Nexidia Products at IBC2015:

Nexidia Dialogue Search 2.0 Now Shipping
At IBC2015, Nexidia will demonstrate the newest version of Dialogue Search — a market- leading software tool that searches for any spoken word or phrase, independent of metadata, across massive media libraries in seconds. The patented technology behind Dialogue Search allows media organizations to make better use of their production assets and media libraries by quickly and precisely finding unique assets that searching traditional metadata may never reveal. Dialogue Search dramatically reduces logging and transcription costs, integrates directly with media asset management (MAM) and editing applications, and requires no training.

Version 2.0 includes several new features:
– Full-text search and filtering of all metadata fields across all available sources
– Redesigned user interface with customizable layout and project “bins”
Avid Interplay MAM support, in addition to Avid Interplay Production, Dalet Galaxy, Vizrt VizOne, IPV Curator, and CatDV

Nexidia IIluminate Family Makes European Debut
At IBC2015, Nexidia will introduce the Illuminate family of automated, file-based QC applications that can automate testing of critical components of media with proprietary technology — tests that, until now, could only be performed manually. Nexidia Illuminate is comprised of three different software-based products targeted for different applications — Nexidia QC for quality control, Nexidia Comply for broadcast compliance monitoring, and Nexidia Align for caption alignment. This segmentation offers products tailored specifically for the broadcast monitoring, compliance, and file-based QC markets, with more flexible pricing options to better suit each of those markets and individual customer needs.

The Nexidia Illuminate products are delivered as software that can operate on premises or in the cloud. Nexidia QC can operate as both a standalone solution and with existing integrations, including Telestream Vantage, AmberFin UQC, Aspera Orchestrator, and Evertz Mediator. It can also be integrated into other third-party tools using Nexidia QC’s REST API. Nexidia Comply works in conjunction with Volicon Observer and other third-party monitoring solutions or with the REST API to implement custom solutions. Nexidia Align can be accessed as part of Nexidia Comply and Nexidia QC integrations, as well as via a REST API.

Other new features include:
– Caption/subtitle text language verification which determines missing, incorrect, or out of sync caption errors
– Automated caption alignment for rebroadcast or re-use in OTT distribution
– Expanded caption formats now supported (STL, EBU-IT, and ITT)
– Language ID technology update with expanded language support

Joint Volicon-Nexidia Closed-Caption Retiming Solution
During IBC2015 Volicon (Stand 7.G23) will feature a solution, developed jointly with Nexidia, that enables comprehensive automated caption-retiming for live or framerate-converted captioned content to ensure closed captions are properly aligned and formatted for every destination. The joint solution features Nexidia Align and Volicon’s Share Application which is part of the Observer Media Intelligence Platform®. The integrated solution tests for out-of-sync captions due to drift or other reasons, and then automatically corrects them so that closed captions are synchronized with the speech before delivery. With this automated electronic solution, users can cost-effectively evaluate all broadcast feeds, along with a broad array of Internet-delivered streams, to avoid costly recaptioning or manual realignment.

Company Quote:

“With Nexidia Illuminate, we’ve been able to provide an a-la-carte captioning QC solution that will better serve the needs of our current clients by segmented the product to address the three primary use-cases. At IBC2015, we will show how automated caption monitoring, verification, alignment, and language identification can benefit media organizations and viewers alike. We will also be showcasing Nexidia Dialogue Search, the only tool that allows users to quickly access product assets and reclaim media assets from massive libraries without the cost and latency of tagging or transcription.”
