artec technologies AG: International media corporation chooses artec cloud platform for TV analysis

artec technologies AG: International media corporation chooses artec cloud platform for TV analysis + First major new customer after the launch of the cloud initiative in February + Real-time analysis for the customer's European TV stations + Analysis of real-time information from multiple sources has only just begun Diepholz/Bremen - 11 April 2017: An international media corporation has chosen the cloud platform of artec technologies AG (WKN 520958), a specialist for the storage and evaluation of real-time information from diverse sources from TV to the Internet, for the documentation and analysis of its European TV stations. The cooperation has been agreed for at least several years. It is the first major customer signed up after the launch of artec's cloud initiative in February 2017. artec is thus expanding its business model and becoming a supplier of cloud-based solutions for the TV, media and advertising industries besides handling the traditional project business.

"We are very pleased that we needed only such a short time to convince the first major new customers of the benefits of our patented XENTAURIX technology platform as a cloud service, as it shows that expanding our business model has been the right decision," says artec CEO Thomas Hoffmann. "And this is only just the beginning. More and more enterprises are beginning to see the opportunities that arise for their business from analysing real-time information from multiple sources - from TV and radio to social media. artec has decades of experience in this field and is able to offer the most diverse, customised analysis tools on this basis."

SaaS cloud platform for the analysis of TV stations and social media Operated under the SaaS (Software as a Service) scheme, artec's cloud platform comprises European TV and radio stations and facilitates the integration of analytical feedbacks from social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. The artec services combine technologies which not only enable the automated recognition of images, logos, texts, objects, faces and voices in video sequences to make it easier for rights holders, media institutions and advertising agencies to monitor the rights of use of their own contents. The advertising industry also stands to benefit from these services. Tools for the more detailed analysis of audience ratings, for instance, provide more detailed insights which help programme planners and editors to make the necessary adjustments to optimise their own ratings.

artec expects the predictable and high-margin cloud revenues to make an important contribution to revenues in the Broadcast Division in the medium term.
