Where do you begin your search if you’re a busy business executive looking for technology to make better use of the content in your broadcast operation? Delving into the details will become necessary, but sometimes you just want to start with the big picture. Here’s a quick overview of the products and services Digital Nirvana offers — plus a handy diagram that shows how each tool will help you at various stages of the content life cycle.
1. MetadataIQ — Metadata-Automation Tool for the Avid Ecosystem
MetadataIQ is a SaaS-based tool that automatically generates speech-to-text and video intelligence metadata, increasing the efficiency of production, preproduction, and live content creation services for Avid PAM/MAM users.
MetadataIQ relies on advanced machine learning and high-performance AI capabilities in the cloud (speech to text, facial recognition, object identification, content classification, etc.) to create highly accurate metadata more quickly and less expensively than traditional methods. Crucially, MetadataIQ is the only tool that automatically generates speech-to-text transcripts on incoming feeds (or on stored content) in real-time, then takes the transcript, parses it by time, and indexes it back to the media in the Avid environment. No other such product integrates with Avid today.
So far, the primary use case has been generating speech-to-text in real time as massive amounts of live streams are being ingested, then sending that STT transcript into the Avid Interplay PAM system with time inputs. This workflow has been proven in two of the world’s major news organizations. MetadataIQ’s unique ability to marry real-time transcript generation with real-time indexing in Avid means producers and editors can quickly find relevant media assets for their news stories, accelerating production.
2. Trance — Self-Service SaaS Transcription and Captioning Tool
Trance is a self-service SaaS application that automatically generates transcripts, closed captions/subtitles, and translations for content localization. It is the same application Digital Nirvana’s team uses to perform captioning and translation services on behalf of its customers, but in a self-service version that integrates into your company’s workflow.
Advanced speech-to-text engines create highly accurate text transcripts of audio and video content. The powerful Trance interface lets users quickly navigate, edit, and export captions in all industry-recognized formats. Built-in AI and custom presets ensure captions conform to style guidelines from various delivery platforms. Trance also provides automated translations in more than 100 languages.

4. MonitorIQ — AI-Driven Compliance Logging and Monitoring Tool
The industry’s most reliable, secure, and easy-to-use broadcast monitoring and compliance logging platform, MonitorIQ allows operators to record, store, monitor, analyze, and repurpose content quickly and efficiently with a minimum of clicks. Natively recording content at any point in the video delivery chain, from production (SDI) to consumption (OTT and STB), MonitorIQ allows you to collect and use knowledge about your broadcast content to meet a wide range of regulatory and compliance requirements. Users can view live or recorded content across hundreds of channels from desktop and mobile devices in any remote location worldwide for instant proof of performance, compliance, or ad placement. MonitorIQ is based on the highly secure and reliable Linux operating system.
Broadcast, network, and MVPD users depend on MonitorIQ to find, review and monitor live or historical content more quickly and easily. The tool puts the recorded video in the hands of multiple departments within the broadcast domain, including C-level executives who had previously sent emails to engineering to search for data. Users can also identify ads on competitive channels, detect logos in high-value content, recognize faces from news or entertainment content, and generate closed captions or clips of clips from live or historical content or advertisements.
You can use these Digital Nirvana tools to make your content work for you. They’re all designed for intelligence, speed, and efficiency so your team can perform their daily tasks faster and easier. Producers and editors can pinpoint the right clips and create content even quicker, especially for news, sports, and other time-sensitive applications. And you’ll never miss a placement or compliance issue.
