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.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
