  • Patent number: 8438131
    Abstract: A media archive comprising a plurality of media resources associated with events that occurred during a time interval are processed to synchronize the media resources. Sequences of patterns are identified in each media resource of the media archive. Elements of the sequences associated with different media resources are correlated such that a set of correlated elements is associated with the same event that occurred in the given time interval. The synchronization information of the processed media resources is represented in a flexible and extensible data format. The synchronization information is used for optimized synchronous search capability, for enhanced synchronous playback of the archive resources, and for unified access to, and modification of, the archive resources.

  • Publication number: 20110125560
    Abstract: Systems and methods allow collaboration based on media archive based systems. Collaboration events are processed within media archive based systems. End user collaborations are improved and the overall content of the original media archive is enhanced. The collaborative content is modified via the addition of user notes and targeted user notes and further collaborations are encouraged via the disclosed event notification system coupled with the user federations and collaboration network of federated users. User notes can comprise one or more media resources, media archive, or other form of computer readable data. Media resources of user notes are synchronized with the media resources of the media archive. The increase of collaborative content improves the overall body of knowledge on a subject and therefore provides improved knowledge transfer solutions.

User notes can comprise one or more media resources, media archive, or other form of computer readable data. Media resources of user notes are synchronized with the media resources of the media archive. Users can request playback of portions of the media archive. The requested portions of the media archive are presented to the requestor along with user notes associated with positions within the requested portion. Portions of the media archive can be redacted and withheld from presentation to a set of users.

Collaboration networks of users are formed to propagate information describing interactions with media archives to users with potential interests in the information. The increase of collaborative content improves the overall body of knowledge on a subject and is therefore provides improved knowledge transfer solutions.

The synchronization information of the processed media resources is represented in a flexible and extensible data format. The synchronization information is used for correction of errors occurring in the media resources of a media archive, for enhancing processes identifying information in media resources, for example by transcription of audio resources or by optical character recognition of images.
