Video Indexer

Video Indexer allows you to extract, review, curate, customise, search and publish insights in a single job from your audio and video files using AI, powered by Azure Media Services. See the full list of Video Analyser for Media features

Video Indexer can be used with two types of accounts:

Free trial account: up to 10 hours of free indexing for website users, and up to 40 hours of free indexing for API users.

Paid unlimited account: for larger scale indexing, create a new Video Indexer account connected to a paid Microsoft Azure subscription.

Pricing is based on the duration of the input file. Indexing is charged for audio analysis, video analysis or both.

Audio analysis is available in two bundles of features at different price points. The standard Audio Analyser preset provides a richer set of metadata using a predefined set of AI-based audio analysis models, including speech transcription, speaker indexing, speech sentiment analysis, and keywords and formatted output captions or subtitles. The Basic Audio Analyser pre-set provides a low-cost option to extract only speech transcription, and format output captions and subtitles. The Basic Audio Analyser will produce two separate metres on your note, including a line for transcription and a separate line for caption and subtitle formatting.
