Plus, the solutions synergies contribute up to 56% catalog coverage improvements.



The ability to better serve our audiences based on understanding key content characteristics, like mood, will change the way we deliver content to our subscribers. Given Vionlabs’ industry-first technology, we’ve signed up to work with this platform for years to come.

AINAR Reveals Emotions In Media

Storytelling is a dynamic process, far beyond a simple categorization of comedy or drama. With this understanding, we have trained AINAR to understand how humans emotionally perceive both audio and video. 

This is a graph showcasing four films typically labeled as comedies. However, a closer analysis reveals distinct emotional structures. For example, “Sharknado 2” mixes fear and gore with comedy, unlike the pure comedy of “Dumb and Dumber.” These nuances come to light through AINAR’s comprehensive data and insightful visuals where black is fear and yellow is enjoyment. 

AINAR utilizes this insightful data in all our products ranging from preview clips and fingerprints+ to contextual advertising and visual discovery.  AINAR takes storytelling to a whole new level, unraveling the essence of emotions in media files.
