  • Visual text recognition (OCR): Extracts text that's visually displayed in the video.
Audio insights
  • Automatic language detection: Automatically identifies the dominant spoken language. Supported languages include English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Chinese (Simplified), Japanese, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese. If the language can't be identified with confidence, Video Indexer assumes the spoken language is English

  • Keywords extraction: Extracts keywords from speech and visual text
  • Named entities extraction: Extracts brands, locations and people from speech and visual text via NLP
  • Sentiment analysis: Identifies positive, negative and neutral sentiments from speech and visual text
