Harmonic Providing Free Access to Video Streaming Innovation During Global Lockdown

The current global health crisis has given rise to rapid growth in network traffic, resulting in strain across global broadband networks. In order to address the recent surge and to support its many customers during these unprecedented times, Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced it will provide its EyeQ™ content-aware encoding (CAE) technology free for the next 90 days to help alleviate the current network constraints.

Harmonic's EyeQ technology leverages artificial intelligence to reduce streaming congestion on broadband networks by up to 50% without impacting quality. It serves as a highly effective tool to combat the recent surge and a step above recently utilized methods, such as resolution and bit rate reductions. EyeQ CAE is available on all Harmonic media processors, through a software license, and the VOS®360 Live Streaming Platform.

"Due to the nearly global lockdown, the demand for high-quality streaming services has exploded and as such has led to excessive constraints on broadband networks. Adding our EyeQ technology to the mix can greatly decrease bandwidth consumption for high-quality video and alleviate strain on local and national broadband networks," said Shahar Bar, senior vice president, video products and corporate development at Harmonic. "By offering free licenses for the expected lockdown timeframes, Harmonic is providing an effective tool to help both media companies and broadband networks alike."

Veritone Expands Content Classification Capabilities to Power Contextual Advertising at Scale for Podcasts Posted: 10/03/2020
Veritone Expands Content Classification Capabilities to Power Contextual Advertising at Scale for Podcasts

Veritone Inc. (Nasdaq: VERI), the creator of the world's first operating system for artificial intelligence, aiWARE™, today announced the expansion of its content classification capabilities to support IAB Tech Lab Content Taxonomy-compliant metadata output via aiWARE APIs. The new offering will enable podcast distribution platforms to programmatically transcribe and tag audio streams with topical, descriptive, and time-correlated keyword metadata prior to publishing, allowing for advanced contextual ad targeting at scale. Further, greater insight into the subject matter of the podcast helps advertisers maintain brand safety by avoiding association with content that is not in alignment with their brand values.

Over 30 million podcast episodes are available today (versus 18.5 million in 2018), and consumer demand continues to increase. At the same time, consumer privacy laws are changing and severely curtailing the tracking of audience data. As a result, the ability to tag content with descriptive metadata is critical to enabling an alternative, contextual ad-targeting approach. Until now, tagging of media such as podcasts with contextual metadata has been a labor-intensive and time-consuming manual process, and it has largely been limited to program descriptions at the show and episode level, limiting a publisher's or advertiser's ability to find specific types of content for advertisement placement consideration. This manual process is not scalable to handle the ever-increasing amount of new content being produced daily and cannot support programmatic contextual ad targeting.

Veritone aiWARE's new content classification capability removes these hurdles through comprehensive and automated topic analysis, extraction, and time-coded tagging of the podcast with the applicable content category codes from the IAB Tech Lab Content Taxonomy. Podcast publishers can easily integrate the solution into their existing infrastructure and workflows.
