About the System

The Multimedia Monitoring System (M3S) allows users to search global media outlets across media types including:

 

Broadcast Media

Languages: Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), and Russian

Satellite broadcast media content is ingested, transcribed into its native script and then translated into English. The ingested content is of authentic origin with their transcriptions and translations unfiltered. The transcript and translation are searchable by keywords and synchronized to the video which provides powerful capabilities for effective retrieval and precise playback of the video and its speech content.

Users search by keyword, time frame, and source language. For more advanced search options, users may limit results by a specific media source, sentiment (e.g. positive or negative), region, and a subtopic of their choice.

In selecting an item of interest, the user is able to view the authentic video stream that synchronizes the native script and the English translation with a moving cursor.  It is here that users can clip video segments, save the clipped segments and the translated text for replay.

By exporting content, users can use their saved media content in other materials such as, presentations, lessons, and lectures.

Web Page News Media

Languages: Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Farsi, and Russian

The M3S searches 70+ preconfigured websites and refreshes daily with new translated content. Users search by keyword, time frame, and source language searching. For more advanced search options, users may limit results by a specific media source, sentiment (e.g. positive or negative), regions, and a subtopic of their choice. Web page media content may be bookmarked and exported for user convenience, complete with side-by-side translation and original text in source language.

Social Media

Languages: Arabic and Russian

M3S users may search Twitter in Arabic and VKontakte in Russian.

Social media may be searched by keyword, time frame, source language, and social media user ID. Twitter content may be additionally searched by hashtags, while VKontakte posts and comments may be searched separately. In selecting an item of interest, the user is able to view authentic content in its native script and the English translation.

An additional feature available for Twitter content are custom social network maps, specific to designated search parameters.

Analysis & Archival

All M3S content can be analyzed by trends, topics, and geography then saved and exported to external applications. All media content is stored for one full year from the date the original content was ingested into M3S.
