MOG to Present Speech Recognition at IBC 2013

Visit MOG at 7.H32 booth and find out how MOG is exceeding media challenges and bringing valuable ingest solutions

At this year’s IBC, MOG will debut an innovative capability in its mxfSPEEDRAIL product line: Speech Recognition. Available for all mxfSPEEDRAIL models, this feature enables the automatic extraction of audio features during the ingest process, performing speech to text conversion and providing a tagging file aligned with the clip timecode. This is a huge boon for media traceability, as it simplifies logging and takes searching to another level by automatically finding the timecode when a certain word is said. By the same token, closed captioning and subtitling are also streamlined, as the subtitling texts are immediately available for revision.

New improvements to mxfSPEEDRAIL Centralized Ingest Solution, such as the new support for JVC and Canon input formats will also be displayed at booth 7.H32. Load Balancing, which was first demonstrated at NAB earlier this year, is now shipping and able to completely distribute the workload across multiple ingest systems, detecting network failures and automatically redistributing the ingest traffic to the remaining platforms. This is too a redundancy mechanism, ensuring that, should one of the ingest system fail, there will be no impact on the overall system. This enhances the system scalability, efficiency and availability on mission-critical environments.

At booth 7.H32 visitors will be able to experience the mxfSPEEDRAIL Xpress, a mix’n’match solution that comprises all the mxfSPEEDRAIL Centralized Ingest Solution capabilities. It works as a fully featured ingest toolset that includes capture, playback, file conversion and transcoding, all in a single and easily configurable platform, only 24 cm deep. Customers are now able to switch services according to their production environment.


A special mention is due to MOG’s integration with Axle, in the form of the new Gearstack: a compact solution that includes one axle Gear media management and transcode appliance, plus one or more MOG mxfSPEEDRAIL Xpress ingest appliances. With a standard web browser, ingests can be monitored as they occur and ingested material is logged through the mxfSPEEDRAIL Xpress user interface. Using the same browser, users can search and browse the material through the axle Gear user interface.
