Going to IBC? Looking for sophisticated MAM solutions? Come to stand 8.B41…
IBC is just around the corner and we can’t wait to tell you about the major updates to our Evolution enterprise MAM solution, on stand 8.B41. If you weren’t at NAB 2018, this is probably the first time that you’ve had a chance to get up close and personal with our cutting-edge live sport solution SMARTLIVE, as IBC 2018 plays host to its European launch.
Marrying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to an innovative metadata engine to bring the back office and archives closer to live than ever before, SMARTLIVE now includes an auto-logging tool, which automatically creates all logging information for every event using AI technology. It can analyse commentary tracks and insert the corresponding logs into event logs and can provide video recognition of action and players. This is particularly relevant for less popular sports where data feeds may not be available and when manually logging events is not cost-effective.
SMARTLIVE is now fully integrated with Speechmatics speech recognition technology, which enables speech-to-text integration by annotating incoming live media. This provides two new workflows. Using a live feed, SMARTLIVE can automatically create an event blog, which allows the operator to search for any comments made during the match. This blog is stored in the library with the attached file locators automatically created by Speechmatics. The second workflow allows the operator to import a file or drop it into a watch folder and manually generate the speech to text from the commentary track.
SMARTLIVE is not the only star on the Tedial stand. We’re demonstrating sophisticated new features to HYPER IMF, our end-to-end MAM solution that supports IMF formats for ingest, archive and delivery. HYPER IMF now includes automatic leader insertion, which incorporates all the elements required for each platform (e.g. bars/clock etc.). It also now includes automatic localization based on delivery profile, enabling all credits and text insertions for every language required to be added automatically. We’ll demonstrate new features for our IMF Markup Tool, a simple-to-use editor that addresses the versioning requirements typically needed for distribution. Designed for fast validation and repair of IMF packages, this intuitive tool functions independently of expensive third-party systems, making it an extremely cost-effective solution and easy-to operate for users.
To answer the archive and storage requirements of our customers around the world, we’re showcasing Evolution aSTORM, our future-proof, hybrid content management solution. Evolution aSTORM, which now supports Google Cloud and AWS Glacier cloud storage, changes the storage paradigm from the traditional HSM approach (multi-tier vertical) to a true object based storage environment (multi-site, horizontal) and transparently manages various storage tiers across departments and locations.
Come and see us on stand 8.B41 for demonstrations and coffee!
