A look at the Reuters Insider technology
Melanie Rodier of Wall Street & Technology writes about how the new Reuters Insider can help traders.
Rodier writes, “Reuters Insider also allows firms to self-broadcast research, market commentary, morning calls and trade ideas straight to the desktops and mobile phones of Thomson Reuters customers via their own branded channels.
“With technology developed by Thomson Reuters and some partners, users are able to see a voice-generated transcript of each video, and by clicking on a particular word in the script they can go directly to where that word is spoken in the video itself, drastically reducing the amount of time it would normally take to rewind and fast-forward a video to find a particular point, or sentence, of interest.
“‘You have a tool kit with transcripts and metadata that allows you to query on demand information – with a combination of different phrases and ideas so you can intelligently search the content on the platform,’ Eric Frank, president, investment & advisory, Thomson Reuters, explained in an interview with WS&T.
