Codemill Integrates Accurate Player SDK with Embrace Solutions


Leading the Way Through the Media Maze

There is a solution for every problem, although it may not be clear at first. Within the media and entertainment sector, it isnt until next-gen technology is applied to real-word use cases that the full potential is uncovered. During the initial stages of technological innovation, a period of ongoing development is common, and working collaboratively with customers helps to push boundaries. From validation and QC to editing and segmentation, at Codemill, were always looking for ways to make workflows more efficient. But we cant do that without insights from media companies.

It is difficult to design the right tools and solutions without first knowing what a media organisation needs to operate effectively. Asking questions and spending time listening to the users pain points can be a big eye-opener. Workshops and consultations are invaluable and ensure that development starts with the user in mind. The term user-centric is pretty common in the media industry, and its important to look at everything from their perspective. But our mission is about more than getting the features right its ensuring that day-to-day work life is less stressful for media teams.

Understanding Content Processing Requirements

Lets paint a picture: sure, you can implement an off the shelf solution which (on paper) fulfils your every need with an end-to-end workflow. But its not until you put the solution into practice that you start to realise youve wasted a whole load of time, effort, and money, on something thats fighting against the people who use it. Rather than seamlessly slotting in with the tools content operators need on a daily basis, your new solution is dictating the way things are done. No-one wants to be locked into restrictive workflows, which is why its crucial to bring the applications to the content, not the other way around.

Accurate.Video was specifically designed for the media industry, and to fit in with your content team. It is all about the user. Our suite of products brings advanced content processing features to life, in an elegant, browser-based workflow. Accurate.Video is used by some of the worlds leading studios, broadcasters, VOD services, and publishers. The success of the solution is testament to its functionality, features, and ongoing development. But how did it all start?

The Evolution of Accurate.Video

Accurate.Video was built with collaborative media workflows in mind, and those collaborative values are right to the core of its product development. By understanding users and the content supply chain, weve developed metadata driven tools to help teams out. At Codemill, we recognise that content processing can be time-consuming and complex, regardless of whether thats for logging, curation, validation, QC, or media segmentation. We exist to empower media teams, but its important to recognise that a product suite cannot satisfy every requirement of every workflow in one hit. Its all about an ongoing collaboration, where custom development helps us to iterate and innovate, alongside studios, broadcasters, and VOD providers.

The development of Accurate.Video was influenced by our work with media companies such as Joyn. Founded in 2019, Joyn is a free, multi-channel streaming platform which bundles live streams and on demand content from more than 60 channels, featuring series, sports, and movies, as well as originals and exclusives. Offering a vast library of aggregated content from many different partners, Joyn receives a plethora of media files which require Quality Control (QC) checks before being sent for distribution. Identifying common issues with metadata, such as incorrect, inconsistent, or missing information, was becoming increasingly time consuming.

Joyns resources could be used more efficiently, if media operators didnt need to manually identify the exact location of errors before taking action. Thats where we came in. The project with Joyn provided the perfect launch pad for Accurate.Video. Since its initial release, Accurate.Video has appeared in various iterations, but has always stayed true to its roots of ensuring that the user experience is enjoyable and efficient. Making the workflow magic happen with metadata!

Although Accurate.Video has been productised over the years, innovative custom development work still underpins what we do at Codemill. The platforms features have been developed in response to an evolving media industry, and it is continually being enhanced to address the issues faced by media teams. Accurate.Video was designed to enable media organisations to intuitively respond to the demands of high-volume content operations.
