2:05 – 2:45 p.m.: Day 4 Keynote: How MLB Network Automated Closed Captioning and Offensive Language ID Within DIAMOND
The closed captioning of content is a major component in today’s delivery requirements for both linear networks and digital outlets. MLB Network developed multiple workflows to take advantage of Closed Captioning Cloud engines, and on-prem offerings, tying the workflows tightly into the MLB Network’s DIAMOND internal asset-management platform. Customized requirements were incorporated into the environment, including automated offensive language identification, text editing, and distribution, and the support of many closed captioning file formats all delivered simultaneously. See a live demonstration of the complete DIAMOND workflow – with all the bells and whistles.

2:45 – 3:30 p.m.: Tech Focus: AI and Machine Learning
Automating metadata capture, facial / visual recognition, and speech-to-text for closed captioning all contribute to automating the content-creation ecosystem. As AI and machine-learning engines become more prevalent, sports-content creators are exploring new ways to capitalize on these advances to automate highlights creation and media management workflows. However, the technologies are not inexpensive and many are not yet perfected. AI experts take the stage to discuss how these tools can play a role in your content ecosystem, the workflow advantages they provide, and the obstacles you may face.
