Media Distillery develops technology that analyzes audio and video content in real-time. We apply cutting edge deep learning, artificial intelligence and data mining techniques such as speech, logo, text and face recognition to filter all relevant information. The synergistic approach of combining these different technologies provides highly accurate results.



Our technology uncovers the potential of rich analyses of video content.
Media Monitoring

Media Distillery lets you monitor your brand, reputation and presence on radio, television and online video such as Youtube and Vimeo. We analyze 100s of TV and radio channels 24/7 and can also monitor online video platforms continuously based on the content of the videos. We put all analyzed results in our own search engine, that serves the exact time of where your company was found. Media Distillery works with Media Monitoring companies and allows them to integrate our search results in their dashboards.

TV Operators

Media Distillery knows exactly what video content is about. Therefore we can help you enrich your TV-offering by with features that your customers will like. For example enrich your replay TV offering with an or an automatic ad-break filter or advanced search functionality. Moreover, knowing what content is about enables you to provide better content recommendations and send real-time notifications, engaging your customers to your apps.

Broadcasters & Publishers

Online video content is booming; every broadcaster or publisher is currently creating and publishing a huge amount of short videos to better serve their audience. To monetize such videos, Media Distillery can help you with optimizing pre- and mid-rolls ads based on the content of the videos, resulting in a higher CPM. Moreover you can allow your audience to search IN the video content rather than just on the manually added metadata, while you can optimize video recommendations.

Video creators

Whether you are making instruction videos, capturing college lectures or shooting raw video material for broadcasting; Media Distillery can distill these media and help you to get the most out of it. For example automatically find particular faces, logos or spoken quotes in a large video database, or a combination of those. Our scalable platform can easily analyze 1000s of hours of video in real time and let you know exactly what we found.
