Actus Digital Adds AI Capabilities  

Media monitoring with artificial intelligence speeds up content tagging, video organization and categorization, enabling media companies to repurpose more relevant content.

At IBC 2019, Actus Digital will show its media monitoring system enhanced with artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities that dramatically speed up workflows. Using Actus Digital’s intelligent, data-driven platform, media companies can automatically tag, organize, and categorize video recordings to enable rapid retrieval of relevant content and clips creation for social media outlets and the web.

Actus Digital’s media monitoring platform, newly enhanced with AI, allows media companies to more intelligently monitor and search for content beyond the channel name, date/time, extracted metadata such as as-run/EPG, closed caption, and manually entered metadata. In addition, users can use the platform to search for spoken words (speech to text), text that appears in the videos, specific faces (facial recognition), logos and logo changes, and detect advertising.

The AI capabilities in the compliance solution offers detailed reports on loudness, SCTE, closed captions, automatic configuration options, OTT monitoring, and more. AI capabilities have also been added to Actus Digital’s Clip Factory clips creation workflow for increased speed and efficiency. With these new options, media companies can decrease manual labor and gain an edge on the competition.

The Actus Digital media monitoring platform delivers an intelligent approach to monitoring and support for multiple deployment environments, including on-premise, virtualization, cloud, and hybrid.

“In today’s media environment, companies are dealing with a massive amount of content and data. How fast they can analyze data, find relevant content, and turn that content into engaging clips is a major differentiator,” said Raphael Renous, CTO, Actus Digital. “AI is a game changer for media monitoring, as it opens up an entire new range of workflows and automation options. With our AI media monitoring platform, tagging and clips creation is an instantaneous process based on comprehensive content analysis, and we’re excited to bring that unique value prop to our customers.”
