Kanata, ON – December 19 – HubStor, a leading innovator in cloud backup and archiving, today announced the general availability of audio and video transcription features in its intelligent cloud service for secondary storage. Using the new features, customers of the HubStor cloud archive platform can now search and classify the dialogue of audio and video files for eDiscovery, security, and compliance.
The HubStor search engine lets users scope the new media indexing options using policies so that customers can target particular content in their secondary cloud storage that they wish to transcribe. Azure Media Services is the underlying speech-to-text engine that supplies the highly accurate transcriptions which HubStor archives with the source audio and video files.
“We have customers that store plenty of audio and video files that are critical to their business,” said Greg Campbell, CTO, HubStor. “Call center recordings or videos of job sites and meetings are commonplace, and HubStor’s new transcription and search features make it easy for our customers to include this content in the scope of their eDiscovery and data classification efforts.”
HubStor recently announced integration with Azure Archive Storage to enable clients to apply analytics-driven storage tiering policies that intelligently manage information between the Hot, Cool, and Archive tiers in the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Customers can now transcribe their audio and video files before tiering the data to the low-cost Archive tier, providing an efficient discovery and long-term retention solution of cold data that is rarely accessed.
