Cugate developed a patented technology to watermark music and video in a non-audible way. This allows everyone to completely identify music by the watermark instead of untrusted and easy manipulable metadata (as ID3). Cugates database stores trusted metadata for every watermarked media, which allows specific software to display correct metadata and even unlimited additional information (as artist links, buy links, tour dates, etc.).
Cugate developed a patented technology to extract unique footprints from audio and video material, which will be used to identify music. This technique is used for media, which are not proceeded by Cugates watermark technology to provide the same features as for watermarked media. The extracted footprint information can even be used to find similar music based on several parameters like speed, bass, etc. - the search is fully based on generated values, no human data mining is needed.
Cugate has developed different software based on its patented watermark and footprint technology. This contains standalone players for iOS and Android as well as widgets to enhance PC players with Cugate features.
Cugate has developed a variable and modular widget to enhance the feature list of other players with Cugates own patented and astonishing features.
Cugate has used its huge experiences in music player features and their own patented technology to create great music applications for iOS and android supporting smart phones and tablets as well as smartTVs.
Cugate is developing professional algorithms for object and text recognition in pictures and videos. It can be used to present further information related to the recognized text / object.
