Nomono Wins 2023 SXSW Innovation Award for its Revolutionary Sound Capsule
Nomono, the pioneering developer of audio recording and collaboration tools designed to help podcasters and journalists tell immersive audio stories, today announced that its groundbreaking platform, comprised of the Nomono Sound Capsule and Nomono Cloud, has been named the 2023 SXSW Innovation Award winner in the “Audio” category.
Winners representing the year’s most innovative technology advancements were announced at the SXSW Innovation Awards Ceremony on Monday, March 13th at the Austin Convention Center. The renowned, long-running South by Southwest® competition recognizes the most exciting technology developments in the connected world, and the “Audio” category highlights the top sound-related and music projects, as well as projects that stretch the boundaries of audio-based platforms.
“The industry is growing exponentially, and there’s never been a more exciting time to be at the forefront of technology innovations merging spatial audio and podcasting,” said Jonas Rinde, CEO of Nomono. “We’re confident that the Nomono Sound Capsule and Nomono Cloud will usher in the next era of audio content that will completely revolutionize how podcasts are created and consumed. We’re honored to be recognized by SXSW, one of the most prestigious award programs across the globe, for delivering on our mission.”
The Nomono Sound Capsule is a cloud-connected, self-contained recording kit for capturing audio recordings in the field and designed specifically for professional podcasters and broadcast journalists. It includes a Wi-Fi enabled recorder that combines four ultra-compact wireless lavalier mics with a 360-degree spatial audio microphone array and weighs less than 4 pounds.
The Nomono Sound Capsule connects seamlessly to the Nomono Cloud, an online audio collaboration tool where content creators can backup their recordings, collaborate with their production team, and apply AI-powered dialogue enhancement processing to ensure their audio sounds the best it can before starting the editorial process.
With unparalleled portability and ease-of-use, Nomono’s combined solutions are revolutionizing how professional-quality audio is created. Unlike current podcasting workflows that depend on separate field recorders, microphones, mixers, and accessories, Nomono offers a portable, all-in-one field recording solution built specifically for podcasters and journalists that automatically uploads recordings to an intuitive cloud-based audio collaboration and preparation tool.
“We’ve built an incredibly creative and passionate team at Nomono, and I’m so proud of the technology innovations we’ve created and recognition we’ve achieved so far,” concluded Rinde. “The Nomono Sound Capsule and Nomono Cloud are just the beginning for the company – with such a talented team backed by investors that share our mission, we’ll continue to unlock entirely new experiences for podcast producers and listeners every step of the way.”
Nomono’s mission is to simplify podcasting and redefine the listening experience by enabling anyone to record immersive audio with uncompromising quality and ease. Founded in 2019 as a spinoff from SINTEF Digital, Nomono’s goal is to provide storytellers and content creators with audio workflows that are smart, simple and deliver excellent sound, while making it effortless to incorporate object-based spatial audio into their craft. Nomono is headquartered in Trondheim, Norway, with satellite offices in Oslo and New York. For more information, visit https://nomono.co.
