Lower Thirds Recognition Project at VRT Archives

by Marijn Daniels

VRT

Lower Thirds Recognition Project at VRT Archives

In many types of content, lower-third graphics contain valuable information. Up until 2022, archivists at VRT used lower thirds character graphics as a visual source of data for manual annotation. This meant scrubbing through footage, looking for occurrences of lower-third graphics, and entering the metadata manually into the system. In this presentation, Marijn Daniels will explain how VRT used A.I. to automate the process of speaker labelling, using lower-third character recognition.
