New Technologies for A/V Analysis and Search

13.04.2017

At this year’s NAB Show, the world’s largest convention for the digital media industry, taking place April 22–27, in Las Vegas, Fraunhofer IDMT will be presenting new technologies for A/V analysis and search. The updated tools allow users to detect partial duplicates, track metadata and content reuse, automatically extract metadata and manage complex multimodal analysis workflows.

A/V Segment Matching – Tracking metadata and detecting duplicates


The updated software tools of Fraunhofer IDMT compare audio content to identify duplicates and content reuse.

Aggregation, production and storage often include the creation of complete or partial copies of content, which results in unnecessary storage costs and issues related to metadata tracking. Fraunhofer IDMT’s audio and video segment technologies can be used to detect complete and partial matches as well as content reuse, which can also be a powerful tool for program analysis and content monitoring.

Automatic A/V annotation, now featuring audio forensics tools

Building on its existing A/V analysis technologies (amongst others speech-music discrimination and automatic audio/music and visual annotation), Fraunhofer IDMT now also provides several tools for audio forensics. “Our software tools support content production and avoid quality problems, for instance,” explains Patrick Aichroth, Head of Media Distribution and Security at Fraunhofer IDMT. “This can be achieved by using codec analysis to detect previous coding steps and parameters. Moreover, the tools allow the identification of the original recording device, which can be used to automatically adapt audio processing to the device’s properties”. Finally, if audio material was not properly annotated, the software helps finding cuts and edits.

An Open-Source Framework for multi-modal analysis and recommendation

The possibility to perform complex multi-modal content analysis is crucial to support advanced search and recommendation functionalities and to improve the quality of metadata, but it requires addressing of many technological challenges. The open-source framework MiCO (Media in Context), which was developed in a research project funded by the European Commission, addresses several of these challenges. The results and features of the project will be presented at NAB Show as well.

Automatic Quality Control (QC)

Fraunhofer IDMT will also present the integration of its QC components for automated Quality Control of DCP/IMF content into the professional movie post-production solution easyDCP by Fraunhofer IIS.

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...

Im Focus: Scientists improve forecast of increasing hazard on Ecuadorian volcano

Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, the Italian Space Agency (ASI), and the Instituto Geofisico--Escuela Politecnica Nacional (IGEPN) of Ecuador, showed an increasing volcanic danger on Cotopaxi in Ecuador using a powerful technique known as Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR).

The Andes region in which Cotopaxi volcano is located is known to contain some of the world's most serious volcanic hazard. A mid- to large-size eruption has...
