GRACENOTE has reached a milestone with the announcement that the music recognition technology has been installed in the in-car entertainment system of its 50 millionth car this month. The service, which offers song identification technology for several leading automotive entertainment platforms, has been integrated into cars for the past ten years.
President STEPHEN WHITE said, "This is an important milestone for GRACENOTE, but is also significant for the broader music industry. Our technology and data power in-car entertainment experiences in virtually every region of the world and point to a larger trend of car owners wanting smart, connected systems on the road. Our goal is to provide a future-proof platform that delivers on the promise of today's infotainment systems, and is also well positioned for tomorrow's entertainment needs."
The company plans to preview its next-generation infotainment system for the connected car at CES 2014 in LAS VEGAS next month.
