Venues Technology

At BMAT, we say that what plays around comes around, and this doesn't only include the music played on radios and TVs, but also all the songs played in bars, discos, clubs, and public venues.

Our BMAT Venues service provides music monitoring and identification in public venues using 3 different methods:

BMAT Boxes

Our advanced technology allows BMAT to continuously increase the number of unique works identified automatically. We install recording boxes in the venues, they record, store and send the data to our data centre where it is processed.

These small devices are connected directly to the sound system or to the DJ table. They monitor in real-time the music that is being played, keeping recordings clean of any surrounding noise. Its installation requires only an audio jack, internet, and electricity.

A number of key venues worldwide already have these devices installed. Our goal is to install as many boxes as possible in venues globally. By doing so, we are contributing to fairer distribution of the public performance rights generated from music that is actually played. Creators and producers that have been excluded from distributions thus far can now receive their corresponding royalties. 

How does it work?

1. BMAT installs a recording device on the premises.

2. This device records the music played at each establishment.

3. The recordings are transmitted over the Internet to BMAT’s datacentre.

4. At the datacentre, the music is analysed and identified using our audio fingerprinting technology.

5. A detailed report with all the results is generated. It is available in the corresponding Vericast account or can be forwarded directly to the performing rights organisation.

BMAT Venues App, Patti

We developed this application to help societies' agents to collect recordings from clubs, discos, and public venues. Using this app, every agent can adjust the sound parameters for better reception and recording. The recordings are directly sent to our platform over a wifi connection and there,  they are analysed and then stored in Vericast or forwarded to the PRO.


We partner with PioneerDJ - and its KUVO app - to monitor electronic music. We get real-time information about tracks and DJ sets from more than 1000 clubs all around the world, which we later enrich and deliver to collecting societies so they can distribute their royalties fairly.
