The task of manually screening every video was not only labor-intensive but also prone to human error. Hence, we sought a robust solution to streamline this process using GenAI and maintain their reputation as a family-friendly platform.

Top 3 challenges for the OTT company

The OTT company faced several challenges in ensuring content compliance:

  1. Labor-Intensive Screening Process: The OTT company faced a significant challenge with its content screening process. Watching every movie and show manually to spot offensive material was not just time-consuming but also demanded a lot of resources. As their content library grew, it became harder to keep up with the manual screening, causing operational issues.

  2. Human Error: Relying solely on human judgment for content screening posed another challenge. Despite the team’s efforts, there were occasional oversights, leading to about 15% of cases slipping through the cracks. Factors like fatigue and subjective interpretation increased the chances of errors, risking the inclusion of offensive material on the platform.

  3. Compliance Risk: The OTT company faced a considerable compliance risk by failing to detect offensive content within its library, making up around 8% of the content. In today’s regulatory environment, overlooking offensive material could result in viewer complaints, fines, and legal troubles. This risked tarnishing the company’s reputation as a family-friendly platform, potentially driving away viewers and damaging brand integrity. Thus, ensuring robust content compliance measures became imperative for mitigating these risks and safeguarding the platform’s reputation and longevity.

Our Solution using GenAI

In order to overcome the challenges mentioned in the previous section, we’ve utilized GenAI technology to ensure that our videos are free from offensive material, such as profanity, derogatory remarks, or nudity. We’ve adopted the following strategies:

To address these challenges, we implemented a comprehensive solution leveraging GenAI’s capabilities:

  1. We acquire the videos from cloud platforms.
  2. Generated the subtitles using the transcription service.
  3. Generated the Frames per second using OpenCV.
    OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision) is an open-source library of programming functions mainly aimed at real-time computer vision. It provides tools and algorithms for tasks such as image and video processing, object detection and tracking, machine learning, and more. Feel free to explore it by clicking  here
  4. Vectorization of frames using LLM models.
  5. Indexing and storing the vector data in a vector database.
  6. RAG implementation for Instruction processing, context retrieval, and result generation.
  7. Generated the result sheet containing the timestamp and offensive material, such as profanity, derogatory remarks, or nudity.
