Mediate: A Collaborative Annotation Tool for Data Driven Audiovisual Research

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Mediate is a web-based platform that allows users to upload audiovisual media; produce real-time notes; collaboratively generate automated and manual annotations on the basis of customized schema; preserve the annotations as data that can be queried; and export the data in CSV and JSON formats. Unlike many current platforms for analyzing audiovisual content, Mediate includes a user-friendly annotation interface that mimics non-linear editing programs, ease of use for content management, and controlled access for media and data.  Platform demonstration and use cases will address: 1. Generating crowd-sourced temporal metadata that can be easily exported. 2. Labeling moving image training sets for machine learning projects. 3. Previewing files and sharing notes on collaborative restoration projects. 4. Enabling controlled access to collection materials for research, scholarly presentations, and instructional aids for film education. 5. Promoting cross-institutional research on collections through the use of controlled vocabularies to produce shared data.
