Organizations continue to spend an increasing amount of financial, technological, and human resources on production of videos and multimedia. But what is the shelf life on these videos? This interesting topic came from AV Network in their article, “Smarter Searching & Managing Metadata to Optimize ROI.”

Put those video libraries to good use. Presentations can be revitalized with multimedia, whether it is for training, marketing, sales, or internal communications. The biggest challenge is making the resources findable.

To enhance the traditional keyword search, some video management platform developers are offering features that enable users to search based on speech—what is actually being said in the video—to narrow their search time.

Whatever you are searching for, it is important to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy. It isn’t a cookie cutter process. Choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
