Send any data with sound.

Chirp technology encodes data into a series of audible or inaudible near-ultrasonic pitches and tones to form a ‘sonic barcode’. Data is encoded on a sending device before being transmitted, over the air, to a receiving device, or group of devices where it is decoded.

Chirp's technology suite of interoperable standard SDKs works on many different technology platforms and they can develop custom SDKs for our partner's specific requirements. Powerful error correction and patent-pending decoder technology makes Chirp technology bulletproof.


Why audio data encoding
• Does not require an existing audio signal to operate on.
• Encode and decode information in real-time, without external components
• Good fit for compact, dynamic payloads - appropriate for creating network-like communication links between devices
• Relatively high throughput making it suitable security-critical applications


Developer friendly
Easy to set up and integrate in an app or product.

Chirp technology encodes data into a series of audible or inaudible near-ultrasonic pitches and tones to form a ‘sonic barcode’. Data is encoded on a sending device before being transmitted, over the air, to a receiving device, or group of devices where it is decoded.Any device with a speaker can emit a Chirp and most devices with a microphone and small amount of processing power can receive and decode it.Our technology comes packaged as a suite of interoperable SDKs, and we can also develop custom products optimised for our partners' specific requirements.
