Omnifluent Media Production Workbench

AppTek’s Omnifluent Media Production Workbench is a cloud-based platform which provides automated transcription and translation of audio, video and text in multiple languages with integrated human post editing. This cost-efficient solution delivers a media framework that combines AppTek’s automatic speech recognition (ASR) with hybrid machine translation (HMT) to rapidly review machine-generated output, perform post-editing and implement quality control. This scalable environment can process broadcast media, video programming, webcasts, social media, mobile and other forms of multimedia content.

The Workbench can produce automated transcripts for closed captioning, subtitling, and rich metadata for media production, monitoring and analytics. The transcripts generated by the ASR and HMT in the source and target languages are immediately available within the portal for editing to improve accuracy. With the click of a button, users can insert edited versions of the text back into the source video which the system automatically aligns with the original audio content.

By automating the labor-intensive tasks of closed captioning, subtitling and post editing, media companies can broaden their audience reach, save time and money, and enhance the overall production process.

Omnifluent media products are available through software as a service (SaaS), local installation and subscription delivery models.
