Their combined technologies will provide sports and live event broadcasters with efficient speech-to-text tools that will aid production teams.

It will mean customers using Tedial’s live sport solutions, SMARTLIVE, will be able to search for comments made during a sporting match or live event - helping them to locate a goal during a football match, for example - create file locators and import a file or drop it into a watch folder. They can manually generate speech-to-text from the commentary track.

The aim is to give production teams quicker access to content, meaning they can spend less time searching for footage and more time generating creative content like personalised stories that are more valuable for viewers.

Speechmatics uses machine learning technology to convert speech to text, with applications in broadcasting, compliance and call centres.

“Given the incredibly competitive nature of the marketplace in which they operate, both Tedial and its customers require the most accurate and efficient solutions, and we see this partnership as further testament to the quality of our product.”

“The beauty of technology like this is that this initial integration, enables us to continue to benefit from further improvements in years to come.
