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.

Digital Nirvana transforming and streamlining broadcast monitoring and content generation Posted: 09/03/2020
Digital Nirvana transforming and streamlining broadcast monitoring and content generation

Digital Nirvana is transforming and streamlining broadcast monitoring and content generation for today's media companies. The company is demonstrating the game-changing capabilities of its Trance cloud-based transcription, captioning, and translation workflow, highlight the newest updates to its popular MonitorIQ broadcast-monitoring solution, and showcase enhanced options in the Metadator SaaS platform for metadata generation. D

Trance — Automated Cloud-Based Captioning and Text Localization Workflow

Digital Nirvana's Trance is an enterprise-level, cloud-based transcription, closed captioning, and translation workflow that brings significant new efficiencies to captioning and subtitling workflows. With a cloud-based architecture, an integrated automatic speech-to-text (STT) engine, and an easy-to-use interface, Trance orchestrates, automates, and streamlines critical processes for new levels of accuracy, quality, and efficiency. Captions can be generated per presets to conform with style guides per the requirement of digital publishers.

Leveraging integration with an advanced STT engine, Trance automatically generates transcripts — in multiple languages, when needed — for every work item, delivering productivity improvements up to 50% compared to conventional desktop applications. Trance delivers further gains by centralizing workflows such as job allocation, caption edits, role assignment, report generation, and status monitoring for streamlined project management.

Trance's easy-to-use browser-based interface speeds up the process of reviewing STT content, and the platform's cloud-based architecture helps users access content from anywhere while eliminating the need for individual software installs and updates. Plus, Trance has the ability to ingest Avid assets directly for caption generation and/or metadata enhancement. Users can access media assets from cloud storage, Avid Media Central, SFTP, local servers, or via an API, and the final output can be automatically converted into multiple sidecar formats and sent to predefined destinations.

MonitorIQ — Robust Broadcast Monitoring
The next generation of MonitorIQ 7.0, compliance and broadcast monitoring system.

Monitor IQ 7.0 will feature one-touch access to content and associated metadata for fast content review, analysis, troubleshooting, and proof of performance. The advanced analysis includes a comparison of SCTE messages and deep-dive analysis of SCTE messages.

Content sharing and collaboration are maximized with new Clip and Share tools. Media and business analytics are immediately available for functions such as network uptimes, and automatic ad identification in competitor feeds.
