Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO) today announces new search and translation features in Mediasite Video Platform.
New integrations with technologies like IBM Watson combine speech-to-text cloud services with Mediasite’s video analytics and search capabilities.
Creating More Searchable and Accessible Videos
Mediasite extracts keywords from anything said or shown in PowerPoint slides, screencasts, handwriting, annotations and tags, and that metadata is used for returning search results.
Speech-to-text integration gives Mediasite full content search for everything said and shown in many languages, automatically indexing it without the need for manually adding tags. Additionally, it will automatically remove interjections, vocal pauses and filler words to create cleaner transcripts.
