NEW YORK, NY, July 27, 2016 – Piksel, a global leader in building successful online video businesses, is highlighting the newly launched Piksel Fuse Metadata™ solution at this year’s IBC show in Amsterdam.

Built on the foundation of the Piksel Palette, an end-to-end solution developed using a micro-services architecture (MSA) platform, the new Fuse Metadata product consolidates, enriches and augments metadata across both broadcast and OTT workflows. It also uses natural language processing, semantic search, image analysis and machine-learning technologies to create proprietary metadata on a scene-by-scene basis.

Fabrice Hamaide, President, Piksel said: “In today’s highly competitive market there’s a drive to deliver the best user experience, including a focus on improving the content discovery process. As a result, metadata is playing an increasingly important role and will continue to shape discovery, even influencing the actual content creation journey in the future. Improving metadata creates value on every level – from enabling new monetization opportunities to attracting new customers with the enhanced content discovery capabilities and broadening out catalogue utilisation.”

Piksel Fuse Metadata’s advanced analysis tools will automatically generate consistent, deep metadata across a customer’s entire catalogue and will be tailored specifically towards their service, content and viewer needs.

“For broadcasters and OTT providers there is a continued quest for competitive advantage. By using rich metadata to improve the customer experience, allowing viewers to search for specific themes or scenes, our customers can improve audience engagement and retention, as well as gain significant competitive edge.”

Piksel Fuse Metadata is built on the company’s flagship platform, the Piksel Palette, which through its modularity and flexibility helps the company deliver the best, most appropriate technology solutions that are tailored to customer needs.

Piksel executives will be present at IBC 2016 to showcase the latest product developments and discuss the ever-important issues of monetization of content, reaching new audiences, how businesses can expand their digital footprint, and the role the Palette can play in building a sustainable video business.
