Developed "Vertical Video Conversion System" that automatically creates vertical videos from horizontal videos.
TV Asahi has been distributing vertical video news content on TikTok since 2020, YouTube Shorts since 2021, and LINE VOOM since 2023.
Vertical video production used to be done using general editing software, which required production staff to reduce the size of the broadcast horizontal video and edit the ticker information directly, which took a lot of time and cost.
To solve this issue, TV Asahi, with technical assistance from TDAI Lab, has developed a "vertical video conversion system" that automatically creates vertical videos from horizontal videos, and has actually started its operation on SNS. The system incorporates TDAI Lab's AI and image recognition solutions, enabling automatic conversion to vertical design and automatic generation of tickers by recognizing text in the video.
