IBC 2017: Veritone Leaves Amsterdam a Winner

AI platform firm Veritone walked out of the 2017 IBC show a winner.

Its aiWARE — an on-premise and cloud version of Veritone’s artificial intelligence (AI) platform — earned a NewBay Best of Show Award, as part aiWARE’s integration into Xcellis, the scale-out workflow storage solution from Quantum.

Criteria for the award included feature set, ease of use, innovation, value and versatility.

“By integrating Veritone’s multiengine AI capabilities into a Quantum StorNext-managed environment, aiWARE for Xcellis brings the power of cloud analytics to on-premise data. Users can now leverage leading-edge cognitive services and applications to extract new value from their video and audio content, including massive stores of archived content that cannot easily be moved to the cloud,” the companies said in a statement. “Situating powerful AI processing behind corporate firewalls, the Quantum-Veritone solution is ideal for companies with significant investments in on-premise storage and/or specific latency, cost or security requirements for cloud storage.”

The joint solution allows media companies to create more customized VOD offerings via metadata tagging of existing content, and accelerate post-production by using enhanced context-based search and discovery.

“Metadata tagging has traditionally been a manual, time-consuming process, making it cost-prohibitive to capture anything more than basic information for large-scale stored content,” said Keith Lissak, senior director of media and entertainment solutions marketingfor Quantum.

“By enabling fast, automated tagging and cognitive analysis, aiWARE for Xcellis overcomes this challenge and allows users to extract dramatically more value from their digital assets. The NewBay Best of Show Award speaks to the power of this Quantum-Veritone integrated solution, and we look forward to extending its benefits across the media industry.”
