At IBC 2019, AthenasOwl  demonstrated how AI can solve traditional challenges around content production, management, and delivery with solutions like:

  • Smart Catalog to enable deep search in large unexplored media archives

Smart Catalog can turn old content archives into assets of great value in the most cost-effective manner. By meeting the growing demands of the sports industry, these custom solutions are designed specifically for football and entertainment content. When post-production teams upload videos, the solution reads raw content, creates granular metatags for all moments, analyzes audio and video for accuracy, and delivers curated content. The teams can search and retrieve specific moments from massive content archives that have millions of hours of football content. This enables broadcasters to turn the video archives into revenue as well as reduce the total cost of ownership

  • Smart Workflows to automate manual repetitive post-production workflows

As an AI-assisted end-to-end automation solution, Smart Workflows enables content transformation and streamlined QC processes in the media supply chain. With increased operational efficiency of up to 80%, the solution facilitates faster speed-to-market and accelerates readiness for OTT and international distribution.

  • Smart Analytics to enable data-driven decisions

With an AI-powered Smart Archive, there is a massive opportunity for media companies to monetize their assets through TV show analysis, fan engagement, identifying new sponsorship opportunities, and tracking brand sponsorships. Use cases like these can help media companies make better-informed decisions on advertising budgets and increase the ROI on brand spends.
