C-SPAN is a public service that provides gavel-to-gavel proceedings of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, and to other forums where public policy is discussed, debated and decided––all without editing. With 3 network stations and 5 other video feeds, there is a lot of content that must be indexed and made searchable.
"By using Amazon Rekognition, we are able to tag who is speaking / on camera at what time down to the second, if needed. Rekognition allow us to index twice as much content as we do currently - from 3500 hours a year to 7500 hours a year which would allow us to index 100% of our first run content and it was shockingly easy to set up, even with 97,000 entities from our database.”
