The daily news shows are the TV broadcaster´s first reference to their viewers. But unfortunately, the delivery of just-in-time, high quality news shows has become more challenging over the last years by the needs 1) to serve the cross-department workflow integrating the growing number of input channels, 2) for a more complex composition of news contents to serve additional distribution channels and 3) to further exploit the available vast archives and raw materials.
Regarding these challenges the MediaMixer project offers to shift the workflow more towards the Media Fragment level and employ the MediaMixer toolset. This allows to improve the news production through 1) the cross-department retrieval for specific persons, places or objects inside the vast video content, 2) the establishment of a repository with re-usable video snippets improving the collaboration and shorten production time and 3) the more flexible composition of contents to serve different distribution channels such as Internet, TV, HbbTV or mobile TV. In addition, the semi-automatic Media Fragment identification and annotation of the MediaMixer toolset enables to better exploit the vast amount of footage and raw materials.
