NETIA announced a partnership with Vecsys, a leader in the speech-to-text market, through which the latter company’s MediaSpeech “speech2text” engine will be integrated into the NETIA MAM (media asset management) solution to make full-text transcription and search capabilities available alongside video in the MAM interface. This new capability enables the automated transcription of audio tracks accompanying any ingested video as well as greater control over indexing, enriching, storing, retrieving, and monetizing 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 proven MediaSpeech technology makes easier for media companies to deliver content according to their customers’ demands. From ingest to distribution in applications ranging from media logging to production, postproduction, and archiving, NETIA MAM users can access, search, browse, and retrieve content through a single interface tailored to their work.
