Umeå, Sweden, 12th April 2023

Codemill (Nasdaq: CDMIL) has announced a new Accurate.Video integration with Backlight’s iconik media asset management (MAM) solution, combining cloud-native content processing with media asset management. Accurate.Video enables highly efficient media processing, with frame accurate playback and time-based metadata workflows. The Accurate.Video integration means iconik users can now access advanced content processing functionality, such as logging, curation, validation, QC, and media segmentation, with just one click.

Both Accurate.Video and iconik are cloud-native, supporting browser-based content workflows. Iconik allows users to gather and organise media assets securely from any storage, for frictionless media management. The platform uses metadata for enhanced search accuracy, across a wide range of filters. Accurate.Video is built for collaborative, professional media workflows, with time-based metadata in mind, and is designed to optimise labour-intensive asset processing.

Both platforms enhance content with metadata visualisation. Iconik enriches assets with AI for improved search ability. Users can generate transcriptions using speech-to-text services and extract extremely detailed visual metadata, frame by frame, automatically. With Accurate.Video, users can import and create time-based metadata, verify and edit technical metadata, and work with advanced video, audio and subtitle functionality. Accurate.Video also utilises time-based metadata for essential edits and media segmentation, such as sub-clipping, rough-cut editing, and highlight creation.


The integration seamlessly connects the data in iconik with the Accurate.Video workspace. This allows iconik users to reference all associated metadata, comments, markers, and annotations in Accurate.Video. Any changes or renders that media operators work on in Accurate.Video, are automatically updated and stored in iconik.

Rickard Lönneborg, CEO of Codemill, commented: “We’ve seen growing demand from iconik customers to integrate Accurate.Video. This combination delivers a powerful feature-set that will help speed-up content processing and collaboration for busy media teams. With more of the media industry moving to cloud native workflows, users need a unified experience. Deep integration is essential to seamlessly connect best-in-class tools.”
Mike Green, CEO of Backlight Creative, commented: "This integration between Accurate.Video and iconik not only elevates the user experience but also showcases the power of iconik's API in enabling valuable integrations. We're excited to serve a wider range of users, like those in the Accurate.Video community. This collaboration demonstrates the adaptability and effectiveness of media asset management in the cloud, and we're proud to be part of that evolution."

Accurate.Video is a suite of cloud-native solutions that streamline content preparation for broadcast and post-production media professionals. It is designed for seamless integration with any video platform, application, or MAM, and features metadata-driven workflows in a configurable, frame accurate, user-interface.
