Findaway World Launches AudioEngine Audiobook Distribution Platform

We mentioned Ohio-based Findaway World about one month ago on infoDOCKET when 3M announced that 40,000 audiobooks were now available to Cloud Library partners. Findaway World powers the 3M Cloud Library audiobook service.


Now, Findaway World is announcing that their AudioEngine audiobook distribution platform (what 3M, MackinVia Follett, and Baker & Taylor already utilize) is now available to others to integrate into their products and services.

From the Findaway World:

AudioEngine [is] a new audiobook distribution platform that enables seamless access to Findaway’s expansive library of audiobooks [over 50,000] through a powerful and flexible API and SDK.


AudioEngine not only enables audiobook integration across mobile, including iOS and Android, but also web…

The API powers access to Findaway’s audio catalogue, while the SDK allows partners to build a feature-rich media player within their own offering. AudioEngine also enables Digital Rights Management (DRM) for partners to ensure publisher-approved content handling.


At launch, several leading companies are currently using AudioEngine to power audiobooks in their platforms, including 3M, Mackin, Baker & Taylor and Follet.
