Audio is one of the most prevalent forms of media consumed today. In the last 18 months, Box has seen over a 50 percent growth in audio files alone. With the rapid rise of audio-first social networking like Clubhouse, Twitter Spaces, and Reddit Talk, the explosion of the podcast industry, new social platforms like TikTok, film & TV productions ramping up to meet the ubiquitous growth of streaming and music creation, the need for easily accessible and premium quality audio is critical for companies of all sizes regardless of industry.
For all of the reason above, we’re thrilled to announce a new integration with Dolby that makes production-quality audio as simple as uploading a file to Box. With this new integration with Dolby.io, companies using Box can offer their users seamless and cost-effective audio enhancement tools that leverage Dolby’s decades of expertise enabling best-in-class entertainment experiences, all within the Content Cloud
Over the last year, the media & entertainment industry had to navigate the complexities of having a distributed workforce. At Box, we believe that technology will continue to shape the next evolution of the media & entertainment industry, from content production to the many new distribution platforms influencing consumers and creators alike.
