Metaliquid, the EU leading video recognition and content intelligence company, announced today the development of a deep learning platform that automatically creates television highlights in real-time. Working with Minerva, a leading provider of management platforms for the delivery of next-generation television services, Metaliquid AI tools analyzed the 2020 Vice Presidential debate and fed metadata to Minerva’s Smart Highlights service, which was also announced today. Viewers then enjoyed custom highlight reels based on speaker, topics and desired playback time.
Smart Highlights technology gives a new level of control to television subscribers. The Metaliquid technology features a sophisticated set of AI, Deep Learning, and computer vision algorithms that analyze video streams and generate metadata with predefined timestamped descriptive tags.
The integration of Minerva’s platform with Metaliquid’s technology unlocks unprecedented hyper-personalized content consumption by enabling users to select highlight reels that fit within the time available, or focus on topics of interest. Moreover, this unique solution opens up possibilities for Television service providers, media companies and broadcasters worldwide to:
· Increase fan engagement
· Index media contents to enhance workflow efficiencies
· Unlock hidden revenue streams via advertising or subscriptions
“A tailored, adaptive customer experience is critical to building long-term, profitable relationships with subscribers. Unlock videos’ metadata, make it simple, and flexible for customers’ needs is the key to success. In partnership with Minerva, we have assembled a best-of-breed, turnkey solution to create customized highlights automatically,” Maria Lodolo, Head of Sales at Metaliquid stated. “Metaliquid technology has proven that AI-driven solutions are mature enough to disrupt the media and entertainment industry and to increase viewers’ enthusiasm, interaction, and social sharing.”
“Smart Highlights not only make content more valuable for operators and advertisers, but it also creates a more personalized and engaging experience for consumers,” said Fabrizio Capobianco, Chief Innovation Officer at Minerva. “Along with our partners at Metaliquid, we are redefining the way people will consume ‘appointment TV.’”
