​Digital Nirvana Showcases Metadata Creation App

The Metadator app for Avid users, a cloud-based closed caption generation system and the latest version of its flagship Media Monitoring Platform was on show at NAB NY.

Hiren Hindocha, CEO, Digital Nirvana, said, “New York area broadcasters and content creators who were not able to attend NAB in Las Vegas or the IBC in Amsterdam have the opportunity to attend a quality trade show with many of the same players in their own backyard. We’re eager to demonstrate our new software and services at NAB New York and connect with our current and prospective customers during this high-profile, regional show.”

Metadator is intended to simplify content-based metadata creation for Avid users. The application has the ability to export media from Avid, create metadata automatically over the cloud along with locators, automatically ingest and attach itself to the video asset present in Avid Interplay. It helps creating a searchable database within the Avid MAM infrastructure that has multiple benefits in an increasing metadata-centric media world.

Digital Nirvana will also showcase its automated, cloud-based Closed Caption Generation service for all pre-recorded and online video content. Considering the delivery requirements to multiple platforms, customers can now request for any or all standard formats for broadcast and IP delivery for video content.

Its Caption Lookup service is an effective way to quickly look up for captions from broadcast content, synchronize it, and reuse for online publishing. Captions associated with any broadcast content can be retrieved by submitting media clips over Rest API. Digital Nirvana's Retrieval technology makes content retrieval easy by maintaining a fingerprint database for broadcast content along with associated closed captions for selected channels.

Also making its appearance at NAB New York is the MonitorIQ Media Management platform, Version 5.2, a broadcast monitoring and logging system that supports H.264 recording, strengthened IPTV protocol support and updated calendar controls.
