SnapStream today announced the 6.1 release of its Enterprise TV Media Monitoring technology. The release features groundbreaking language intelligence delivering the most relevant TV search results, new TV playlists for sequenced playback of multiple pieces of content, expanded cloud sharing functionality, and enhancements to the Recording Manager for easier management of recording priorities. SnapStream also launched the new SnapStream ASI product line, which enables broadcasters to ingest and record the ASI format (Asynchronous Serial Interface).
What’s New in SnapStream 6.1?
Smarter TV Search = Better Results
Thanks to new advances in language intelligence in 6.1, SnapStream’s TV search results are enriched for the better, bringing you a wider variety of useful findings and relevant information every time you search.
Our TV search engine has always delivered exact matches with bull’s-eye accuracy and now, we have expanded the target zone to include closely related, broad matches that are equally as meaningful but not so glaringly obvious.
Hi, everyone! My name is Mike Speriosu and I was the main developer of a set of TV search improvements in SnapStream 6.1 that involve language. I recently finished my doctorate at the University of Texas at Austin where I worked on problems at the intersection of human language and computer science, and was lucky enough to join the SnapStream development team a few months ago.
Products like SnapStream are part of an ongoing trend in technology to help people interact with each other and with computers using their most advanced and expressive mode of communication: language. After working on a variety of linguistic and software problems in academia, I was very eager to apply my skills to a real-life product that could benefit from more linguistic intelligence.
One of the most compelling features of SnapStream has always been its ability to search recordings and send alerts based on what’s said on TV, and now recording and searching closed caption data work better than ever.
Next week, we’re heading to the Big Apple to showcase our TV monitoring technology at Content and Communications World (CCW). Many broadcast folks refer to this hallmark event as the NAB of the East Coast. Since NAB in April, SnapStream’s engineers have been diligently working to launch SnapStream 6.0 and tons of new capabilities.
Whether you’re a current user or considering SnapStream for the first time, you’ll find that everything in the new version helps to enrich your production workflow for recording, searching, clipping and repurposing TV content.
TV Monitoring in Canadian Government
We’re looking forward to showcasing new SnapStream 6.0 next week at GTEC, Canada’s largest government technology event. SnapStream will be at booth 1112 for the tech exhibition, which spans October 8 and 9 at the Ottawa Convention Centre.
Just like in the United States, various arms of the Canadian government rely on SnapStream, because it provides an easy and affordable way to monitor TV coverage for public information purposes. You can record and archive important TV coverage, search for TV mentions, create unlimited TV clips and ultimately, share those clips with others.
Introducing SnapStream 6.0, a new generation of TV monitoring technology that’s inspired by your versatile workflows and needs. This fresh release of SnapStream delivers an array of powerful new tools that will expand your capabilities when working and collaborating with TV.
