Cybercom Group of Stockholm Uses Audible Magic Content Recognition to Synchronize Audio Descriptions and Spoken Subtitles with Movie Sound Tracks
Apr 8 15
Audible Magic announced that Cybercom Group of Stockholm has licensed its technology for Sweden’s “Available Cinema” project, making movie experiences more accessible to those with sight and reading impairments. Available Cinema, a government project managed by the Swedish Film Institute in cooperation with the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority, enables audiences with any range of vision impairment or dyslexia to enjoy pre-recorded audio descriptions of the screen action and spoken subtitles. A mobile app provides narrative through the user’s earphones, using Audible Magic’s audio fingerprinting technology for frame-accurate synchronization with the movie soundtrack. Cybercom created the Disabilities Platform, consisting of a software development kit, which can be easily incorporated within a mobile app, and separate tools to enable movie post-producers to package ‘fingerprints’ of the movie soundtrack with audio descriptions for app users to download from Sweden’s Cinema Guide server. The Swedish Film Institute intends to make the Disabilities Platform available internationally to movie distributors, broadcasters and organizations representing the vision and reading impaired.
Audible Magic Introduces Upgraded DMCA Tool for Colleges and Universities
Feb 3 15
Audible Magic Corporation announced the CopySense Network Appliance 10G. This is a new version of Audible Magic's CopySense Appliance that now accommodates a 10 GB network interface. The CopySense Appliance is popular with college and university IT organizations for its ability to reduce workload and expenses related to Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown notices. It also automates actions that educate students and other campus network users toward good digital citizenship with regard to the use and sharing of copyrighted content. With a CopySense Appliance monitoring the campus network, users that engage peer-to-peer (P2P) networks to download or share copyrighted media content get automatically redirected to information on campus network use policies. These responses are only initiated when the user attempts copyright-infringing, public sharing ofmedia content. Sharing of non-copyrighted files on P2P networks is ignored, thus allowing the campus to embrace and allow P2P file sharing for non-infringing uses. As users become educated and stop participating in public sharing of copyrighted media, the number of DMCA infractions is reduced. The institution then spends less resource following up on takedown notices.
Audible Magic and RGB Networks Announce Dynamic Ad Insertion for TV Broadcast Streams
Sep 3 14
Audible Magic and RGB Networks announced the companies are working together to enable cable and satellite broadcast network operators to replace ads embedded in broadcast streams when those streams originally lack advertising markers. The solution is particularly applicable outside the US, where ad markers such as SCTE-35 cues are often not included in broadcast content. Audible Magic will demonstrate the solution September 12-16 at the IBC2014 Show in Amsterdam, RAI Hall 14, stand number 14.K03. Audible Magic offers a hardware appliance that monitors incoming broadcast streams and applies its patented content fingerprint-matching technique to identify advertising content against a hosted database of all ads appearing in the network. When ad content is detected in the broadcast stream, Audible Magic's Ad Detection Appliance signals RGB Networks' ad-marking device that then injects SCTE-35 cues, with splice-frame accuracy, into the transcoded stream. Ad insertion equipment that responds to SCTE-35 cues can then be utilized downstream to enable ad replacement that is invisible to the viewer yet cost-effective to implement. Audible Magic's ad detection can be applied to live linear broadcasts or to video on demand, cloud DVR or personal DVR applications. The combined Audible Magic-RGB Networks solution works for both QAM or IPTV distribution networks.
