AnyClip Lands Funding to Create Streaming Video Experience Luminous Watch

AnyClip announced it has received funding from the Google News Initiative’s Innovation Challenge to create Luminous Watch, a streaming video page experience for media companies that mimics the functionality and design of popular video-on-demand services, while accessing advanced video management tools supported by a patented AI backbone. 

Through a back-end platform, Luminous Watch ingests owned and licensed video and accesses AnyClip’s patented AI technology to analyze each video’s image and audio contents frame-by-frame.  Detailed keywords, people, brands, phrases images and actions are detected within each moment, and the information is tagged to the content in the form of data, which is then used to structure content libraries and power advanced content search features used by editorial teams curating channels or playlists.

On the front-end of the platform, content data is then used to organize videos into a customizable hub of browsable channels and playlists.  As viewers engage with this content, the platform automatically understands their interests and uses content data to organize playlists and channels of related videos to watch.   All Luminous Watch streaming activity can be fully ad-supported, providing publishers with a valuable and sustainable new revenue opportunity.

“As behemoth conglomerates gain traction with audiences and advertisers alike, it is increasingly difficult for any publisher to thrive in today’s media landscape without new business models and new technologies,” says Gil Becker, AnyClip’s President and CEO.  “Luminous Watch was invented with this need in mind: a way to radically change the way content is delivered to users, providing publishers with the same tools and smart engines used by today’s most evolved streaming services. We are grateful to Google for their funding of AnyClip’s Luminous Watch project and we are honored to support journalism in the digital age through our alignment with the Google News Initiative.”
