Our unique technology lets users find audio/video digital assets by searching for words spoken in the soundtrack. The Merlin Video Asset Management automatically creates metadata from the spoken word.
Imagine browsing a video database of hour-long interview shows. A user could enter a word or phrase (like "hurricane") and get back a list of shows that contain the word spoken somewhere in the soundtrack. When the user opens a specific show, the playhead is cued up to where the phrase is spoken!
The video asset management system uses speech-to-text technology to index the soundtrack against timecode. Clearly, this saves a tremendous amount of time otherwise lost to locating, mounting, viewing or jogging video clips.
The audio and video repository is built on our digital asset management software. That means, in one go, a user can define a search and find audio/video content along with related photos, graphics, scripts and other documents.
The Merlin Video Asset Management system is a database-driven solution, flexible enough to become the cornerstone of most any audio/video workflow:
The Merlin Video Asset Management system makes it easy to find the clip you need, eliminate the wrong ones and avoid re-shooting things you already have.
