News : AppTek Announces Media Syncing Platform Amid Advances in ASR Technology
McLean VA, USA, Aug, 2017 -- AppTek officially announces the launch of its Auto-Sync platform. Auto-Sync leverages AppTek’s proprietary neural-network based automatic speech recognition technology to create time-stamped transcription of audio files. This data is then used to perfectly align existing transcripts to the original media asset.
"Auto-Sync is an extremely valuable platform for media producers, creators and owners globally," announced Adam Sutherland, AppTek CEO. "The act of marrying the existing script or transcript to the actual media asset allows for more accurate closed captioning, subtitling, discoverability, and facilitates re-use through more accurate archive searching."

"The new models are faster, more accurate and easier to train. They represent a true step-change in machine learning and ASR."
"AppTek’s scientific team is laser-focused on language technologies built on machine learning and artificial intelligence. It’s all we do," added Sutherland. "That means we are able to compete with, and in many cases out-perform, much larger companies and teams. Our technology continues to increase the value of recorded media for our partners in Media, Telephony, Mobility and Government."
