  11/1999 - 4/2001 IBM Watson Hawthorne, NY

  Contractor

Media Production Suite project entails capturing an episode of a [CNN] broadcast, digitizing it into MPEG-2 format, running the sound through ViaVoice to create an index of keywords, and storing the video and associated text into IBM-DB2 using Content Manager (a.k.a. Digital Library). Diagnosed and integrated hardware and coded software for data mining (of rich media, BLOBs) using Virage's video and audio logger in a client (Win)-server (AIX) environment. Resolved critical issues on disparate platforms, releases and configurations. My direct efforts at client site before a major release closed a $2M deal. (SQL, DB2, MS-IIS, Apache, XML parser, IBM-WebSphere & VideoCharger).
