Media Monitoring


The Media Monitoring System (MMS) is a powerful program designed to translate and archive multi-national media from across the world. the MMS gives the user a global perspective of current events with an easy-to-use user interface and a comprehensive search function of world wide media in Arabic, Chinese, Urdu and Farsi.


The MMS is comprised of the Broadcast Monitoring System (BMS) and Web Monitoring System (WMS). The BMS creates a continuous searchable archive of international television broadcasts. The system automatically transcribes the real-time audio stream and translates it into English. Both the transcript and translation are searchable and synchronized to the video, providing powerful capabilities for effective retrieval and precise playback of the video based on its speech content. With this system, users can sift through vast collections of news content in other languages quickly and efficiently. The WMS has a comprehensive capability for collecting, organizing, and translating open source content from the World Wide Web.
