Dan Stieglitz presents The A.V.M. Club: Emerging video trends in time-indexed metadata

We have invited Dan Stieglitz to talk to our group about this exciting topic!

AGENDA

7:00 pm: meet, greet & eat

7:30 pm: main presentation

Followed by a healthy Q&A

 


TOPIC

Moving pictures ushered in the modern media age, but it wasn't long before synchronized-audio "talkies" became the dominant form of consumable media. Today we are sitting on the cusp of another dramatic shift in how media is delivered to us: with synchronized, time-indexed metadata streams. These "M" streams are emerging to accompany A/V streams and deliver informational and interactive content to us via first- and second-screen applications. This talk gives an overview of this technology, and its potential in shaping the emerging video landscape through new DAM and MAM tools.

    A really compelling problem you mentioned also shows the potential of this data: identifying what is a commercial for a tv show from an ambient environment. Thanks for the great overview!

    Time indexed metadata, basically the ability to correlate video content to data which can be either searchable or a trigger for additional visual display seems like a basic functionality in early stage development. Its not clear to me why meta data can not be just another track in the digital video file - no different than additional sound tracks; foreign language tracks, etc. If the issue is track capacity for metadata then then metadata could simply consist of pointers to a preloaded file. Comments?

      Hi Emil, the metadata can be another track in the DV file-- although without MPEG standards anyone can put whatever data they want in the file--so until there is a widely adopted de-facto standard or an official one any such use will be limited.

    • emil s.

      All you really need is a standard for the header of the file which tells the consumer of the file what the file format is... and that leaves the file format flexible. Getting agreement on that should not be all that difficult since it does not impose limits on the file format past the header.

    Great presentation. I wanted to share an example of crowd sourced Metadata for the second screen, http://linklib.org/ created by Simon Klose
