Veritone Provides the Voices for Cameo Kids
Veritone will power select voices and animated assets for the new Cameo Kids, where parents and loved ones can book personalized Cameo videos for kids from their favorite family entertainment stars, beginning with Moonbug Entertainment's most popular global kids' franchises, Blippi and CoComelon.
Leveraging Veritone Voice, Cameo Kids provides personalization for its customers, with the opportunity to now enhance videos at volume and scale with Veritone's AI-voice platform for personalized birthday, holiday and inspirational messages. New Veritone-powered voices will initially include those from Moonbug, most notably Blippi, and CoComelon's JJ, Cody, Cece and Nina, as well as an animated Santa Claus powered by Mindshow.
"AI voice is a game-changer for children's entertainment, providing an enabling and extending technology for content owners. In fact, without AI voice, scaling these personalized messages would not be possible," said Veritone President Ryan Steelberg in a statement. "We're thrilled to work with market-leading Cameo to bring new opportunities to IP owners and delight fans through videos from their favorite characters. Future possibilities are extensive, and we're excited to continue working together to enhance the fan experience."
In addition to providing Cameo with the AI voices, Veritone also built an asset assembly engine, which can compile multiple layers of visual assets, music, and synthetic voice as a result of user-engaged selections. Veritone uses proprietary machine learning on its aiWARE platform to synchronize voice, personalization, and video for an all-in-one solution to deliver the customized greetings.
"With Cameo Kids, we can seamlessly onboard new animated characters from IP partners and reach an entirely new family audience, making magical moments possible from their favorite animated stars," said Steven Galanis, Cameo's co-founder and CEO, in a statement. "Veritone has been instrumental in bringing this to life by enabling the AI voices for select characters alongside the visual asset coordination."
