WORLD NEWS EVS Servers available at Hireworks, supplied by WTS Broadcast B Precise content found with dialogue search… N exidia, developer of dialogue and audio analysis products and technologies for optimizing audio and video media, have announced that Cox Media Group’s Atlanta ABC affiliate, WSB-TV, has deployed Nexidia Dialogue Search to find precise content quickly within its substantial audio and video library, much of which lacks descriptive metadata to make it searchable by other means. WSB-TV’s library contains more than 40,000 hours of video and is constantly growing. Dialogue Search uses patented technology to search within this massive media library to find any given spoken word or phrase in seconds. In one instance, WSB-TV used Dialogue Search to fi nd the desired content in only fi ve minutes from the time producers decided on search terms to the time they had the results. At the same time Dialogue Search uncovered content WSB-TV producers didn’t even know they had. A prior search for the same content using other methods took a full week and yielded no results. roadcast equipment supplier WTS Broadcast has sold two EVS XT3 servers to rental company Hireworks in an investment in the region of £250K.
