The second and final round of field trials of TOSCA-MP has taken place in January at RAI in Turin, Italy and VRT in Brussels, Belgium. More than 30 users from different organisations in the broadcast and media industry had the opportunity to get a hands-on experience of the tools for automated information extraction and search developed in the project.
After a short introduction, four stations were available for testing and in-depth discussions, each focusing on a use case supported by project results:

  • Content search across multilingual repositories
  • Distributed workflows for media production
  • Rich annotations for archived assets
  • Assisted production of sports events

We were very happy to welcome so many interested and committed visitors to the field trials, and the immediate feedback was very encouraging. The more detailed responses in the questionnaires filled by the participants are currently being analysed and will be published in March.

Successful IBC 2013 for TOSCA-MP

At the Future Zone of this year’s IBC, TOSCA-MP successfully presented the proof-of-concept system, including the Distributed Repository Framework (DRF) for storing essence and metadata, the Metadata Production and Management Framework (MPMF) for executing content analysis processes, the Control & Configuration user interface for starting and managing these processes, as well as the search system and result visualisation. Several content analysis services were included, some of them running live at the booth. For viewing and validating results, the verification tool for quality analysis results and an HTML5-based viewer for MPEG-7 AVDP documents containing analysis results was shown.
The TOSCA-MP presentation attracted numerous visitors, including a group of Flemish Members of Parliament and representatives from the media industry on a guided tour through the IBC show. Automatic content analysis is clearly a hot topic, with the quality analysis and related standardisation activities (EBU QC, FIMS QA) paving the way for a broader adoption of these technologies by the industry. The search system and novel result presentation also received high attention from the visitors.
See some photos and read an article in the IBC daily (p.59).

The next round of field trials will take place in January 2014: On Jan. 20-21 in Turin at RAI CRIT, and on Jan. 23-24 in Brussels at VRT.
During these field trial days, you will be able to test and evaluate different user interfaces as well as methods and systems behind, that have been created during the project. This will allow you to see how a future media annotation and search workflow could possibly look like. You’ll also have the opportunity to provide feedback to the consortium.
For more details, see the folder.
