Utelly Promotion engine
Utelly Recommendation Engine
To build rich user and multi-user profiles, we identify key indicators throughout the user life cycle, as well as offer the option to ingest existing datasets and combine this with explicit user signals. These profiles are used in conjunction with our enriched metadata, real-time trending topics, and understanding of the wider user-base, to power our world-class recommendation engine.
There is a huge variation when it comes to individual consumption patterns and behaviors. This is exacerbated by the mixing of linear and on-demand content. Many existing solutions fail in the content landscape of today. Our nuanced approach to the challenge allows us to offer a much more effective solution.
By leveraging the connections within the unified metadata repository, better content filtering can be provided, related content can be highlighted and in turn, a better signal is collected to unlock collaborative filtering.
The next level builds upon user activities and their hidden signals for content desirability. Using the latest ML/AI techniques, prediction models are generated and help drive user engagement and ultimately retention.
Utelly Universal Search Engine
The real challenge lies in developing a search engine you won’t need to constantly rewire to match your audience’s changing viewing habits and demands.
What we provide instead is a ready-to-use, comprehensive search engine built with OTT media providers in mind and with a UI to rival Netflix’s, to retain your existing users and attract new ones by supercharging your search functionality. A competitive Pay TV search engine should, consequently, be able to handle millions of customized queries, many of which are mired with partial matches, spelling errors, and unexpected synonyms. Utelly’s search engine handles even the most unpredictable queries with relative ease. Highly specific searches, such as for actors or genres, result in relevant answers every single time. Don’t just take our word for it though - our incredibly flexible search engine is popular with both boutique domestic and multinational OTT providers grossing billions in revenue.

Limelight Edge Compute for Media and Entertainment
In order to control the ingest of media from a variety of devices, companies today often have to either invest in a MAM system or resort to using different tools that work with only some of the sources. This is not only expensive, but having several different tools reduces efficiency and jeopardizes quality and reliability.
MediaIngest orchestrates the complete process of ingesting and normalising incoming material to the video, audio and metadata standards of the organisation. The all-in-one application which offers a single, operator-friendly interface to manage and monitor all ingest sources, with or without a MAM integration.
WIREWAX Media Services
With nearly a decade of developing AI and computer vision tools for the world’s number one interactive video platform at WIREWAX, and with another two decades of experience in the video and broadcast space, the team identified ways to leverage the platform’s award-winning image processing technologies in the big media sector too.
Lightning fast; face and object recognition, segmentation, fingerprinting, speech recognition and many other unparalleled tools available in the suite has changed the game for the broadcast and media industry.
Being able to scan entire archives of video assets and create a powerful, digital understanding of videos, programmes and movies with this core technology has enabled large TV and movie studios to leverage data and digital tools and services like never before.
We’ve not met a media business on the planet that doesn’t have a digitised asset problem. Lack of metadata, no understanding of content, zero monetisation capabilities and gigantic and disorganized archives. Not to mention expensive asset management, overpriced syndication and VOD preparation, and notoriously slow and extortionate manual services.
