NAB 2015 - Automatic Analysis of Audio and Video Material

08.04.2015

At NAB Show, the world’s largest convention for the digital media industry, taking place April 13 – 16 in Las Vegas (USA), Fraunhofer IDMT will be presenting it’s A/V Analyzing Toolbox, a collection of components for analyzing and optimizing processes for broadcasting, distributing, and archiving digital content.

Besides a number of previously introduced components, such as quality control of audio and video content (QC Components) or automatic measurement of the exact amount of music in radio and TV programs, the Fraunhofer experts will be showcasing a new tool for efficient management of video data in large archives.


Thanks to the new Video Segment Matching functionality, identical video segments as well as their exact position and length can be recognized automatically.

Fraunhofer IDMT

Broadcasting corporations and video archive operators usually use material from multiple sources (news agencies, private users, their own archives, etc.). That material is then edited by means of cuts, insertions/fade-ins, or the replacement of audio tracks. Identifying the broadcasting formats in which content is used and the channels through which it is distributed becomes increasingly difficult this way.

--- Video Segment Matching ---

To counter this problem, Fraunhofer IDMT has developed the Video Segment Matching, a software which recognizes identical video segments in different videos (even if content has been edited or transcoded), and determines their exact position and length. The tool extracts fingerprints from the videos under analysis, which are then matched against each other in a multi-stage, automated process. Users of the software benefit e. g. from more accurate accounting of copyright protected content, the detection of duplicates in archives, and improved management and storage of data.

Regarding the QC Components offered by the A/V Analyzing Toolbox, the Fraunhofer experts will be presenting new and enhanced functionalities, allowing automatic detection of errors and quality issues in digital audio and video content.

--- Music Detection ---

In addition, the A/V Analyzing Toolbox includes a component for automatic measurement of the exact amount of music in radio and TV programs. Copyright agencies may use this tool for accurate accounting and to make more efficient queries of programs, as music segments can be filtered out before concrete pieces of music are searched for by title.

Visitors interested in the A/V Analyzing Toolbox may feel free to stop by the Fraunhofer booth SU3714 in the South Upper Hall.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
