Cognitive Services Computer Vision API powers Teamstream video search

Teamstream and its clients have a problem understanding the content inside their video libraries—a problem not just for them, but for everyone who uses traditional methods of archiving and retrieving videos. A video is typically created by a team, indifferently tagged, and saved out to a file in some repository—a file server or a cloud-based shared service like YouTube.
