, and CEO of Audioburst. “The integration of our Audioburst Creators platform gives Blubrry thousands of creative community members of the unmatched tools to transcribe, increase exposure and earn money.”

Blubrry hosting customers will be able to obtain full transcripts, create short clips called “bursts” of their audio or video content and then share those bursts on social media platforms. This extends the life of their content using modern AI programming to highlight specific segments that can further earn Blubrry creators revenue and listenership.

“This partnership with Audioburst is exciting for our Blubrry customers as I’ve been a big fan of their technology for some time,” said Todd Cochrane, Blubrry CEO. “The audio bursts, automated transcripts and indexing of audio content will allow Blubrry customers to reach new listeners and engage with a wider audience.”

Blubrry hosting customers can sign up for Audioburst free within their podcast dashboard and have their personalized content created within minutes. Bursts, transcriptions and new content can be found on any one of Audiobursts distribution platforms where users specify topics and categories for results.


AudioBurst Announced AudioBurst Search



AudioBurst develops technologies and products that take spoken-word media to the next level. They believe that auditory media will continue to play an important role in society and in the future. Their vision is to digitally organize that mass of audio information on a global scale.

AudioBurst announced a new product called AudioBurst Search. It is a search engine for finding, discovering, listening to, and sharing the latest news over audio. It accesses the world’s largest library of live and pre-recorded podcasts and radio simply by searching a keyword.

If you used AudioBurst’s skills on Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, then you will see that AudioBurst Search works exactly the same way. Only now, its available on web and mobile-optimized web.

AudioBurst Search is one more step in the direction towards our mission to organize the world’s audio information. We’re excited to be able to offer the world’s content creators and publishers one more channel to serve their audio content, and we can’t wait to see how you find ways to interact with our new search engine.

Each 1-3 minute burst of audio is stored in AudioBurst’s content library. Those bursts are not only readily retrievable through AudioBurst Search, but also major search engines like Google, Bing, and Safari. It is possible to come across one of their clips while searching on Google for news on your favorite topics.

In addition, AudioBurst has something called Podcaster Pro. It is an RSS Based Automatic Audio Transcription service that is free to use.  Enter your RSS Podcast URL Feed into the AudioBurst website.  AudioBurst automatically pulls your last podcast and transcribes and extracts the best audio highlights based on topics.
