IBC 2018: TVU Networks showcases MediaMind AI portfolio
TVU Networks (stand 2.B28) announced that the TVU MediaMind solution portfolio is to make IBC debut. TVU Networks will demonstrate how this AI-led set of solutions can enable broadcasters and operators to migrate seamlessly towards the ‘smart studio’ of the future, delivering ROI and efficiency benefits both now and moving forward.
At the heart of MediaMind is an AI real-time search engine, which from the start of the video production process, indexes all video. Using an entirely cloud-based model, complete with voice and object recognition, live and pre-produced video clips are located and indexed down to the exact frame and are instantly shareable. MediaMind automates the ability for different production groups to find the right content. With cloud-based TVU Producer, different content can be cost-effectively created for different platforms or even audience groups. MediaMind also simplifies the process of transporting video to the studio, through the TVU Contribution Automation solution automating the planning, resource management, acquisition, transmission, and routing as well featuring integrated metadata and contribution management.
“The great advantage of our MediaMind architecture is that it delivers ROI enhancement right now and will accelerate this, as the broadcast industry moves towards the considerable financial benefits of ‘smart studio’ AI-led content creation and personalized media distribution,” says Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks.
Today, MediaMind ROI enhancing benefits include:
- Automatic metadata generation and enrichment
- Powerful real-time search through indexing video based upon metadata
- Simplifying video acquisition and contribution through bringing the power of AI to all OB scenarios, from video journalists, single camera shoots and multi-camera shoots
- Automation of time consuming necessary tasks such as clip generation, compliance, graphics creation, sub-titling, transcription, translation, etc.
- AI-aided editing can make this time-consuming process more efficient and capable of being handled professionally by non-experts
- AI-powered automated optimisation of video for distribution to all devices and over all platforms
- Enables operators to move towards increasingly granular automated media distribution, leading to personalised distribution of content for specific audiences.
“It’s TVU’s aim that its AI-led MediaMind portfolio of solutions will open the floodgates for how media is produced, distributed and consumed. We will do this through simplifying and automating the processes involved in creating one port that can feed all social media, digital and broadcast channels. Right now, producers hand-craft the multiple versions required for a TV show. In the ‘smart studio’ AI engines, such as our MediaMind solutions, will automate the assembly of the material and deliver it in the most effective way to the target audience,” concludes Shen.
