Explore VIDIZMO's Indexer in Video Content Management System

A video indexing software helps you quickly find videos by extracting information contained within them. Read more on how VIDIZMO's platform can help.

If you have thousands of videos stored, then finding the right information is just going to take much time. A report from EY shows that in every 5 minutes a worker spends, 1 minute is wasted in time spent searching for information. As a result, a significant amount of time and resources are wasted in the process. 

Organizations that use video content management systems also face similar challenges. They have tons of videos related to various departments and use cases.  

If you need to find vital information in a library of 100s of recorded meetings, it is almost impossible and counter-productive for you to open and go through every meeting. 

Here is where you will need video indexing software with AI capabilities to extract information and help you find information much quicker. 

If it is a text document, then any simple file explorer can help you easily find what you need. But video data is different! You can only search videos based on titles and not on what is spoken inside them unless you use video indexing software.

What is Video Indexing in a Video Content Management System? 

Video indexing is the process of extracting information from videos to help users find and access videos more easily. 

It originates from the term indexing, which generally means making information more presentable and accessible. 

In technology, video indexing involves extracting information from a video and storing it in a database. This information is called video metadata. 

The information can be a transcript of what was said in the video or the names of the people appearing within it. This helps a search engine quickly find a video as it can go beyond the basic title search and look for information contained within the metadata.

Why Need Video Indexing Software? 

Video indexing is done through software rather than manually. This is mainly because manual indexing can be a costly and time-consuming process. 

Consider doing transcription of a video, for an average person, it will take 4 hours to transcribe a 1-hour long video. Manually indexing spoken words in a library of 1000-hour-long videos is just not the best idea. So, what is the alternative then? A video indexing software. 

Video indexing software is equipped with AI capabilities to speed up the process for you. We will discuss these shortly. The bottom line, it helps you quickly index videos and save time.
