SAIL LABS Presents New Languages at FITEM 2006

SAIL LABS Technology, the recognized leader in innovative speech and multimedia analysis software, attended the FITEM 2006, held in Barcelona on September 27 and 28, 2006.

FITEM 2006 was the 41st congress & exhibition for professional media monitoring companies and their suppliers. The annual event is organized by FIBEP (Federation Internationale des Bureaux d’Extraits de Presse), the international organization of media monitors. The exposition focuses on clipping services and service providers that are active internationally.

Following last year’s successful introduction of SAIL LABS’ award-winning Media Mining System 4.0, a broadcast news transcription suite offering real-time information extraction from multilingual audio and video sources, FIBEP has invited the company to demonstrate the advanced release 4.2 and newly added language support. Almost 90 members from over 40 countries, who attended this year’s event, had the opportunity to view live demonstrations for all currently available languages*), and were evidently impressed by the system’s unique capabilities.

“It was a pleasure for SAIL LABS to have the opportunity to show how fully automatic rich media indexing and media mining works for the media observation industry,” says A. Schmidthuber, Director of Business Development EMEA at SAIL LABS. “We are confident that we will further expand the number of FIBEP members deploying the Media Mining System.”
