DeepVA product used



DeepVA Face Training Theme for VidiCore

The DeepVA Face Training Theme for VidiCore is an application for visualizing the capabilities of the DeepVA Face Recognition & Analysis Services in VidiNet. The application includes features for analyzing video content with DeepVA AI services in VidiNet, managing and organizing the face data model/database with VidiCore, training the data model with known faces before analyzing content, manually capturing faces in videos, and more. The powerful indexing services in VidiCore make it easy to find and display people and faces using time-coded metadata combined with AI. At its core, the Face Training Theme is a lightweight application with minimal configuration required. The only prerequisite is a live instance of VidiCore with an S3 storage, a connected VidiCoder, and one or more connected DeepVA services. The DeepVA Services in VidiNet The “Face Training and Analysis Powered by DeepVA” service will enable the powerful AI capabilities of DeepVA for analyzing video content to find faces both unknown and known to the system. Each finding will be fingerprinted and compared, with duplicates being grouped into one fingerprint. All findings will preserve the timecode where the face was found, in order to properly display search results in the user interface. This service also offers the ability to pre-train a face model before analyzing large amounts of content. The “Face and Label Extractor Powered by DeepVA”-service will do a thorough frame-by-frame analysis of videos to find faces and match this with any textual information found in the lower third area of the video. Analysis results from this service will NOT preserve the timecode from where the face was found. The output, however, can be used to pre-train the face data model for usage with the other DeepVA service, i.e. “Face Training and Analysis by DeepVA”. The output of the “Face and Label Extractor powered by DeepVA”-service is, simply put, a set of still images of a person’s face alongside a suggested name of the person based on the findings in the lower thirds.
