Object Detection in Video: Capture More than Images

Object Detection in Video: Capture More than Images

The amount of video is growing rapidly across industries. A recent IDC report projects that 79.4 zettabytes of data will be created by connected Internet of things (IoT) devices by 2025, mostly generated by video applications.1

Harnessing the full potential of this content deluge is no small task. Manual video analysis is a slow, labor-intensive process that is prone to errors and often not feasible due to lack of resources.

Failure to fully optimize content or effectively monitor and respond to live video can result in missed opportunities for a variety of industries. Below is a sampling of how object detection in video and overall video analytics technology is impacting specific industries:


Video Review and Approval Process

Video Review and Approval Process

Looking to tap into a video review and approval process for your enterprise video platform?

IBM has introduced a new workflow for IBM Enterprise Video Streaming that allows companies to setup an approval process. This includes having designated reviewers, or moderators, that are setup to approve or reject the publishing of videos. The video review process features automated emails, notifying reivewers when content is ready and also notifying uploaders after the video has been reviewed.


IBM Think 2020 Digital Event Case Study

IBM Think 2020 Digital Event Case Study

Due to the rapid pace of COVID-19, there has been a need to act with agility, resilience and unity in the face of evolving impacts. On March 19, 2020, with just 47 days before the in-person conference was scheduled to start, the decision was finalized to pivot to an all-digital experience for IBM Think as a result of COVID-19. This would be the first time the event would be online-only.

IBM Think Digital experience resulted in nearly 120,000 registrants and over 170,000 unique viewers. The Think content team took over 2500 sessions that were planned for the face to face event and selected the most impactful 250 sessions that could pivot the message to be COVID-19 relevant as well as engage attendees digitally. Over 45,000 hours of content were viewed by attendees with emphasis on design that would accelerate the transformation of the experience from in-person to all digital. Content was captioned in 7 different languages and delivered with live chats and moderated “Ask the expert” sessions for an audience size that was vastly beyond projected expectations.

Discover how IBM met this challenge through its own technology, leveraging both IBM Watson Media and the IBM Public Cloud to offer a scalable, reliable solution with global load balancing to help ensure a premium viewing experience for all.


Video Access Control for an Enterprise Video Platform

Video Access Control for an Enterprise Video Platform

Looking for more ways to restrict access to a video within your corporate video portal?

IBM Watson Media has introduced a video access control feature that allows the management of assets on a per video basis within an enterprise account. This can permit different access levels, be it for pre-approval or to very select individuals, while also including a notification system over email to relay when access has been granted. This feature, introduced in June 2018, was expanded in July 2020 to include advanced video access control features around lists.

This access control can function as part of a larger component of an overall internal communications strategy. For those who want to learn about optimizing their internal comms, download this Using Video for Internal Corporate Communications, Training & Compliance white paper.
