In “a giant leap” for video users, it’s now possible, for the first time, to search your entire video collection to find the right content you’re looking for, simply by describing it. Simply describe the scene and MerlinOne’s NOMAD™ for Video takes you there: no effort required!
BOSTON, May 17, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — In a “giant leap” for video users, it’s now possible, for the first time ever, to search your entire video collection to find exactly the right content you are looking for, simply by describing it. Simply describe the scene and MerlinOne’s NOMAD™ for Video takes you there: no effort required!
“Video is an incredibly useful and impactful medium, but so far finding useful videos has been a nightmare. For the most part, you can only search for a filename; in a few systems, you can search by words spoken in the video.,” mentioned MerlinOne CEO David Tenenbaum. “But so many pivotal scenes don’t have a narrative: how do you find a kiss scene, or a car chase, or the sequence when the skier your company is sponsoring catches air on the way down while wearing your skis from brand ?”
MerlinOne has targeted this problem, recognizing it as the next frontier for digital asset management (DAM) and other applications. After five years of AI efforts, we have developed a solution: NOMAD™ for video.
How long would it take you to sift through several video files or a feature film to find a scene that you know is there, but have no idea what timecode it is? Turn hours of effort into milliseconds with NOMAD™ for Video!
Here are two examples of the many problems that NOMAD™ for Video solves for you:
Want to see your CEO clip with your company brand in the background?
Want to show a friend your favorite scene in a movie right now (no fumbling, no talking to stall while you frantically search)?
NOMAD™ for Video requires no effort on your part; just type in what you are looking for. It uses four separate AI modules to understand the video content of every scene in each of your videos, and no matter how many videos you have, it puts precisely what you’re looking for at your fingertips instantly.
“We see this as an absolute game-changer in the world of DAM,” Tenenbaum said. “This is a continuation of our company’s 30 years of innovation and significant advancements in the ease of use of DAM systems.”
NOMAD™ for Video, based on the popular NOMAD™ technology introduced for still images, is an option of MerlinOne’s DAM system and is also available via API as a service to add this amazing feature to other systems.
