Content Analysis and AI Tools for Media Asset Management, Production and Archiving

© Tsidvintsev

Fraunhofer IDMT develops cutting-edge technologies for the automatic analysis of audio-visual material, which can easily be integrated in existing systems and applications, thereby allowing broadcasters and digital archives to fully exploit the potential of their content.

Audio and Video Matching

Our unique combination of audio and video matching and phylogeny analysis tools identifies content reuse and partial overlaps and detects the content processing history:

Audio Forensics and Fake Detection

The Audio Forensics Toolset detects recording, editing and coding traces within audio material and can be used for quality control and tampering detection:

  • microphone analysis, to identify microphones from recordings and harmonize material from different microphones
  • codec analysis, to detect traces from previous coding steps, and to detect double encoding
  • bit depth and ENF analysis, for the analysis of how content was recorded and processed
  • audio tampering detection tools, based on the aforementioned approaches


Trustworthy AI, Security and Privacy

We offer many years of experience with combining systematic evaluation of AI tools, security and copyright solutions, and privacy protection. Where others focus on conflicts between analysis, privacy and security requirements, we focus on their harmonization and provide respective tools:

  • on-premises analysis and metadata exchange and enrichment, without the need to provide sensitive material to intermediaries

  • systematic evaluation of AI tools, including automatic and comparative testing of analysis components

  • privacy enhancing tools (PET), including anonymization and re-identification analysis and a patented approach to strongly decoupled virtual IDs (pseudonyms) to real IDs in a system, enabling you to provide privacy-enhanced analysis and recommendations

  • security and privacy-by-design solutions for AI and media systems

  • copyright management tools, to simplify dealing with legal complexities and uncertainties
