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.
