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 Indexer 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 three bundles of features at different price points. The standard Audio Analyser pre-set 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. Finally we have the Advanced pre-set which provides all AI-based analysis models Video Indexer has to offer.

Video analysis is available in two bundles of features at different price points. The Standard Video Analyser pre-set offers a rich set of AI-based video analysis models while the Advanced Video Analyser pre-set offers all AI-based analysis models Video Indexer has to offer. It also samples the video more frequently for better quality and includes advanced insights like clapperboard, digital patterns and much more.
