Gracenote touches hundreds of millions of music fans and TV viewers everyday. Gracenote is the industry standard for music and video recognition and is supported by the largest source of music and video metadata on the planet, featuring descriptions of more than 130 million tracks and TV listings for 28 countries. The database receives more than 500 million queries everyday and more than 15 billion every month. If you measured Gracenote against a search engine, we would rank among the world’s biggest.
With more than 350 employees and growing, Gracenote has offices in Tokyo, Munich, Berlin, Seoul and Taipei with worldwide headquarters in Emeryville, Calif.
When you connect your smart phone or USB in a car, Gracenote makes finding your favorite music easy with Album Cover Art and enhanced voice recognition. When you are playing music on your iPhone, Gracenote helps power song recommendations. And when you are sitting on your couch, Gracenote TV listings and smart recommendations show you what’s on tonight, and help you discover new programs to watch.
Gracenote is a wholly owned, independent subsidiary of the Sony Corporation of America (SCA). In “non-legal” speak this means we are owned by Sony, but operate as an independent company.
We work closely with other Sony companies, including Sony Electronics, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Sony Entertainment Network. We are featured in millions of Sony products. However, we also have the flexibility to work other entertainment leaders, including Apple, Google, Amazon and Ford.
Gracenote has a number of resources available for customers, developers and even consumers. If you have a question about iTunes, Ford Sync or other Gracenote powered consumer products and services, check our Support page. If you are a Gracenote customer looking for the latest SDK or documentation, visit our Customer Dev Zone. If you are an App developer looking for access to an API or Gracenote Hacks, check out our Gracenote Developer portal.
