Smart Autogeneration of Thumbnails Banners, and Socials with Content Aware Resize

Earlier this week, we introduced media/ContentAwareResize, a microservice which crops images to any size... while ensuring that the important parts do not get removed! It does so by detecting important content (faces, etc) and centering the crop on these components, so you don't accidentally...

How to Censor Faces with Video Processing Algorithms

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost from Wikimedia Commons

Earlier this week we introduced Censorface, an algorithm that finds the faces in images and then either blurs or puts a colored box over the faces to censor them. We thought it would be fun to pair it up with some of our video processing...

Video Editing: extracting metadata from movie scenes

Recently, we wrote a blog post about an algorithm called Scene Detection that takes a video and returns the timestamps of scenes along with subclips that are associated with the subclip's timestamps.

You can use this information to find appropriate scene lengths for creating video trailers or you...

Reducing API Overhead by 70% with Prometheus and Grafana

Effectively monitoring any system is difficult. Ideally an engineer should be able to quickly get an idea of how well the system is functioning, whether things look normal, and be notified when they are not. A graph can convey much of this information with minimal thought processing for an...
