Arvato Systems Announce AI functionality For VPMS, BMS & Vidinet Customers At 2019 NAB Show

Arvato Systems and Vidispine launched additional advanced cognitive functionality to Vidinet at the 2019 NAB Show. The new functions are available for Arvato Systems Video Production Management Suite (VPMS) and Broadcast Management Suite (BMS) customers, as well as all Vidispine API-as-a-Service subscribers on Vidinet.

With minimal configuration, users can execute multiple media analysers and pre-trained AI models through a single interface that provides unified, aggregated and normalised results. The flexibility of this unified data model — the Analyzed Data Unit (ADU) — differentiates the cognitive functionality in Vidinet from simple AI aggregators.

The solution also enables users to cascade and combine different services to gain further insight into their media. For example, a common need might be to create metadata relating to the context and tone of the content; this can be achieved using use a ‘speech to text’ service to create a transcript of a clip, which could then be passed through a natural language processing algorithm for tone and context. The result could also be combined with object recognition analysis to increase the confidence level of that data.

This information can improve accuracy and relevance in search applications for journalistic and archive workflows. It can also be used to enhance monetization processes and optimize advertising placement through elements such as context recognition.

Later this year, additional functionality will enable results of any analysis to be stored in a graph database, allowing for the real-time combination and extrapolation of metadata to provide additional insight into media — for example, retroactively assessing the genealogy of a media file.

Arvato Systems will provide a common training interface for supported services, enabling training to be easily integrated into, and become an integral part of, media workflows.
