GITEX Technology Week has been extremely interesting and packed with latest and greatest technological innovations and implementations.

Geneza has traditionally participated on the Booth of Forefront Technologies, an exclusive dealer of MediaINFO Digital Library solution for Middle East. We also had an excelent presence at governmental hall, where Dubai Media Inc. showcased for the first time to the public the THAKERA-TECH project powered by MediaINFO Digital Library. THAKERA-TECH has showcased a selection of old scanned Newspapers, newly published Newspapers in PDF formats and collection of Photographs, spanning last 35 years. Whole selection was automatically indexed and made fully searchable through content by an automated ingestion of MediaINFO. Installation was a huge success among visitors to Dubai Media Inc Booth, which included a number of visits from Royal Families od Dubai, Ajman, Abu Dhabi and other.

Visitors were able to experience the latest achievements of Digital Library Software and heavily customized THAKERA-TECH interface. Success of the project heavily relies of deep integration of arabic text recognition with improved accuracy which is a result of a year-long hard work based on extremely significant and strategic partnership between ABBYY Advanced OCR Solutions and Geneza - MediaINFO Digital Library.

MediaINFO also announced an integration of advanced speech-to-text solution for videos developed by Integracast. Partnership will allow a new module to MediaINFO Video support that will automatically recognize spoken words and make them fully searchable witin MediaINFO Digital Library system.

We thank all the visitors for taking time to explore what is new with MediaINFO Digital Library and to experience it first-hand.

There were several newspaper and TV reports/interviews done and we will link them in our "Press about us" section under news, which includes twitter links.
