To understand what ACX is, imagine an open marketplace, one where anyone who holds the rights to an audiobook—an author, agent, or publisher—can be matched with the narrators and studio professionals who can get those audiobooks made.
At the heart of the system is this idea: The rights to an audiobook often remain unrealized and the book is never recorded. And there’s huge potential sitting there, too—the potential for creative work, the potential for new income, and the potential for good listening.
Consider this: In 2009, while the market for digital media was expanding enormously, about one hundred thousand books were published, and not even five thousand of those were produced as audiobooks. We view those idle audiobook rights as a ready and clear opportunity for everyone.
Whether you’re a Rights Holder or Producer, here is how ACX can help you:
This is what ACX is all about: opening alternative channels of access, collaboration, and income.
