MONTREAL, Canada and LONDON, October 30 /PRNewswire/ --
- The UK-Based Subsidiary of News Corporation to Power the Indexing of its Multimedia Assets With Nstein's Text Mining Software
Nstein Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: EIN), a leader in online publishing solutions for newspapers, magazines and online content providers, today announced the signing of a contract with News International Ltd., the UK subsidiary of News Corporation. Nstein's Text Mining Engine from its Online Content Publishing solutions will be used to index incoming pictures at News International. The fast-track implementation is to be completed by the end of the year.
News International, publishing four of the UK's top national newspapers-The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sun and News of the World-receives on a weekly basis tens of thousands of pictures and text files from various feeds. The amount of content is growing so rapidly that it has become increasingly difficult to manage effectively. By setting up its Content Gateway project powered with Nstein's indexing software, News International expects to greatly increase and enhance the processing and repurposing of its digital files.
"Nstein delivers industry-proven text mining solutions capable of handling the growing content indexing needs and stringent requirements of our business. Nstein's solutions, designed for the newspaper industry, as well as the company's e-publishing experts were key to our decision to select their company," stated Judith Dunn, Head of Group Publishing Services at News International. "Improving the management and organization of our digital assets is strategic to our operations, as well as helping our editorial teams to rapidly search, retrieve and reuse these assets," Ms. Dunn concluded.
Luc Filiatreault, President and CEO of Nstein, said: "We are glad to be welcoming News International in the rapidly growing number of users of Nstein's content management solutions. Newspapers face the daily challenge of managing increasingly large volumes of digital assets with limited resources. Nstein's text mining software is designed to automatically tag and intelligently link these assets, therefore ensuring newspapers to fully leverage and monetize their archives, as well as accelerate their content time-to-market."
As part of the agreement, Nstein will also be providing professional services to build a custom taxonomy for News International.
News International is the 13th major media company in 2007 to choose Nstein content management solutions for the media and electronic publishing industry.
