Metadata support16 September 2017
Video software and services specialist Ooyala is showcasing the latest enhancements to Ooyala Flex, the media logistics platform that connects the different elements in a production pipeline, and its integration with Microsoft Azure.
Ooyala Flex enables users to streamline the creation and delivery of media in a time-critical market. The update includes temporal metadata support and a new dynamic timeline, creating richer metadata that enhances contextual search and enables rapid asset discovery and distribution. New support for growing files means that customers can work with files in near real time, speeding up delivery and generating quicker returns.
Ooyala is also showcasing its integration with Azure Transcode Services, adding new cloud-based transcode resource from within Ooyala Flex.
There is a preview of its integration with the Azure Video Indexer. Ooyala Flex automatically passes assets to Video
Indexer, which extracts metadata such as the dialogue, people and text in the video. This metadata is returned to Ooyala Flex travelling with the asset, automatically offering a deeper set of metadata.
