SAN CARLOS, Calif.-- TiVo Corporation (NASDAQ: TIVO), a global leader in entertainment technology and audience insights, today introduced Studio, Broadcast and Network Metadata Packages. TiVo’s enhanced metadata, incorporating themes, keywords, images and related programs, will allow studios, broadcasters and networks to increase the visibility of their catalogs.

“Studios, broadcasters and networks make large investments to bring the most compelling content to their viewers, but they frequently have large untapped back catalogs that are not being maximized against an increasing number of fragmented distribution opportunities,” said Roz Ho, senior vice president and general manager of metadata, TiVo. “By analyzing these catalogs, TiVo can build stronger connections and deliver enhanced metadata that will better optimize the content for greater discoverability.”

Across the industry, search and discovery systems are evolving from one-size-fits-all to intuitive, recommendation-based offerings. Viewers are starting to expect highly personalized, voice-enabled conversational interfaces with sophisticated learning engines and robust user profiles that can anticipate intent and connect audiences with the right content using natural language. These intuitive search and discovery experiences require deeper, real-time and regionalized metadata.

TiVo’s Studio, Broadcast and Network Metadata Packages are the perfect solutions for studios, broadcasters and networks, creating smarter, stronger connections between entertainment, prioritizing content by popularity and optimizing keyword relevancy.

  • Knowledge Graph Engine: TiVo is the only metadata provider that can generate dynamic, regionalized metadata using TiVo’s Knowledge Graph Engine. It provides discovery systems with a deeper understanding of entertainment content, how it relates to each other and most importantly, the strength of those connections. It enables more contextually-relevant discovery experiences by assessing what is happening in a specific part of the world at any moment and relating that to entertainment content to anticipate what viewers will want next.
  • Enhanced Connections: TiVo’s unique machine learning technology also identifies relevant connections between content along with the strength of the relationship, enabling search and recommendation systems to present related content when appropriate. For example, articles on a content producer’s web properties can now be mapped to informative profile pages, creating more opportunities to consume media.
  • Trending Content: TiVo continuously assesses the popularity and relevance of content, enabling discovery systems to anticipate consumers’ interests and more effectively merchandise catalogs by prioritizing and promoting popular content. For example, recommendations need to be aware of popularity in order to find the right balance between giving a certain amount of familiar recommendations to gain trust, while also giving a certain number of novel recommendations that enable discovery. Popularity can also be used to prioritize predictive search results, connecting users with the content they’re looking for as quickly as possible.
  • Keyword Relevancy: An expanded set of descriptive metadata creates new ways to discover content, increasing the visibility of a content producer’s catalogs. For example, keywords that provide a deeper understanding of content enable more relevant recommendations and make content more searchable.

TiVo’s deep, real-time, regionalized metadata can be seamlessly distributed to various platforms, enabling new ways to discover content. The company’s scalable, multi-format delivery support also ensures seamless availability to various distribution platforms and internal standards.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
