Speechmatics and Tedial Partner for ASR/MAM Future

Combined technologies provide sports and live event broadcasters with sophisticated automatic speech-to-text tools for enriched content and maximized efficiency.

Tedial and Speechmatics recently announced a technology partnership incorporating Speechmatics’ popular Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology with Tedial’s cutting-edge live sports solution, SMARTLIVE. Operators can search for comments made during a sporting match or live event; automatically create file locators; and import a file or drop it into a watch folder and manually generate the speech-to-text from the commentary track.

These features allow quicker access to content, enabling production teams to significantly increase their efficiency and output without needing to scale up, leaving more time for creativity, such as personalized stories that enhance the overall viewer experience. The solution maximizes efficiency, output and profitability for broadcasters of sports and live events. It also enables reduced overheads by cutting costs without having to compromise on the quality of their solution.

Ian Firth, Speechmatics VP Products commented: “We’re delighted to be partnered with Tedial in what is an exciting time for both companies. Given the incredibly competitive nature of the marketplace in which they operate, both Tedial and its customers require the most accurate and efficient solutions, and we see this partnership as further testament to the quality of our product.”

Jérôme Wauthoz, VP Products at Tedial, said: “The integration of Speechmatics’ technology reaffirms our commitment to deliver market- leading,cutting-edge MAM solutions. It’s a natural fit and we’re thrilled to welcome them to the fold.

“This initial integration enables us to continue to benefit from further improvements in years to come. This is what machine learning is all about, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with Speechmatics to further enhance our solutions for an enriched customer experience in the weeks, months and years to come.”
