An Audio Watermark Decoder for Web Browsers?
They said it couldn’t be done
So we did it
Web browsers can now pick up Intrasonics audio codes
hidden in ambient TV, radio and streamed content

Web Browser SDK100% JavaScript - No Plugins Required

We have now made it possible for any website or webapp to detect and decode our audio watermark codes embedded in TV, radio, streamed media, music and many other kinds of ambient audio.

Our new Web SDK is a 100% JavaScript library that can be loaded into any web page or HTML5 webapp just like any other JavaScript library. There is no need for users to install any plugins.

For now, our Web SDK works in these browsers:

Mac OSX
• Chrome
• Firefox
• Opera
• Vivaldi

Windows 10
• Chrome
• Firefox
• Edge
• Opera
• Vivaldi

iOS
(none yet)

Android
• Chrome
• Firefox

Windows Phone
(none yet)

Why not Safari? Because Apple have not yet made the Safari browser on either OSX or iOS compliant with the JavaScript Audio Standard. Yes, we are also a bit mystified by that.

ApplicationsSo what use is this?

It means that you can bridge the gap between broadcast content on TV or radio (etc.) and laptops or desktops that people use to browse their favourite websites while they watch TV or listen to the radio.

And it means you can deliver an interactive experience to an audience using standard web technologies and without the complexity of publishing and maintaining native apps.

Advertising

Our audio watermark codes are being used increasingly in TV and radio ads. Our web browser decoder can enable mass traffic websites to detect exposure of their users to ads aired on TV and radio.

Participation

It’s becoming more difficult to convince users to install special apps just to interact with a TV show or a televised special event. It’s much easier to persuade audiences to go to a web URL.

Play-Along

For TV gameshows, developing play-along apps is quite easy but expensive. It’s even easier and not at all expensive to create a synchronised play-along experience in HTML5.
