Video remains the most engaging and shared type of content of all. It’s worth the effort even taking into account the extra investment in money, time, and resources it can take.
When NMR gave us the opportunity to develop a frontend to a web application designed to manage media content, we were delighted to help.
There was a massive amount of data to scan and loads of videos to analyse, all of which we converted from a useless database into a handy application for business departments to mine, analyse and acquire insight from. Read on to see how we did it!

NMR is a leading media technology solutions provider and software developer founded in 1992
They’ve been a member of the Trams Group, the largest B2B Apple Authorised Resellers in the UK, since 2017
They required a deep understanding of complex media workflows and the high performance technology requirements that support them
NMR customers include major broadcasters (for example ITV), global advertising agencies, Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 corporations, and utilities companies
They have offices in London and New York
Create a web application which enables the automated extraction of metadata (for example the detection of logos, faces, temporal segmentation, visual similarity and more)
Create a commercially viable, sustainable product to offer to customers in the media entertainment space
Enrich metadata using AI to analyze video content
Analyze video streams on a real-time basis, for example courtroom footage
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:
Product placement (for example logos)
Video streams on a real-time basis
The project lasted three months and the team comprised three Frontend Engineers plus a Project Manager.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
An important aspect of the project was the optimized web browser, which had to ensure fast, intuitive research across different categories.
The directory explorer feature lets users create different catalogues and various ways to categorize metadata.
The tech stack:
The tech stack we used included React, Rx.JS, Ant Design, and AWS, all highly respected technologies.
NFTs are an important driving force for crypto, already bringing in many new users to the space. CYBAVO–a blockchain and digital asset security provider headquartered in Singapore–wanted to leverage this new opportunity and add NFT support to their offering. To do so in a timely manner while ensuring security, we based it on our own OpenNFT marketplace, with further customizations.
The second time we got to work with Lendingblock, we took care of the end-to-end design and development of the crypto lending and borrowing platform for individuals. To offer the best experience, we rebuilt the whole product from scratch.
