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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
