NETIA has announced a partnership with Vecsys, integrating the company’s MediaSpeech speech2text engine with the NETIA MAM solution. This will make full text transcription and search capabilities available alongside video in the MAM interface.
The 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,” said 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.”
The incorporation of MediaSpeech technology into the NETIA MAM aims to make it easier for media companies to deliver content according to their customers’ demands. Users can access, search, browse and retrieve content through a single interface, in applications ranging from media logging to production, post production and archiving.
“Vecsys is very excited about this partnership with NETIA,” commented 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
