Discover, manage and enjoy digital music across multiple platforms and devices
Today, consumers expect complete control of their music – immediate access to the songs that match their mood, suggestions for albums they might like, and information, images and audio samples for the artist performing now. They enjoy the discovery experience itself – and they demand seamless media delivery and integration with their digital entertainment lifestyles. With Rovi Music, consumers gain all of this and more.
Rovi Music covers 3 million album releases and 30 million tracks worldwide – from popular hits and cult favorites to minor works and classical masterpieces.
Unlike other music data offerings, Rovi Music goes beyond basic music descriptions to include editorial data, such as biographies, reviews, and related content. Extensive music search and discovery capabilities as well as rich commerce support tools allow consumers to more easily discover, manage and enjoy digital music across multiple platforms and music devices.
Rovi Music allows online stores, portals, social networking sites, service providers and mobile, PC and embedded application developers to differentiate their offerings, increase usage and drive consumption. And, with the Rovi ID - an industry-standard media identifier - you can create valuable synergy with a wide range of partners.
Rovi's music metadata is built on an agile data management infrastructure designed to evolve with industry and customer requirements, including expansion into new countries. There are separate Rovi Music data sets for North America, UK and EU countries. These three music data sets share a common music database structure, so you don't have to go through the effort of deploying and maintaining different music database structures for various countries.
