NETIA announces integration partnership for MAM solution
NETIA has announced a new partnership with Vecsys, a leader in the speech-to-text market, through which the latter company’s MediaSpeech speech2text engine will be integrated into the NETIA MAM (media asset management) solution to make full-text transcription and search capabilities available alongside video in the MAM interface. This new capability enables the automated transcription of audio tracks accompanying any ingested video as well as greater control over indexing, enriching, storing, retrieving, and monetising A/V content.
“By converting audio tracks into searchable transcriptions, the MediaSpeech engine not only supports faster and more effective content searches, but also enables more comprehensive extraction of metadata and more extensive automated indexing,” says Paul Henri Oltra, vice-president and CTO at NETIA. “These benefits are significant individually, and together they yield a tremendous boost in the efficiency with which users can find and use the content they want or need.”
“Vecsys is very excited about this partnership with NETIA,” says Béatrice Bacconnet, Vecsys CEO. “Video and audio productions are extremely precious assets, but they are often underutilised because traditional searches are blind to their true content. The combination of the NETIA MAM with our Vecsys MediaSpeech speech-to-text solution is cracking the code to deep audio and video content management; it’s opening a range of new possibilities for producers, broadcasters, journalists, and analysts, as well as the public at large.”
The incorporation of proven MediaSpeech technology into the NETIA MAM makes it even easier for media companies to deliver content according to their customers’ demands. From ingest to distribution in applications ranging from media logging to production, postproduction, and archiving, NETIA MAM users can very simply access, search, browse, and retrieve content through a single interface tailored to their work.
