The EU co-funded InVID project (2016-2019) focussed on the algorithm-supported analysis and verification of videos, something its predecessor REVEAL wasn’t able to cover.

After 15 months of development, with around 15 people involved and about 15 organizations testing it and providing feedback, Truly Media is finally entering the commercial market.

The result of all this effort is a commercial verification platform that allows journalists to aggregate and verify User-Generated-Content (UGC) in real-time. A key asset: all this can be done collaboratively.

In the EU funded InVID project we are working hard on solutions to make verification of User Generated Video (UGV) easier and more trustworthy.

InVID (In Video Veritas) aims to assist in and partly automate the verification of videos captured by eyewitnesses, also referred to as user-generated content. A main goal is to make such videos usable for news providers for inclusion in their daily editorial work by developing a platform that provides services and features that detect, authenticate and check the reliability and accuracy of newsworthy video files spread via social networks.
