Utilizing the latest machine learning technologies to create insightful metadata of identified guests as they arrive at the event, the GrayMeta Platform will use Amazon Rekognition video and image analysis services for real-time identification of Royal Wedding guests and tag them with related biographical information. “The Who’s Who app will provide viewers with an unprecedented experience which will enable them to participate as the event unfolds,” says John Motz, Chief Technology Officer at GrayMeta. “By harnessing the power of automated metadata creation, this experience exemplifies the future of how content will be viewed across platforms and technologies.”
As guests make their way into St. George’s Chapel, AWS will capture live video and send it to cloud-based AWS Elemental Media Services for multiscreen viewing optimization. Sky News will use the Amazon CloudFront content delivery network to unify the content for rapid distribution to viewers. And UI Centric will utilized metadata created by GrayMeta display an enhanced viewing experience to viewers.
Arrivals for the Royal Wedding are planned to begin at 9:30 a.m. GMT and continue until the ceremony begins at 12:00 p.m. GMT. The Royal Wedding: Who’s Who functionality is accessible at Sky News online or via the Sky News app for mobile devices.
