NAB Show 2018

At the NAB Show 2018 in Las Vegas, Fraunhofer IDMT presents its latest technologies for A/V analysis and search at Fraunhofer-booth in the South Hall (upper), Stand SU4 916.

Fraunhofer IDMT develops various state-of-the-art technologies for the automatic analysis of audio-visual material allowing broadcasters and digital archives to fully exploit the potential of their content. They can easily be integrated in existing systems and applications.

At this year's NAB Show we present robust fingerprinting-based segment matching and matching technologies including improved audio segment matching algorithms to identify partial matches even for very short segment duration and noisy conditions. This facilitates, for example, content tracking when collaborating with external workers.

Furthermore we show

  • metadata extraction technologies for the automatic, efficient annotation of A/V content items
  • automatic quality control components for error detection
  • audio forensics tools to assess the credibility of user-generated content
  • audio phylogeny analysis components to calculate the processing history within a set of transcoded copies.

This set of technologies is complemented by know-how and tools to support multi-modal analysis & recommendation and privacy-aware data analysis and recommendation based on a unique approach that strongly decouples virtual IDs to real IDs in a system.

Quality Control

Various components for automatic base-band detection of A/V errors including e.g. blocking, blurring, ringing, noise, freeze, field order, etc., which have also been included into easyDCP, the professional movie post-production solution provided by Fraunhofer IIS.

Audio Forensics

Various tools for audio acquisition, coding and editing footprint analysis: Automatic detection of recording devices, e.g. to adapt further content processing, detection of traces of previous encoding to avoid quality problems, and editing detection.

Segment Matching

Robust detection of A/V material reuse within and across A/V content collections

Audio Phylogeny Analysis

Family research for audio: Automatic detection of parent-child relationships in a set of near-duplicate audio items or segments.

Multi-modal Analysis & Recommendation

To support meaningful queries, media systems require many heterogeneous analysis components. The Open-Source Framework MICO helps to simplify the efficient integration and flexible orchestration of extractors.


PAUTH - Privacy-aware Analysis and Recommendation

Creates strongly decoupled virtual IDs to real IDs in a system thereby effectively hiding data sources, useful for privacy-preserving data analysis and recommendation, and for cooperative data usage among competitors.
