Digital Nirvana Majors On Metadator

First introduced at NAB in April, IBC marks the international debut of Metadator - a software application that makes the editing process more efficient for broadcasters and content creators.

Metadator makes the content-based metadata creation process more efficient for Avid users. The application has the ability to export media from AVID, create metadata automatically over the cloud and generate locators. The metadata, along with the locators will be automatically ingested and attach itself to the video asset present in AVID Interplay.

“Creation of high-quality transcripts as metadata for pre-edit footages helps to streamline the editing process as well as simplifies closed captioning/subtitling processes,” explains Digital Nirvana. “Content editors do not have to manually comb through huge amounts of video footage to create scene summaries. While editing footages down to a show, editors can easily find out the desired clips using the metadata that is available in the infrastructure.”

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 Metadator application, installed at client’s premises, communicates with the user’s internal AVID InterPlay/ISIS infrastructure to extract media and securely transfer it to Digital Nirvana’s cloud-based platform over HTTPS. It allows its users to choose whether to transfer the video assets or to extract audio-only from the video assets and send it outside the customer premises.

“The audio/video received at the cloud center is processed for auto-generation of metadata which includes keywords, auto-transcripts, high-quality transcripts, and video descriptions. Once the metadata is created, Metadator can fetch it and post them on the user’s internal infrastructure. The application is also integrated with a continuous monitoring and alerting system that monitors each job and notifies all stakeholders on the status of the jobs.”
