Integrated solution provides on-premise cognitive analytics

Quantum has unveiled aiWARE for Xcellis, an on-premise and cloud version of the AI platform from Veritone.

Bringing Veritone's multi-engine AI capabilities into a Quantum StorNext-managed environment, aiWARE enables users to leverage Veritone's cognitive services and applications to extract new value from their on-premise video and audio content. 

Situating powerful AI processing behind corporate firewalls, the integrated solution is designed for companies with significant investments in on-premise storage and/or latency, cost or security concerns about cloud storage.

The product is additionally enables users to creat more customised VoD offerings through metatadata tagging of existing content, while providing better ROI data to sponsors by identifying where and how often logos, as well as spoken and text brand integrations, appear in broadcast media and redistributed clips. 

According to the company, the combination of Quantum's StorNext-powered Xcellis with Veritone aiWARE enables users to apply AI to on-premise content that previously could not be leveraged for this purpose and to add new content for analysis as that content is captured. 

Quantum will highlight the new solution at IBC2017 between 15th and 19th September, at stand 7.B27. 

Keith Lissak, senior director, media and entertainment solutions marketing, Quantum, said:"The integration of AI with on-premise storage enables organisations to apply cognitive analytics to video and audio content and generate much more robust metadata without the cost and hassle of moving their extensive media libraries to the cloud. 

"This will be a game-changing capability for many media companies, as it opens up new realms of possibility for monetising these libraries."
