Turner Studios to Integrate Nexidia Dialogue Search

Turner Studios, the production arm of the Turner Broadcasting System, is integrating Nexidia Dialogue Search into its daily operations.

Nexidia Dialogue Search helps broadcasters, movie studios, and online video providers monetize their massive asset libraries by finding any word or phrase spoken in their media, leveraging recorded dialogue as precisely timed metadata. Capable of searching 100,000 hours of audio, video, and standard metadata in less than a second, Nexidia's patented technology is available as both a stand-alone product and a software appliance for integration with existing media asset management systems.

The initial implementation at Turner Studios will support the Turner Sports library and production operations in their coverage of programming for the NCAA, NBA, NASCAR, PGA, Sports Illustrated, and other prestigious league sites. Nexidia Dialogue Search will also be used to search hundreds of hours of rare interview footage for Turner Classic Movies (TCM), allowing producers to search archive footage from some of Hollywood's finest talent.

"Dialogue is the richest, most pervasive and most under-utilized source of metadata in broadcast media," said Drew Lanham, senior vice president and general manager of media and entertainment at Nexidia. "Our dialogue search tools for individual video editors have already won several awards for innovation. Our partnership with Turner demonstrates that both the technology and the value of dialogue search scale to the largest asset management systems."
