NETIA MAM Solution Grows Even More Powerful With Integration of MediaSpeech® Speech-to-Text Engine

vecsysMontpellier, France — Nov. 4, 2013 — NETIA today announced a partnership with Vecsys, a leader in the speech-to-text market, through which the latter company’s MediaSpeech® “speech2text” engine will be integrated into the NETIA MAM (media asset management) solution to make full-text transcription and search capabilities available alongside video in the MAM interface, enabling automated transcription of audio tracks accompanying any ingested video. This new capability makes the NETIA MAM an even more powerful solution for indexing, enriching, storing, retrieving, and monetizing A/V content.

By converting audio tracks into searchable transcriptions, the MediaSpeech engine not only supports faster and more effective content searches, but also enables more comprehensive extraction of metadata and more extensive automated indexing,” said NETIA. “These benefits are significant individually, and together they yield a tremendous boost in the efficiency with which users can find and use the content they want or need.”


Vecsys is very excited about this partnership with NETIA,” said Béatrice Bacconnet, Vecsys CEO. “Video and audio productions are extremely precious assets, but they are   often underutilized because traditional searches are blind to their true content. The combination of the NETIA MAM with our Vecsys MediaSpeech speech-to-text solution is cracking the code to deep audio and video content management; it’s opening a range of new possibilities for producers, broadcasters, journalists, and analysts, as well as the public at large.”

The incorporation of proven MediaSpeech technology into the NETIA MAM makes it even easier for media companies to deliver content according to their customers’ demands. From ingest to distribution in applications ranging from media logging to production, postproduction, and archiving, NETIA MAM users can very simply access, search, browse, and retrieve content through a single interface tailored to their work.
