ContentWise launches advanced metadata processing engine Knowledge Factory as stand-alone product
August, 19, 2015, Milan –ContentWise™, the personalization, discovery and recommendations solution for digital TV content, today announcesthe release of the latest version of its metadata management solution, ContentWise Knowledge Factory, and its launch as a standalone product offering. The ContentWise Knowledge Factory is an integrated set of metadata management software and tools that help operators source, enrich, integrate and maintain better content metadata.
In today’s OTT and digital TV landscape, catalog complexity and metadata quality are still proving to be major challenges for operators and content providers. Viewers have the option to watch content across linear TV, catch-up, DVR, TVOD and SVOD, and as a result, operators are struggling to understand metadata coming from several different sources. In order for service providers to deliver a seamless TV experience, content cannot live in these silos and metadata must be cleaned and harmonized in order to provide the most value.
The ContentWise Knowledge Factory blends, reconciles, de-duplicates and enriches data from different sources, eliminating metadata silos to deliver personalized TV experiences. While improving content-based personalization, it also extracts maximum value from metadata licenses with third-party data providers, creating non-obvious links between data. It also includes live feeds of dynamic data such as trending shows and sports events.
Unique features of the new ContentWise Knowledge Factory release include:
Editorial Tools for Metadata:
“Quite simply, having better quality metadata and the tools to support this provides a number of benefits to operators and viewers in today’s TV landscape,” said Paolo Bozzola, CEO of ContentWise. “Not only does it enable a better UX and better personalization results, but the automation of complex and repetitive tasks also produces business benefits, reducing costs, accelerating time to market, eliminating errors. Ultimately, video service providers need their metadata in one place if they want to deliver seamless and compelling TV experiences – and our Knowledge Factory does just that.”
Knowledge Factory will be available in 2 versions, Knowledge Factory Lite and Knowledge Factory SaaS. Knowledge Factory Lite is included in the ContentWise Personalization System and includes metadata ingestion and internal reconciliation. Knowledge Factory SaaS is a separate product that includes metadata ingestion, enrichment, normalization, blending and editorial tools for metadata management.
ContentWise will be bringing its Knowledge Factory and Personalization System to this year’s IBC. The company will be exhibiting in Hall 14, on stand 14.K05.
