Comcast Technology Solutions, a division of Comcast Cable, has launched Video Artificial Intelligence (VideoAI), a software-as-a-service (SaaS) that can help companies understand and analyse video (live and on-demand), audio, and closed captions.
They can then create actionable metadata around content assets, generate and manage new content, improve advertising efficiency, and streamline operations.
VideoAI is based on commercial-scale implementations created and deployed by Comcast, NBCUniversal, and Sky.
Comcast Technology Solutions now provides this capability to the broader media and entertainment industry as a fully managed, 24×7 service.
Users can use VideoAI to automatically analyse their video assets to identify and tag key on-screen moments (hard cuts, black frames and transition); audio events (silence and specific sounds), and much more to support enhanced understanding of video content.
Calling VideoAI a “potential game changer”, Fraser Stirling, Global Chief Product Officer, Comcast and Sky, said, “With VideoAI as a managed service, companies can quickly launch a range of AI-powered video services at scale, and benefit from the investments we’ve made internally, to drive their own business objectives forward.”
With VideoAI, content owners, operators and advertisers can now work with Comcast Technology Solutions to develop their own business use cases and deploy them using a secure, flexible and ready-to-use service.
