Deepdub, an audiovisual dubbing and language localization company, has launched the Voice Artist Royalty Program to provide fair compensation to voice talent for the use of their voices in AI-powered dubbing, voice cloning, and other synthetic voice projects.

Deepdub's initiative empowers actors to earn from each use of their voices in AI-powered productions. The program is open to professional voice artists, who are required to submit samples of their voices. Once approved, they are added to Deepdub's voice marketplace and their vocal profile becomes available for use in audio-visual productions.

"At Deepdub, we want to ensure voice talent are rightfully rewarded for their artistry and skill," said Ofir Krakowski, CEO and co-founder of Deepdub, in a statement. "Our Voice Artist Royalty Program enables performers to tap into the expanding world of AI voice tech in an ethical, mutually beneficial way."

"AI holds tremendous promise for the entertainment industry and is fundamentally changing how content is created and distributed," said Emiliano Calemzuk, chairman of Deepdub's advisory board and former president of Fox Television Studios, in a statement. "However, it's critical that artists aren't left behind in this transformation and that people in all positions within the industry benefit from AI. Deepdub's Voice Artist Royalty Program is a watershed moment for the ethical adoption of AI in entertainment. This initiative paves a sustainable path for artists to continue to work alongside AI and to be fairly compensated for their unique skills and abilities."
