Linius Technologies’ (ASX: LNU) – the only cloud platform that transforms static video into interactive intelligent content with its world-first Video Virtualization Engine™ (VVE) – is exhibiting at IBC 2018, 14 – 17 September in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

IBC is considered the world’s largest and most influential annual tradeshow for the media, entertainment and technology sector, attracting almost 60,000 attendees and over 1,700 exhibitors from 170 countries. 

Linius CEO Chris Richardson, who will be leading the Linius team at IBC 2018, said the event was an opportunity to demonstrate the company’s unique ability to drive additional revenue and slash operating costs for broadcasters. 

“Running since 1967, IBC provides the perfect platform for Linius to showcase how its revolutionary video virtualization and search technology is poised to transform the multi-billion-dollar broadcasting industry,” said Richardson.  “Only Linius can unlock static video files by exposing, indexing and tagging the video data. Users can then programmatically search across multiple video streams or archives for specific elements, stitching them together on-the-fly, to seamlessly deliver custom video content.   
“By matching frame-level consumption data with artificial intelligence and existing behavioural data, broadcasters can deliver hyper-personalized news experiences that drive subscription revenue, achieve one-to-one audience segmentation for unparalleled consumer engagement, and slash newsroom production costs.” 

Linius recently signed a commercial deal with Stockholm-based video news service provider, Newstag, to roll its VVE technology and Video Search Solution out across its platform and existing workflows, which provide customized newsfeeds to broadcasters.   

Newstag aggregates content for over 20 major broadcasters globally and delivers tailored news video experiences for users in more than 150 countries. 

“Having validated our Video Search Solution for the news industry with the Newstag commercial agreement, Linius and Newstag are now working together to sell the capability to thousands of news broadcasters and news content providers around the world,” said Richardson. “The Newstag relationship aligns with our channel-based go-to-market strategy, designed to accelerate Linius’ growth by partnering with experts in selected industries.”
