MediaMixer has published two new tutorials on its community portal, free to access by registered members:
- Creating media fragments with video analysis techniques
- Media fragments in media metadata – the state in research and industry
They cover techniques and technologies to analyse media assets in order to determine the significant spatial and temporal regions which can be defined as separate media fragments. Each fragment can then be individually annotated with the concepts and topics they represent, using structured annotation models and ontologies to allow for semantic search and machine-automated processing.
The combination of these technologies can allow media owners to better prepare their media for retrieval and re-use, both internally and if desired by external parties who may have to agree to a specified license and/or pay a fee. Future tutorials by MediaMixer will address the topics of media fragment management, rights and re-use!
