Tedial To Launch Multi Sport Functions For SmartLive

The MAM vendor will also demo Version Factory updates for content production and distribution at IBC 2019.

Tedial’s main news at IBC2019 is that SmartLive, its AI-inflected live production tool, will feature multi-sport configurations, to allow users to generate automatic highlights or auto-clipping for any genre of sport.

It bills this as a key addition to the list of the solution’s capabilities. “Totally agnostic to all data feeds, Tedial’s metadata engine makes it simple to add new configurations to the system as and when required,” Tedial states.

The Smartlive and Tedial’s Evolution MAM now includes a new module that allows all types of content to be published to any social network in just a click. Enabled by the system’s capability to create social publishing campaigns directly inside the MAM, content includes clips, highlights or historical media. This will be demonstrated on its stand.

Also highlighted is a tech partnership with Speechmatics. By integrating Speechmatics’ industry-leading Automated Speech Recognition technology with 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.

As well as these new features, Tedial says it will argue for the financial and operational benefits of operating Smartlive both on premises and in the cloud.

Esther Mesas, CSO/CMO, Tedial explains, “These latest additions enable production teams to significantly increase their efficiency and output without needing to scale up, leaving them more time for creativity, such as personalized stories that enhance the overall viewer experience.”

The company will also show Tedial Version Factory 2019 upgrades for the first time in Europe. Updates include, managing ‘on-the-fly’ assembly of unique versions, including pre, post and mid-roll insertions; matching contractual distribution requirements for timely deliveries; enabling IMF-compliant low-resolution proxy edits on media and templates, so seasons of episodes can be managed with a single configuration.

As part of Tedial’s Evolution MAM demonstration the company will also show new features to its Evolution aSTORM content management solution, which “transparently manages various tiers across departments and locations or in the cloud” for the first time in Europe. aSTORM also now supports Oracle cloud storage.

“The industry is undergoing a major transformation,” adds Mesas. “We deliver systems that provide a combination of features to optimize operations and content management at all levels on premises or in the cloud to ensure systems work efficiently according to each customer’s changing requirements.”
