Shazam Amplifies Music Database by a Third - FierceWireless

Shazam is a service that identifies music. Initially a user would dial a Shazam number, hold the phone to the radio or other source and the system would then identify the track. Now Shazam have an iPhone and other clients.

Shazam have added an additional 2 million tracks to their database covering more diverse North American, Asian and European music.

Shazam uses very clever algorithms to compare the music playing with segments in their database.

As Shazam have to have all the music in digital format, they're also a very good source for licensing a digital music collection for download sites and on-line digital jukeboxes.
