Computer-based Analysis of Audiovisual Media Products

Audiovisual media products like video clips or music videos are often characterized by many cuts and multiple layers (image/text/audio), which creates an extremely high density of simultaneous events. To adequately reconstruct this complexity, there is a need for a tool that is able to translate audiovisual media products in a transcription that allows to analyze the layers individually, but also shows the coherence between the single layers.

The web application trAVis, a music-centred transcription program for audiovisual media products, does just that.
It was developed within the research project „Image-Text-Sound-Analyses of Music Videos“, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, and is accessible for free.
