Video indexing makes it possible to find video material that corresponds to specific criteria such as the title of a production, director, people, action, emotions, etc. A video index contains all information related to productions and clips within productions, including the actual video, start and end time codes, thumbnail images, text descriptions and physical media identifiers.

Underlying the indexing and tools used to build a video index is, of course, the search engine. The video search engine uses the index to pinpoint video content that corresponds to desired criteria.

Lanterna Magica’s Reality suite of products simplifies and accelerates the production of unscripted TV shows, such as reality TV or sports events, by providing live indexing and Web-based pre-editing. While the entire Reality suite is built for real-time indexing during a shoot, each product answers a specific need.

Reality: Live indexing and Web-based pre-editing for unscripted shows.
Reality HDV: The HDV version, providing native HDV storage.
Reality-2-Go: The laptop version for remote shoots.

In addition to the Reality suite, you can also use our off-line indexing solution, Finality. A companion to the Reality suite, Finality lets you reload an index created live and modify or refine it. Finality may also be used for video archiving purposes to enable video assets to be reused, repackaged or redistributed.


Off-line indexing for video repurposing

All our indexing solutions are used in conjunction with our Searchable Video Library. This Library provides access to all video indexes so that users can search, play and pre-edit video material directly from a standard Web browser.
