Collaboration between Veritone and CAA strengthens data and identity security and underscores AI’s positive impact across the entertainment industry

Veritone, Inc. (NASDAQ: VERI), a leader in designing human-centered AI solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Creative Artists Agency (CAA), the world’s leading entertainment and sports agency, to power theCAAvault, an industry-leading synthetic media vault conceived by CAA to serve the entertainment community. As the technical launch partner for theCAAVault, Veritone is ingesting, organizing, and storing the digital talent assets, driving industry-wide innovation and delivering positive, ethical use of AI for the entertainment industry.  

CAA is accessing Veritone’s Digital Media Hub (DMH) technology for theCAAvault to store the intellectual property of the participating talent’s name, image and likeness.

By partnering with a trusted organization like Veritone, we can maintain the security of the artist’s assets, while working to ensure that AI is responsibly integrated into opportunities across the entertainment landscape.” 

Driven by the seamless asset management capabilities of Veritone’s DMH solution, theCAAvault intends to provide proficient and secure data management. This innovative solution enables CAA and its talent to embrace digital transformation through the tactical integration of AI into its asset management approach while also emphasizing the importance of safety, security and ethical considerations – a commitment Veritone continues to champion through its AI for Good mission.

“Veritone has championed ethical AI and data security for nearly a decade, and this partnership with CAA further exemplifies our ongoing commitment to leveraging technology for the greater good,” said Sean King, General Manager of Veritone Media and Entertainment. “Together with CAA, we are resolute in our dedication to safeguarding the interests of talent while raising the bar for data security and ethical AI in the entertainment industry.”
