Autonomy and Virage have chosen this year’s IBC to announce the integration of the two companies’ key technologies.
Virage’s SmartEncode/VideoLogger/ControlCentre software is a leading platform for the automated capture, encoding and indexing of video. Autonomy’s Dremedia technology integrates structured and unstructured data by processing text, voice and video and then orders it by concept.
Autonomy acquired Virage in early September, for $24.8m, specifically with this sort of integration in mind: to enable customers to search and visualise their media stores. Given that many of Virage’s customers are large corporations or governments these media archives are likely to be vast.
