AdShare is a monetization and monitoring service for entertainment industry rights-holders. Providing services to Naxos of America, Inc., since 2008, AdShare leverages the ContentBridge management platform catalog the clients media and metadata and the content is checked for common errors that prevent monitization. AdShare's "Hawk" technology (Fast Audio Matching) identifies an average 40% of YouTube content that otherwise goes unidentified.
AdShare's engineers partnered with the University of Southern California, Media Communications Laboratory, to further develop Fast Audio Matching (FAM) technology in 2014. Using as little as a 15 second audio sample, FAM identifies and provides a confidence scale of 1 to N (N being a perfect match). On the USC team: Ph.D. students Harshad Kadu and Jian Li and the project was led by Professor C.C. Jay Kuo, Dean’s Professor of Electrical Engineering – Systems. Funding was provided by GoDigital Media Group.

The joint R&D team has continuously worked on system performance optimization to meet real-time processing requirements. The team also keeps developing a more advanced technique that handles sounds distorted by other methods such as pitch shifts, white noise, and instrument swaps.
