Veritone Powers Cameo Kids with AI Voice Tech
Veritone will power select voices and animated assets for newly-launched Cameo Kids. The platform allows parents and loved ones to 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 brands and IP owners with next-level 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—Blippi and CoComelon’s JJ, Cody, Cece, and Nina—as well as an animated Santa Claus powered by Mindshow.
“AI (artificial intelligence) 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. “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.”
“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,” added Steven Galanis, Cameo co-founder and CEO. “Veritone has been instrumental in bringing this to life by enabling the AI voices for select characters alongside the visual asset coordination.”
Cameo Kids marks Cameo’s first big investment in family entertainment. External APIs, quality control tools, content moderation, and a dynamic booking allow existing and future IP partners to seamlessly onboard and manage animated Cameo Kids characters, according to the company. The new destination aims to unlock a brand-new audience with unlimited product applications and in turn IP partners gain a new platform to offer exclusive, personalized content for the very first time, delighting and growing their fanbases.
