Tel-Aviv, Israel ? December 4, 2012 ? Actus Digital, a developer of web-based media monitoring, content repurposing and verification solutions for broadcasters and media-driven organizations, is pleased to announce it has signed a landmark deal with the Interdisciplinary Center Academic Institute. The prestigious university will use Actus monitoring solutions including theActus View and Actus Clip modules to research and analyze television broadcasts. Professors and researchers will have access to high-quality media and associated metadata from standard desktop systems connected to the Actus View platform. Integrated production tools will let users easily search, clip, share, and archive materials.
"With the extensive multi-platform distribution models employed by today?s broadcasters, scholars and researchers in our School of Communications need tools like Actus to effectively accomplish their work,? said Dalit Leder, video systems manager at the Interdisciplinary Center. ?Actus provides extensive analysis capabilities, enabling our School of Communications to continue to innovate the way we research communication trends and shifts in journalism."
With the growing number of television channels, researchers count on tools like Actus View to reliably record and analyze channels from all over the world. The flexibility of the Actus system lets users record the entire channel programming content, with tools to zero in and review specific time blocks, regardless if it is two weeks or two hours. Researchers can focus efforts specifically on analyzing media trends as opposed to spending hours and hours viewing and organizing content before even getting to the analysis process.
?The installation of Actus at the Interdisciplinary Center is a company milestone,? said Sima Levy, CEO, Actus Digital. ?This is the first educational entity to implement Actus for research, utilizing many of the platform?s core capabilities such as metadata-driven searches, video clipping, and media archiving.
