let's talk

What is video and audio analytics?

By video and audio analytics we mean the analysis of visual and audio contents. These can be images, videos, audio materials, for example:

  • photo and video files
  • social media stories and reels
  • content of video hosting and sharing platforms
  • digitized (scanned) documents
  • music tracks
more and more visual and audio contents are produced

Why is video and audio analytics important?

The rise of video and audio content is undeniable. As these contents (e.g. YouTube videos, podcasts) become more widespread and popular – because they can be consumed faster and more conveniently – it has become essential that they can be processed, analysed and searched.
Whether it’s a business photo, a surveillance or security camera recording or an audio recording of an interview, there are many ways to analyse them.
As part of our text analytics platform, TAS Tagger solution was able to process textual content, but with the rapid growth in popularity and volume of video and audio materials, it has become essential that they also can be analysed. This required the integration of a solution that excels in this area.
