Convera Announces Screening Room 3.0

Jun 15, 2004

Convera Corporation, a provider of search and categorization software for enterprises and government agencies, has announced the launch of Screening Room 3.0, video search technology with new enterprise security features. Used within government and commercial enterprises for searching video libraries, Screening Room 3.0 is an optional component to Convera's RetrievalWare enterprise search platform, which also searches text and audio data. Used in conjunction with RetrievalWare, Screening Room is designed to deliver real-time capture, encoding, analysis, and cataloguing of video, in addition to closed caption text, text generated by speech-to-text converters, and other metadata over corporate intranets/extranets. Screening Room allows searching of multimedia repositories and is intended to eliminate the need for analysts, archivists, and general users to watch or play an entire video when only a small clip is needed. Recent government organizations that have purchased the Screening Room option of RetrievalWare include the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
