AI media monitoring, tagging and clips creation is an instantaneous process based on comprehensive content analysis.
International company recently announced its media monitoring system has been upgraded with artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to significantly accelerate workflows.
At IBC2019, Actus Digital demonstrate how its mandatory compliance solution is part of a much larger platform, providing cross-organizational benefits to the operations, marketing and research, and new media departments of broadcasters and media companies. The platform includes solutions for compliance, quality-of-service assurance, content repurposing, rating analysis, and more.
Newly enhanced with AI, Actus Digital’s media monitoring platform now allows media companies to more intelligently monitor and search for content beyond the channel name, date/time, extracted metadata such as run/EPG, and closed captions, as well as manually entered metadata.
Users can also use the platform to search for spoken words using speech-to-text, text that appears in the videos, facial recognition, logos and logo changes, and detect advertising. The AI capabilities are among ongoing improvements to the compliance solution, which offers detailed reports on loudness, SCTE, closed captions, automatic configuration options, OTT monitoring, and more.
“We have enhanced the Actus Digital intelligent media platform to include more functionality, additional AI options, and extended automation related to compliance, clips creation and export to social media, and content monitoring and analysis,” said Raphael Renous, CTO at Actus Digital. “At IBC2019, we will present how the new platform improves the daily workflow for media companies.”
Beyond Standard Requirements
Media companies today need a compliance solution that pushes the boundary of innovation, going beyond supporting simple tasks, such as logging, monitoring, and regulation compliance. Companies want their compliance solution to provide quality assurance tools, video analysis reports, advanced clip creation, OTT monitoring, and multiviewer capabilities, all from a single platform. The industry is changing rapidly and it needs flexible solutions supporting a range of deployment models.
On-stand at IBC2019, Actus Digital will demonstrate the expansive functionalities of the Actus media monitoring platform, which offers an intelligent approach to monitoring and support for multiple deployment environments, including on-premises, virtualization, the cloud, and hybrid combinations.
Speedy Content Repurposing
The content repurposing workflow has to be simple and fast. AI makes publishing content as fast as possible to new media platforms, social media, and OTT platforms. Actus Digital’s Clip Factory clips creation workflow offers a simple web browser interface for creating and exporting clips, enabling content repurposing from anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Clip Factory ensures that all content is exported fast, whether it’s done manually or automatically. Clip Factory doesn't require a special workstation or professional editors.
“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.”
