VideoLocalize granted patent approval for its innovative automated synchronization technology
VideoLocalize, Inc. announced on August 12, 2021 that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted a patent for its hybrid video and audio synchronization invention. The patent, U.S. Patent No. 11,064,245, covers the method to automatically synchronize an audio stream (translated audio voice file) with a video stream (original source), and generating a mixed video much quicker than traditional manual methods.
Generally, synchronizing a video in its original source language with an audio track in another language (target language) requires hours of manual effort and technical expertise because languages are inherently different in length, especially when spoken. The length is also affected by the speaker and the translated text. This means that the length of the audio in the target language can be considerably shorter or longer than the source language in the video. Trying to ‘fit’ the target language audio into the source video therefore poses a significant challenge in terms of technical skill, time and financial considerations.
“We are extremely pleased that the US Patent Office has recognized the uniqueness of our automated video dubbing technology and granted this patent,” said George Zhao, CEO of VideoLocalize. “Our patented invention is a game changer for the localization industry as it can achieve faster post-production speed and make fully automatic AI dubbing possible, therefore saving both time and cost for video localization. This is especially crucial for businesses who want to reach a wider global audience faster and more cost effectively.”
VideoLocalize is the world’s first fully automated video localization platform that reduces the high cost and time traditionally associated with localizing a video. Founded in 2016 and headquartered in Toronto, Canada, VideoLocalize’s mission is to make video localization faster and more cost-effective.
