Cloud Video Intelligence

Precise Video Analysis

Google Cloud Video Intelligence makes videos searchable, and discoverable, by extracting metadata with an easy to use REST API. You can now search every moment of every video file in your catalog. It quickly annotates videos stored in Google Cloud Storage, and helps you identify key entities (nouns) within your video; and when they occur within the video. Separate signal from noise, by retrieving relevant information within the entire video, shot-by-shot, -or per frame.

Gather Insight from 20,000 Labels

Cloud Video Intelligence allows developers to extract actionable insights from video files without requiring any machine learning or computer vision knowledge. From our massive library of 20,000 labels, it automatically analyzes video content to identify what entities are in your video content and when they appear. Cloud Video Intelligence improves over time as new concepts are introduced and accuracy is improved.

Quickly Search Your Video Catalog

You can now search your video catalog the same way you search text documents. Cloud Video Intelligence extracts metadata that can be used to index your video content and make it easy to organize and search your video content. It also returns confidence levels for each entity identified, so you can easily control and filter your content for what’s most relevant.

Separate Signals from Noise

You can identify the presence of a signal buried in noise, by using shot detection to distinguish scene changes within a video and discern only relevant entities at the video, shot or frame level (e.g. Identify “dog” within a new scene).

Process and Store on Google Cloud Platform

You can select the region where processing will take place, choosing from any region where Google Cloud Platform is available. You can also store your videos Google Cloud Storage, which features a consistent API, low-latency, and speed across multiple storage classes.
