Maximizing Video Compatibility and Annotation with Datature's Nexus Platform

Enhancing Video Data Annotation

With the growing importance of video data in the modern world, it's critical to have a platform that can handle extensive video data processing and annotation. Datature's Nexus Platform offers a streamlined user experience for annotating video data, introducing features that enable users to manage and process videos more efficiently.

Supported Video Formats

Datature’s Nexus platform supports the commonly used MP4 video format. Users can upload videos directly onto the platform and start the annotation process immediately. The platform is designed to make it easy to handle a variety of video data, from short clips to full-length films.

Advanced Video Navigation

The video annotator in the Nexus platform offers a range of navigation options to make the annotation process more efficient. Users can navigate between frames using arrow keys or hotkeys, hover over individual frames to see them in detail, and use the scroll bar at the bottom to access all frames in the video.

The video annotator also supports video playback, allowing users to view the video without any jitter or lag, just like any other video editor or player. This feature provides a seamless transition between selecting individual frames as still images or playing them as a normal video.

Customizable Video Playback and Image Settings

Playback Settings

To facilitate precise video annotation, Datature’s Nexus platform offers customizable video playback settings. Users can adjust the speed of video playback, slow down or speed up the video as needed, providing more control over the video annotation process.

Image Settings

In addition, the platform supports image settings that are typically available in image annotators. Users can adjust the brightness, contrast, and saturation to better fit their use cases. These changes are reflected in the video frames and can be played back normally, ensuring users can make the most of the video data.

Timeline Settings

The timeline settings, part of the video bar at the bottom, allow users to zoom in and out, providing a macro or micro perspective of the video. This feature enables quick selection of individual frames and a broader view of the entire video.

Streamlined Video Annotation Process

The video annotation process on Datature’s Nexus platform is very similar to the image annotation process. Users can use the same image annotation tools, such as rectangle, polygon, paintbrush, free draw, or the AI-assisted tool, Intel brush, to create pixel-perfect masks.

The platform allows the creation of different tags for different objects in the video. For example, in a video with two sharks, users can create two tags: «shark_1» and «shark_2». These tags help in organizing and tracking the annotation process across different frames.

The annotated frames are represented on the video bar by colored line segments, each indicating a different class of annotation. This allows users to easily track which frames have been annotated and what classes are present in those frames without having to navigate to the actual frame.

Seamless Video Upload and Asset Quotas

Datature’s Nexus platform offers flexible video upload options. Users can upload videos from local file storage or sync from other cloud storage providers such as Amazon S3.

The platform uses a unique approach to define asset quotas for videos. It considers the number of frames in the video as the quota deduction, which aligns with the idea that videos are a collection of frames for the machine learning pipeline.

Smooth Video Playback with Annotations

After the annotation process, users can play the video with the annotations on without any latency or lag issues. This allows users to review their work and ensure the accuracy of the annotations.
