ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nexidia, the leading provider of dialogue search and analysis technology for entertainment, enterprise and education media, today announced a licensing agreement with Sonic Foundry, Inc., the trusted market leader for video management and academic, enterprise and event webcasting, to automate dialogue-based tagging of rich media content.
Nexidia’s highly accurate, flexible and efficient dialogue-based tagging functionality will be embedded into the Mediasite webcasting platform which automates the capture, management, delivery and search of live and on-demand streaming videos and rich media presentations that combine video with slides.
Nexidia automates metadata tagging of the video content so users can accurately search and discover contextually relevant content contained in media files. As a result, students and business professionals can efficiently pinpoint specific content contained in rapidly growing video libraries being used for learning, outreach and professional development.
For example, educational institutions using Mediasite can provide students enrolled in a computer science class with the ability to search recorded lectures to quickly isolate relevant topics based on metadata indexes of keywords such as “programming languages”, “Java” or “AJAX”. Similarly, business professionals will be able to leverage Mediasite to quickly and accurately search and discover relevant content from webinars, webcasts and conferences.
“As our customers’ video libraries continue to grow, they are seeking better ways to index, manage and search the content on a more granular level. Enhancing the search capabilities with Nexidia will give our customers access to accurate and flexible video search,” said Gary Weis, CEO of Sonic Foundry.
Nexidia provides a powerful application development environment that enables licensing customers to deliver highly accurate, dialogue-based search capabilities within rich media content. It also supports complex queries and real-time monitoring and alerts of audio content. In addition, Nexidia technology deploys rapidly, is highly scalable and future-proofs customer investments with an extensible development environment.
“Partnering with industry leader Sonic Foundry, takes our technology directly to the education market, which is an important audience for Nexidia,” said Drew Lanham, SVP/GM, Media & Entertainment, at Nexidia. “By collaborating with Nexidia, Sonic Foundry increases the value and accessibility of their customers’ growing media assets by making what was previously unstructured content searchable and manageable.”
Nexidia is the audio and video search company with patented technologies and breakthrough applications that enable customers to quickly gain new insight, build competitive advantage, and realize the possibilities for monetization in audio and video content from media outlets, contact centers, government intelligence and legal discovery.
