There is a need for automatic processing and extracting of meaningful metadata from multimedia information, especially in the audiovisual industry. This higher level information is used in a variety of practices, such as enriching multimedia content with external links, clickable objects and useful related information in general. This paper presents a system for efficient multimedia content analysis and automatic annotation within a multimedia processing and publishing framework. This system is

The results are exported in meaningful metadata that can be utilized in various ways. The system has been developed and successfully tested in the framework of the EC Horizon 2020 Mecanex project, targeting advertising and production markets.
