Making their IBC debut are Biometrics, Timelines and Editorial Post Production modules for OMG’s Cubix media asset management platform. Also on demonstration is the new Tracker & Reporting and Taskflow Designer options.
The Cubix Cognitive Services module provides a range of features including speech-to-text transcription, subtitle validation, language detection, image recognition and real-time content moderation.
Instead of requiring operators to identify a language by listening to an audio track, Cognitive Services provides a weighted list of expected languages against which it tests each audio track. The module can then update the metadata within Cubix and tag the file before this passes through the configured workflow. Image recognition allows labels to be detected within graphic content. Example labels are furniture, people, facial attributes and emotions, animals and buildings.
Timelines offers Cubix users fast interaction with metadata, audio tracks, automated quality-control reports and edit decision lists. Clients can also generate their own metadata tracks for deep logging or to make timeline-based use of the cognitive services.
The new Editorial Post Production features for Cubix allow automated import, management and ingest of the media with associated metadata into editorial systems such as those from Avid, including direct ingest to Interplay.
