Whether newly digitized content or born digital, accurate metadata records are the best way to add access and value to your archive.
We can combine content analytics, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning paired with human discretion to make you content more “intelligent”.
We use multiple sources of information to create rich metadata. Beginning with your info from playout or MAM, scanning of your tapes and associated papers or sleeves to the technical metadata from our process- it all contributes to discoverability.
META Smart: Collect, Extract, Create & Curate
Define structure and data requirement
Our Team will work with you to decide what levels of metadata you want and make plans for how it will be enriched with new information in our process.
Collect your data
We will incorporate existing data, consolidate from different systems and sources and collect a baseline.
Extract data from Audio AND video
Next we let the machines work. From OCR, the latest AI and machine learning, Natural Language processing together with our technology partners and Sony, we extract data for new discoverablity of your archival content.
Distributed Workforce and Cloud
By leveraging the analytics with our DARS platform and our people we then analyze, tag and organize your content.
Curate and Review
In a final step we curate and review and make sure the information is complete and understandable.
Now you can explore and discover what’s in your archive in a whole new way.
YOUR EXISTING DATA
From tape label, box, scanned papers & MAM. Using information on your tapes, boxes or inserts, we can extract new levels of information through scanning and imaging with OCR software. We can also integrate data from your MAM or other systems (incl Newsroom Systems, cataloguing systems) curate it into a central intelligence.
With use of machine learning and recognition technologies we can extract faces, people, objects, scenes, places, weather, logos, player numbers, hair color, skin color, colors, age, animals, gender and more…
Audio analytics starts with speech to text but moves with Natural Language processing into understanding of concepts and meaning. This means, if someone speaks about “pasta with basil” it will understand that it is about pesto sauce.
Technology is great, but people are still greater. In moving from data to real information, we use our staff and subject matter experts for human based analytics.
