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.
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.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
