Video Content for the News Industry
Vasileios Mezaris, CERTH-ITI
Project Overview
Thessaloniki, December 2017

• Motivation: UGC and the News industry
• Use cases & examples
• Our promise
• Overall approach
• Integrated InVID technologies
• Project consortium and funding agency
• Contact
Outline
www.invid-project.eu
3
• User Generated Content (UGC): a valuable resource…
• Digital media revolution & convergence of social media with broadband
connectivity are bringing breaking news to online video platforms
• News organizations often rely on user-generated recordings of breaking
and developing news events shared via social media
• …but also a tricky one
• Deception facilitated by access to sophisticated editing and content
management tools
• Rapid spread of fake information in electronic networks
• Careful verification of third-party content is necessary for
reputable news outlets; at present, this manual process
• Reduces their ability to break news quickly
• Increases their costs in times of tight budgets
Motivation: UGC and the News industry
www.invid-project.eu
4
• Haiti earthquake video hoax
• Video from a previous earthquake in California
published by major media, slightly modified
(cropped) and re-circulated in social media as a
Haiti video; picked-up and aired by mainstream
media for hours
• Eagle video hoax
• Video of an eagle snatching a baby posted on
YouTube, went viral; later, careful examination
revealed inconsistencies in the shadows of the
eagle’s flight path
• Presidential fake picture
• Video frame of a surgery operation in Mexico in
2008, which was sold to and mistakenly published
by a top newspaper in January 2013 as a fake
image of the late Venezuelan president Hugo
Chavez in a Cuban hospital
Use cases & examples

“InVID will build a platform providing services to detect,
authenticate and check the reliability and accuracy of
newsworthy video files and video content spread via social
media”
This platform
• Will enable novel newsroom applications for broadcasters, news agencies,
web pure-players, newspapers and publishers;
• Will allow them to integrate social media content into their news output
• Without struggling to know if they can trust the material, and
• Without struggling to reach the user to ask permission for re-use
Our promise

Overall approach
www.invid-project.eu
7
• Tool for newsworthy video collection and management
InVID Multimodal Analytics Dashboard
www.invid-project.eu
• Story detection across social
media channels
• Story-based newsworthy
video identification
• Automatic metadata
extraction and indexing
• Content exploration and
visualization
• Geographic distribution of
emerging stories
• Embedded playback at the video- and fragment-level
• Verification of selected videos (using the Verification Application)
• Automated generation of reports in PDF format
• Accessible at: https://invid.weblyzard.com
8
• Tool for verification of selected newsworthy videos
InVID Verification Plugin
www.invid-project.eu
• Free! Get it from: http://www.invid-project.eu/verify
•
• Check prior video use:
• Reverse video search on the Web using
YouTube thumbnails or InVID-extracted
keyframes
• Check contextual information:
• Social-media-based contextual analysis
• View location, time and other video
metadata
• Keyframe/image inspection by
magnifying glass
• Check image forensics:
• Image/Keyframe forensic filters
• Find more related videos:
• Advanced Twitter search
9
• Tool for advanced video verification
• Check prior video use at the video-segment level:
InVID Verification Application
www.invid-project.eu
•
•
• Reverse video search also in the InVID repository; inspection by parallel playback
of query and duplicate video
• Check video origin and rights:
• Video logo detection
• Video rights management
• Check video forensics:
• Advanced video forensic
filters
• Frame-level video inspection
in the player
• Check additional contextual information:
• Also assess historical weather data
• Store the automatic analysis results and manually add evaluation
comments and notes.
10
• Tool for newsworthy video contribution by the public
InVID Mobile Application
www.invid-project.eu
• Capture videos of breaking or
evolving stories, enriched with time,
location and device metadata
• Annotate captured videos with free
text and pre-selected domain-
specific labels
• Provide trustworthy and metadata-
enriched videos to news agencies
and media organizations
