DMW: “Linius Virtualizes Video for Monetization and Personalized Viewing”

According to Digital Media World (DMW), Linius’ video virtualization and video hyper-personalization technology delivers “convenient” and “automated” methods to customize and monetize video in ways that speech to text, facial recognition and artificial-intelligence-driven video search can’t.

Following an interview with Linius CEO Chris Richardson, DMW’s ( editor, Adriene Hurst, said that the patented technology “can lead to new services and subscription, analysis, targeting and revenue models”, and that “the small size of Linius’ virtualised video reduces the need to move full-resolution video files around the network.”

Article highlights

Turning video into data

The Linius Engine works on ordinary video files, breaking them down into controllable blocks of data, which it then searches through, tags and categorizes. Once all of the data is indexed, a virtual file is created, which typically occupies less than one per cent of the original file size depending on the specifications.

Users also have a chance to enrich the data [too].


Automated search and assembly

The virtualization work Linius does up to this point makes it possible to search the video content for any object – across multiple sources, down to [a] single frame level – and immediately reassemble it at the point of playback as a highly customised video..., viewable on web-enabled devices or platforms.

Virtualization and re-assembly does not affect video quality, and varying aspect ratios between sources are handled on-the-fly to produce a smooth, watchable result.


Programmatic delivery

Service providers can automatically integrate the search results into existing video workflows, or use it as a pool of resource material that will be delivered on-demand in an infinite variety of streams to individuals, based on consumption preferences or behaviour.
