BBG Expands Its Reach with SoundCloud

The Broadcasting Board of Governors announced a new strategic partnership with leading audio platform SoundCloud, adding hundreds of hours of audio programming weekly for users to access worldwide. The move is expected to expand the BBG's online audience by introducing its radio broadcasts to a new, widely-available mobile platform and to content-sharing through social media. From Khmer to Kurdish, content in more than 40 languages from all five broadcasters of the BBG will be made available through the platform. Users will be able to find BBG content by searching SoundCloud for either their favorite program or a broadcaster's name. Listeners will also be able to connect directly on SoundCloud's waveform with other users who share similar interests.

Getty Images Announces Partnership with SoundCloud Ltd

Getty Images, Inc. and SoundCloud Ltd. announced a collaboration that unites the originality of audio content in SoundCloud's community of more than 20 million registered users with Getty Images' global distribution channels and expertise in licensing digital media. The partnership provides media, advertisers, designers and creatives with the ability to license fresh, unique and original audio and music through Getty Images Music the moment it is created. In addition, the partnership removes traditional barriers in licensing music for visual projects. The partnership provides a seamless sync licensing solution for businesses as well as a new commercial licensing opportunity for SoundCloud's community of songwriters and other sound creators, who can now make their original content available for licensing by adding the "license" button from Getty Images Music to their SoundCloud player. The new feature allows SoundCloud users to make selected tracks available for sync licensing directly on the SoundCloud player, and allows commercial users to request a license for any of those tracks by clicking the "license" button on the SoundCloud player. Getty Images will be a commercial rights manager of the audio content selected for the SoundCloud collection. Getty Images will ensure all tracks are available for safe commercial use by customers. SoundCloud members will benefit from Getty Images' global sales and distribution teams helping to market their sounds and from Getty Images' expertise and experience in rights and clearances of digital content. Getty Images' customers will benefit from the fresh, unique and individualistic sound from members of SoundCloud's global community.
