While AINAR V4 was a significant advancement in cognitive AI technology, V5 takes it a step further. V5 boasts over 700 mood tags and 2300 keywords, a substantial leap from V4’s 70 mood tags and 1500 keywords.

Time-coded Descriptors and Mood-tags

We all know that in content discovery precision is key, thats why we developed time-coded descriptors and mood-tags. This feature empowers editorial teams to dive deep into each scene’s nuances. Whether curating content that showcases exhilarating car chases, heartfelt romantic moments, or adrenaline-packed sequences, AINARV5 streamlines the process. With just a simple query, editorial teams can swiftly identify and select scenes that resonate with their target audience. This granular approach ensures that content curation is not only efficient but also tailored to the diverse tastes of viewers. For editorial teams, it’s a game-changer, offering a refined toolset to craft compelling content narratives.

AINAR Contextual Advertising- Revolutioning Advertising With Scene Level Precision

AINAR V5 introduces contextual scene data that aligns with the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) standards. This ensures that ads are not only contextually relevant but also adhere to IAB’s categories, optimizing ad campaigns for maximum ROI. The battle for viewer attention has never been fiercer and the age-old challenge remains: how to seamlessly integrate advertisements without disrupting the viewer’s experience.We have created AINAR Contextual Advertising, the solution that’s set to redefine the advertising landscape. But it’s not just about placing ads; it’s about placing them right. With scene-level precision, AINAR ensures that commercials aren’t awkwardly wedged into gripping scenes or pivotal dialogues. Instead, ads are seamlessly woven at natural junctures in the narrative, ensuring a harmonious viewing experience. AINAR Contextual Advertising isn’t just another ad tool; it’s a paradigm shift. By intertwining deep learning with the art of storytelling, it promises advertisers unparalleled precision and viewers an unbroken narrative experience.

Scene Boundary Detector with Ranking Functionality

AINAR V5’s scene boundary detector is a game-changer for ad-insertion. By ranking the most appropriate moments for ad breaks, it ensures seamless integration of ads into the content, enhancing user experience and ad effectiveness.

The Ranking Structure Explained:
AINAR V5 employs four parallel networks to predict and rank ad breaks:

  • Network 1: Black frame detector
  • Network 2: Deep learning network analyzing the story’s flow
  • Network 3: Scene boundary detector
  • Network 4: Shot-similarity algorithm

These networks collaborate to create a ranking system:

  • Rank 1: Requires full consensus from all networks, indicating the highest quality ad.
  • Rank 2: Requires agreement from at least three networks.
  • Rank 3: Requires agreement from at least two networks.
  • Rank 4 (Gap Filler): Relies solely on the shot similarity network, filling gaps when higher-ranked ad breaks are scarce.

Furthermore, post-processing filters for speech ensure that ads don’t interrupt crucial discussions or narrations, preserving the integrity of the content.
