In May 2017, we announced the global public preview of the Video Indexer service at the Microsoft Build Developers Conference in Seattle. As part of Microsoft Cognitive Services,Video Indexerwas introduced as a unique integrated bundling of Microsoft's cloud-based artificial intelligence and cognitive capabilities applied specifically for video content. It has since become the industry's most comprehensive Video AI service available, making it easy to extract insights from videos. For the last four months, we have received a tremendous, enthusiastic response from our global customers and partners who began using Video Indexer within their own in-house workflows and video solutions. With the International Broadcasters Conference (IBC) just around the corner, we are excited to share significant feature updates to the Video Indexer service.
Additionally, we are very pleased that several customers and partners have already integrated Video Indexer within their own video solutions and product offerings.
