LAS VEGAS – As big as online video has become there is still a problem when it comes to search and discovery of video content, due to the lack of metadata.  Transcribing video is time consuming and automated options are often far from accurate.  Nexidia enables search of spoken word content in audio and video files almost instantly.

In this video interview from NAB, Nexidia’s SVP/GM, Media, Drew Lanham discusses the companies Dialogue Search app.  Lanham explains, "We enable search of spoken word content in audio and video files.  We will take an audio/video file and index it at least sixty times faster than real time per core."  Nexidia’s Dialogue Search app can be integrated into third party applications or used as a standalone application.

Nexidia takes a different approach to enabling the search of spoken word.  Lanham explains, "The core technology is fundamentally different.”  Instead of auto-transcribing words, “we index the sounds in the audio—we’re not trying to create a text index.  Once that index is created we can search for any word or phrase in 32 languages."

Nexidia’s Dialogue Search app is already in use by industry leaders like and at NAB the company announced that Crawford will be integrating Nexidia Dialogue Search as well.
