The solution now includes Speechmatics, speech-to-text capability and a new auto-logging tool
For the first time at a European trade show, Tedial is showcasing its live sport solution, SMARTLIVE. The solution, which marries Artificial Intelligence (AI) to an innovative metadata engine, now includes fully integrated Speechmatics, speech-to-text capability and a new auto-logging tool. The company is showing its HYPER IMF solution, which now includes a host of new tools that improve the content delivery and management to non-linear platforms by providing assembly-on-the-fly. Tedial is also demonstrating new cloud storage support capability for its hybrid content management solution, Evolution aSTORM.
“IBC is really exciting for us as it’s the first time that we’ve demonstrated SMARTLIVE at a European trade show,” says Esther Mesas, CSO/CMO, Tedial. “The new features introduced for SMARTLIVE, HYPER IMF and Evolution aSTORM provide broadcasters and content owners with sophisticated, future-proof technology for multi-platform delivery significantly reducing costs, increasing fan engagement and creating new revenue streams.”
SMARTLIVE 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 it 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.
The solution 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.
HYPER IMF solution
Tedial’s HYPER IMF, an end-to-end MAM solution that supports IMF formats for ingest, archive and delivery now includes automatic leader insertion, which incorporates all the elements required for each platform (e.g. bars/clock etc.). HYPER IMF also now includes automatic localization based on delivery profile, enabling all credits and text insertions for every language required to be added automatically.
Throughout the show Tedial will also demonstrate new features for its 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 tool functions independently of expensive third-party systems, making it a cost-effective solution and easy-to operate for users.
