How does it work?

Automated content recognition allows recognizing previously indexed audio samples as they are played in live streams.

It does this by constantly reading a stream and creating acoustic fingerprints from it's audio signal as it goes along. These are then matched against a database of known fingerprints from songs, ads or other audio sample.

Acoustic fingerprints "take into account the perceptual characteristics of the audio" (wikipedia) meaning they are not based on the audio waveform itself, but rather how it will sound to the human ear. This allows very robust recognition that is resilient to noise, transmission or encoding artifacts and produce very accurate results.

Several well-known consumer focused recognition services like Shazam and SoundHound take advantage of this technology to immediately recognise songs for their users.
