Dalet Speaks A New Language With Nexidia's Dialogue Search
Leading Enterprise Media Asset Management solution leverages dialogue search to find hidden value in large media libraries
AMSTERDAM - September 9, 2011 - Dalet Digital Media Systems, a world leader in enterprise Media Asset Management (MAM) solutions for broadcasters, is pleased to announce its collaboration with Nexidia, the leading provider of dialogue search and audio analysis technology for the media and entertainment industries. Nexidia’s award-winning dialogue search quickly and accurately finds any word or phrase spoken in recorded media, speeding production, reducing logging and transcription costs, and discovering hidden value in the largest media libraries. Working hand-in-hand with Dalet’s Enterprise Media Asset Management solutions, Nexidia’s dialogue search will allow editors, journalists, producers, archivists, and others to search and retrieve assets that traditional metadata searches would likely miss.
“Integrating Nexidia dialogue search into our ecosystem gives Dalet users innovative new ways to find the content they need amidst massive amounts of audio and video material,” says Raoul Cospen. “Because Nexidia ships as a module, Dalet users will be able to easily add dialogue search to their existing system, expanding traditional search capabilities without disturbing operations, and with virtually no user training.”
Closely integrated with Dalet’s systems, Nexidia’s patented technology:
- Searches hundreds of thousands of hours of media in just seconds
- Finds any word or phrase, including slang, brand and proper names
- Is highly tolerant of spelling errors, individual accents and poor audio quality
- Works in conjunction with standard metadata search
- Supports Multiple languages and dialects, including US, UK and Australian English, European French, European and Latin American Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch and Modern Standard Arabic
“The value of your assets is limited to your ability to quickly and easily find what you need,” adds Drew Lanham, SVP/General Manager of Media for Nexidia. “Case studies have shown that dialogue search returns 10-100 times as many relevant results as standard metadata alone. Since Dalet’s customers manage many of the largest media libraries in the world, dialogue search will clearly help them to get more value from their assets.”
