With a new software tool for automatic detection of music and speech sequences, Fraunhofer IDMT offers a highly effective solution to determine the exact amount of music and speech in radio and TV programs. The tool can be used to optimize broadcasting programs or provide accurate accounting for copyright agencies.
Using Fraunhofer IDMT’s new software tool, the amount of music and speech in radio and TV programs no longer needs to be determined by means of tedious manual work (typically personnel reading through audio content lists). The tool is able to detect and measure general audio categories (music, speech, music and speech combined, silence) both in live streams and in stored digital audio files.
Depending on the requirements, the resolution can be chosen as desired (from several seconds down to 100 milliseconds), so that optimal results can be achieved.
The tool is scalable and can easily be integrated with standard workflows and components. It can be used in production and live streaming environments, both online and offline.
Easy data export
The tool integrates with content management systems. For data output, users may choose between XML files, cue sheets, or other standard data export formats.
