Overcast MAX #4: Max Recognition

AI image recognition is one of the new-fangled terms being bandied around. So, what does it mean and what can it do for you?

In today’s media landscape, there’s a vast volume of unstructured content that organisations are trying to manage. Let’s face it, we’ve all been there: spending hours searching through content for an outstanding soundbite or a stunning shot that we know we filmed but, alas, it eludes us. 

Max Recognition

[Drum roll, please] Ladies and gentlemen, welcome Max Recognition. Not only will it save you time, it will also rescue you from frustration. 

Max Recognition uses the latest AI (artificial intelligence) and Machine Learning to identify people, objects, places, and events in videos and images. It’s like magic! Take a bow, Max!

Image recognition case studies

TV Broadcasters

Television broadcasters, by their nature, create huge amounts of content. But they are subject to strict broadcasting guidelines in relation to sensitive content. 

The traditional method of identifying such content was for people to painstakingly view hours and hours of tapes. But now, broadcasters can save hundreds if not thousands of hours a year by automating this moderation of inappropriate content using image recognition. 

Online marketplaces

An online marketplace is a website or mobile application that connects buyers and sellers. Its success depends on adeptly assessing the suitability or compatibility of those traders in order to match them up. 

For example, an influencer marketplace could use object and scene detection to segment its influencers based on what media they publish alongside their social media posts.

The Rise of the Creator Economy

There was a time when the phrase “Lights, Camera, Action” was only heard within the exclusive walls of Hollywood studios. Not so these days!

The past two decades have seen the rise of the Creator Economy…the lowering of technological barriers facilitates anyone to generate an income through delivering content to an audience.

Social media enables access to audiences without the need to go through a broadcaster or publisher.

But creators need access to technological tools to streamline the process of making fab content.

The Demand for Remote-Enabling Video Technology

Practically everyone owns a smartphone these days; therefore, we all carry a mini computer in our pockets. But, more than that, phones can record video clips and you can edit that footage through apps; so, effectively, we are all walking around with full video production capabilities.

Leveraging video for business was about to change too.

How Enterprises Are Creating Video More Easily

There’s no denying the domination of video with more than two billion monthly active users on YouTube and one billion on TikTok.

In our last post, we looked at trends in the acceleration of video management technology, which is driven by factors such as remote working, the ever-increasing demand for streaming content, and the rise of video content creators.

However, the ‘players’ — streamers, creators, and enterprises — have had to face the reality that the old way of working with video simply isn’t viable any more.
