​Digital Nirvana Adds Automation to Avid Interplay

The Metadator product automates media export and ingest of transcripts and other metadata into Avid Interplay.

Digital Nirvana’s new Metadator is a software application for editors in an Avid environment. It generates locators for media assets outside of Avid’s Interplay MAM system, making it easy for users to export media to external sources for generating transcripts or metadata that can be automatically ingested back into Avid Interplay.

The software automatically extracts video footage, extract audio, generate content metadata or transcripts using speech-to-text technology, then ingests the information back into Avid Interplay.

“The application automates what’s been a manual process of combing through footage and creating scene summaries,” states the firm. “Metadator communicates with Avid Interplay using web service APIs to access content. Users can generate locators for the media assets outside of Avid Interplay, then export media to external sources for generating transcripts and metadata. The processed data is then returned in an Avid-compatible format and attached to specific assets, so content creators can easily locate metadata when editing footage down to a singular show.”

A high-quality transcript generated through this service also aids in script writing and creating closed captions. Use cases also include video description wherein the application directly sends proxy videos to cloud service.

“Content owners will now be able to create transcripts easily for their media archives and create a searchable database within their Avid MAM infrastructure.

The software also provides users with the ability to send media assets from specific folders in InterPlay/ISIS externally and automatically generate transcription, captions, and metadata through Digital Nirvana’s cloud service.

“The Metadator gives users the ability to extract audio from the video assets on premises, which addresses any concerns over data security, since the video data doesn’t leave the premises and only the audio portion goes out to the cloud-based processing,” explains the firm.
