Next-gen Gracenote-powered infotainment systems gear up for connected cars and autonomous vehicles

EMERYVILLE, Calif., April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gracenote®, a Nielsen company (NYSE: NLSN), is now featured in more than 100 million cars globally, powering intuitive, personalized and safer music experiences for drivers and passengers around the world. As an early pioneer in in-car infotainment, Gracenote has delivered cutting-edge data and technology solutions that have revolutionized the way drivers and passengers discover and connect with the music they love for nearly 15 years.

Today, Gracenote powers the infotainment experience for practically every automaker on the planet, delivering music data and imagery that lets drivers safely connect with all of their music on the open road. Gracenote's industry-leading music recognition technology identifies music in real-time from a driver's radio, mobile device and streaming sources and serves up relevant song, artist and album information and cover art to the on-screen display. Gracenote also creates the phonetic data powering voice recognition systems in millions of vehicles, letting drivers safely navigate music using simple voice commands.

"Gracenote has transformed the in car listening experience for more than a decade and enabled new features like 'hands-free' voice commands for music search," said Brian Hamilton, General Manager of Auto and Music for Gracenote. "With the arrival of connected cars, our data becomes even more critical for a safe and consistent way to browse, discover and experience music across terrestrial and satellite radio, as well as streaming music services."

Gracenote's latest innovations are transforming how drivers experience terrestrial and digital radio, providing music metadata, artist imagery and radio station logos and formats to help drivers navigate the dial and discover new stations to love. In addition, Gracenote Dynamic EQ is a new advanced audio technology that automatically adjusts the car's equalizer (EQ) settings for the specific song being played. So, if you are jamming to Tupac, then start grooving to Miles Davis, Gracenote Dynamic EQ identifies the song and adjusts the treble, bass and other settings in real-time, delivering more impactful sound that enriches how drivers experience their daily commute.
