Computer Vision is a science that aims to teach a computer to understand the content of a scene from an image or video. The integration of Object Recognition in machine learning helps AI’s capabilities to grow, as they use it to understand and recognize visual content.
Despite being an extremely simple task for a human being, understanding what is in an image is a hugely complex task for computer software.
The growth of AI brought us to think about the possibilities of applying these techniques to professional video workflows and use computer vision to convert the video “itself” into metadata that can be easily searched and cataloged.
So, what’s the scenario right now?
Imagine you have a library of hundreds of hours of video and you want to know what appears in each file and when.
If you did not catalog the file with that metadata and locators this task will require someone to watch the entire collection…
MAM4PRO can do this for you with AI.
How can MAM4PRO do that for you?
You will only need to enable it in the MAM4PRO general settings.
In addition to the current activation of Metadata extraction, Thumbnails, and Video Preview, there will also be the possibility of enabling Artificial Intelligence.
Once this feature is enabled, when an asset is detected, if there is a metadata sidecar with the detected object’s description, it will be loaded and previewed each time the asset is played.
The detected objects will be outlined with boxes that also will contain the name of the object to which they refer. In the player’s timeline, it will also be marked the position where there are detected objects.
When ingesting new content, this feature may be enabled for each workflow profile in its advanced options. By enabling the Artificial Intelligence Metadata Enhancement option, during the processing chain, the media will be analyzed and a sidecar file will be created with the detected object’s description.
As you can see, this is the current state-of-the-art of AI object recognition implementations on MOG solution MAM4PRO.
Developers all around will keep working on improving machine learning solutions, and Artificial Intelligence will get smarter, and more advanced as time goes by. With MOG’s AI Object Recognition, you can simplify and automate your metadata logging, and make use of locators for better usability of the solution.
