Why might I use Annotations?

As a sports federation

As mentioned above, a sports federation may use this to highlight periods of play and break, i.e. First Half, Second Half and so on. This will vary depending on the sport, but athletes, scores, and even Interviews can be transcribed into annotations. 

As a sports team

You may use annotations to review good play or discuss where play could be improved - bad passes etc.

As a corporation

You may use annotations to transcribe company announcements,  or maybe team updates or training materials

As a production company

You could use annotations to mark actors, scenes or edits.

đź’ˇPro tip: Annotations can be added manually, or you could use our AI workflows to automatically detect celebrity faces, logos, objects, or just transcribe speech all from within your Imagen platform. If AI workflows are of interest, please get in touch with your Imagen contact or talk to support@imagen.io
