CODAM – COntent-based Digital Asset Management

An Innovate UK funded project, CODAM delivers an advanced video asset management system with unique video search capabilities, aiding content creation and deployment by enabling visual content tracking, identification and searching across multiple devices and platforms, and across diverse media ecosystems.

Where is the original version of the low-quality clip? Which video clip has been used most often in recent broadcasts? Is there other footage in the archive that shows the same event but can provide a fresh viewpoint? Maybe even some relevant user generated content? CODAM answers these questions based on novel video search techniques which allow identification of near-duplicate videos as well as different videos depicting the same scenes or objects in very large archives.

CODAM is a collaborative R&D project led by Visual Atoms and also involving the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and the University of Surrey.
