Codemill: Swedish developers give modern media a boost

Video rules the internet these days and that puts pressure on modern media to push content out faster than ever before. Offering a helping hand to broadcasters, producers, media experts and others, Codemill has recently released Accurate Player; a browser-based video production platform.

Codemill is a Swedish IT company specialised in digital video technology. Their latest product, Accurate Player, features cutting edge HTML5 to support frame accurate playback on all browsers, multiple sound tracks, full annotation support, sub clipping and an ability to create high-resolution posters from video.

This year Accurate Player has featured at AWS Media Summit in Mumbai, New Delhi and Chennai in India and at IBC in Amsterdam, the leading tradeshow for professionals engaged in the delivery of broadcasting media and entertainment.

In collaboration with strategic partners Codemill has also designed media management and workflow systems that give raw footage an automatic quality control and monitor video performance online, attracting the Guardian and ITV to their list of clients.

They are now developing a video analysis software which uses algorithms to detect what is being said and making dialogue in videos searchable.

To help develop this idea, Codemill had teamed up with the Enterprise Europe Network who are helping them find opportunities outside of Sweden.

The Network previously helped the Swedish SME team up with a German research institute which earned them over EUR 100 000 in EU-funding from Horizon 2020. The money was awarded for developing a new type of shared online repository for intelligent video analysis applications.

‘The media trend is going towards even stronger demand for videos making our role more and more relevant,’

Rickard Lönneborg, CEO.
