VICE Media generates 200+ hours of programming annually, much of which contains potentially sensitive material. This creates a large-scale challenge for their Standards & Practices Team, who must scan through every video and mark down every potential infraction for multiple levels of sensitivity, and then load everything into a spreadsheet to facilitate international versioning and localization. Compounding the challenge is the potential for same-day airtimes, which significantly impacts the editorial team’s workflow.
The VICE S&P team was looking for a way to save time, as this created an extremely labor-intensive manual process. In this session, we’ll explore how Frame.io helped VICE streamline their workflow by using Frame.io’s API, AWS Transcribe, and a custom software layer in the middle to both automate and improve the S&P process. In minutes, this process not only generates the spreadsheet for internationalization, but adds frame-accurate comments to Frame.io, indicating specific moments from the audio transcript. Now, instead of watching every minute of content, the S&P team can simply click on the comment to get to the precise frame where a particular word occurs.
Learn how VICE saves more than 100 eight-hour days each year by leveraging new technologies, such as AI with Frame.io, to accelerate and modernize their creation and delivery process.
