Studio71 Releases First Brand Safety Product With Human Review "Studio71 Context"
Utilizes machine and human learning to ensure 100 percent brand-safe content By PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, April 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Studio71, a Red Arrow Studios company, today released "Studio71 Context," the only offering for brand safety in the digital video space that fully utilizes both machines and humans to review every video for content quality and brand safety. Advertisers demand a variety of levels of brand safety not only from keywords but also to make certain their brands are running on content that is contextually relevant--Studio71 Context examines content to ascertain it's not offensive visually or audibly, and content is also examined by a human to cross-check for brand safety contextual guardrails.

Studio71 Context

A beta of Studio71 Context was created in early 2017 and officially launched today as a response to the need of transparency into brand safety. Studio71 invested in human scanning and has spent the past year perfecting Studio71 Context. Studio71 advertisers who are running ads through this product have verified Studio71 Context to be 100 percent brand safe.

The three-step process includes:

  • First, Studio71 Context scans all text and data including titles, tags and closed-captioned descriptions for hundreds of thousands of key words that have been deemed inappropriate including curse words, hate speech and words describing violent and sexual activities.
  • Next, Studio71 Context uses visual recognition technology to scan our videos for nudity, drug use, weapons and other activities that may not appear in text.
  • Before we label a video brand safe -- a human reviews it. Someone watches every video we label brand safe because human review applies the context that computers just can't understand.

"This announcement continues our commitment to provide Canadian advertisers a safe environment with some of the top inventory and most scale in the country. YouTube is essential for driving performance on video buys and the Context tool helps partners who are looking for more control over their investments. The fact is, we always knew our network of Canadian superstars like Lilly Singh, Kalyn Nicholson and Matt Santoro was brand-safe but now we can prove it," said Jordan Bortolotti, Executive Vice President, Studio71 Canada.

Studio71 Context is a proprietary product developed by Mike Flynn, Chief Technology Officer of Studio71 and his team, in conjunction with EVP of Media Sales Matt Crowley's team in response to demand in market for buyers seeking better, more transparent, brand safe contextually relevant content for their advertisers. There are varied levels of Studio71 Context with the goal being to set the right application for every client and holding company.
