Los Angeles, CA – September 10, 2018 – ContentWise, the leading provider of user experience and metadata automation solutions for pay TV, broadcast, OTT and streaming operators, today announces the introduction of a slate of new Knowledge Factory features and capabilities.
Knowledge Factory is ContentWise’s advanced suite of tools for TV metadata ingestion, augmentation and publishing. It enables operators to generate and deliver richer, more meaningful and deeply-linked metadata for digital content.
Today’s release completes Knowledge Factory’s goal of becoming a true end-to-end, one-source-of-truth metadata orchestration engine, covering the entire metadata lifecycle: from ingestion to validation, transformation, deduplication, reconciliation and enrichment.
With Knowledge Factory, editors can now automate previously manual processes, create enriched metadata from multiple sources and create content collections based on semantic relationships. In turn, TV subscribers enjoy rich multiscreen interfaces with semantic navigation, detailed information about what they are going to watch and metadata presentations that adapt to each device.
The new Knowledge Factory enables several advanced use cases:
At the heart of Knowledge Factory is its knowledge graph-based database, which, powered by semantic and machine learning technology, understands the connections between tidbits of information buried inside metadata feeds and organizes it in a dynamic, evolving network of usable data.
Knowledge Factory can ingest and process data from a variety of sources, including customer proprietary metadata as well as licensed or open source databases, such as, for example, Common Sense, Gracenote, IMDb, Metacritic, Metaliquid, OMDb, Prime Focus, Rotten Tomatoes, Thuuz, TMDb or Wikidata, as well as language-specific or regional sources, such as BabelEye, Cinoche, European Metadata Group, Naver and more.
ContentWise is the leading user experience management solution for pay TV, broadcast, OTT and streaming operators. ContentWise helps its customers’ marketing, editorial and content acquisition teams predict user intent, personalize the watching experience, optimize content performance and automate programming. The ContentWise software suite combines UI personalization, self-tuning automation, editorial management tools, predictive analytics, testing and targeting capabilities. ContentWise customers are leading operators worldwide, including Cablevisión Argentina, iStreamPlanet, maxdome, Mediaset, MultiMedia Polska, RTE, SK Broadband, Sky, Telefonica and TrueVisions.
Free ad-supported television platforms are the next big thing in M&E. Creating FAST channels will no longer be enough to maximize the value of the linear content catalog. Operators will need to deliver a unique personalized user experience.
