Stream, Microsoft’s 2017 video platform for enterprises, has become more and more functional and integrates several Microsoft services after several rounds of version changes. At the Ignite conference, which opened today, Microsoft again announced the introduction of a heavyweight feature for the service — AI-driven voice enhancements.
The new feature allows Stream’s enterprise video platform to detect voice in video and try to eliminate background noise in the video. In addition, audio transcripts are extended to more languages. This means you can not only add captions to your video, but you can also search for words in your video to find what you’re looking for. This feature also provides support for Chinese (simplified), French, German, Italian, Japanese and Portuguese (Brazil).
Mobile Stream can now add comments, text, emojis, etc., and add the ability to record and edit videos anytime, anywhere. Video sits not on the device, but in your organization’s cloud services.
Microsoft has further integrated its services, and Stream can now work with PowerApps, so you can create your own apps using the built-in Stream video. Microsoft recently announced the ability to migrate from Office 365 video to Stream, and you can learn more here.
