ReCap

Video data mining platform

About

NMR is a media technology company that needed a video management application. There was a massive amount of data to scan and loads of videos to analyze, all of which we converted from a rather useless database into a handy application for business departments to mine, analyse, and acquire insight from.

Technology

ReCAP is the web application that manages the administration, storage, and UI of a solution. Ulam Labs performed frontend development on a web application based on the designs provided, and the frontend development covered various aspects, including:

◦ Facial recognition.

◦ Product placement (for example logos).

◦ Audio recognition.

◦ Video streams on a real-time basis.

Challenge

The project came with significant challenges:

◦ A web application that analyses loads of videos and photos with ease.

◦ A lightweight video player that’s easily navigable between shots, faces and logos.

◦ Essential metadata hidden in the files presented in a user-friendly, simple way.

Solution

We provided the client with a sophisticated, user-friendly frontend application that quietly processes massive amounts of video data. The resulting data can be used in all sorts of exciting and commercially valuable ways by various business departments in their everyday work.

Key features

Clear interface

The user interface and main parts of the system were very carefully planned and designed to create a user-friendly dashboard. The relevant data was grouped to keep all the information on one screen: shots, logos, faces and audio.

Sophisticated player with advanced navigation

We worked hard to create a lightweight player. Users can easily navigate between different shots, faces, and logos across the video, and changing a shot has a direct effect on the player.

Video uploader upgrade

The improvements we made to the uploader itself make a huge difference. Now the user uploads the file easily, then it’s processed and nicely presented.

Metadata research

An important aspect of the project was the optimized web browser, which had to ensure fast, intuitive research across different categories.

Directory explorer development

The directory explorer feature lets users create different catalogues and various ways to categorize metadata.
