​VSN Integrates AI Into MAM For Metadata Detection

The VSNExplorer media management platform has been integrated with artificial intelligence to provide automatic metadata detection. The company also will demonstrate new MAM tools for news production along with VSNCrea, a new HTML5 and cloud-based version of VSN’s previous software VSNCreaTV for traffic and scheduling.

The integration of VSN’s VSNExplorer MAM with Etiqmedia, IBM Watson, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and permits the automatic detection of metadata directly from the media, which can be accessed from MAM's cataloguing view. Metadata can relate to file characteristics, such as format, size or date of creation, but also to its content. It will catalogue media files and each of its segments according to the information captured from the video (image processing, object detection and contextual information), audio layer (speech-to-text, text transcription and translation, or audio effects detection), actions performed, its main sentiment (positive, negative or neutral) and even the people appearing in the content (face recognition).

Following the implementation of these three systems (VSNExplorer MAM with Wedit, the studio automation VSNLivecom and VSNExplorer plugin for NRCS, and a MOS Media Bus that is fully developed in HTML5), the Inbound News Production solution provides users with a single workspace to prepare their news.

“It enables journalists to quickly search for content through the MAM system, edit video files, unify them with graphics and send the final news piece to broadcast — all within the journalists’ NRCS GUI,” explains Patricia Corral, marketing director.

VSNCrea is the company’s new browser-based software for TV, radio and second-screen traffic and scheduling. It enables the management of a company’s content production catalog, either owned or acquired from third parties, as well as its advertising, production workflows, programming and broadcast planning — all from a unique user interface.

Says Corral, “VSNCrea has been completely redesigned to offer broadcasters a modern and user-friendly web interface that allows them to make quick and accurate decisions about when to broadcast a certain piece of content, thanks to its unified functionalities and workflows in one single interface. It also provides useful extra information such as analytical data about the actual profitability of the content.

“The possibility of running this software in the cloud will enhance the ability of users and departments to work together on a more collaborative basis. Other features include the ability to change language within the user interface, the consolidation of the final broadcast and the analysis of the programming and content return on investment through analytical reports.”
