Executive Summary

The project developed a fully automated end to end TV and radio broadcast monitoring system capable of detecting content of interest in live audio and video streams. The detection and matching results were used by the system to generate critical analytics and statistics. The system was designed to work on ‘Software as a Service’ (SAAS) model where end-clients exploited functionalities of the system over the web. The system also addressessed challenges of a robust audio-video content matching and the bottleneck of huge computing resource requirement for processing audio-video streams by making innovative use of state-of-the-art many-core processors. The R&D done and the solution developed as a result of this project was extensible to address the problem of other domains which required automated video processing.
