About the M3S
The Multi-Media Monitoring System (M3S) ingests the satellite broadcast channel Russia-24 as well as channels in Chinese and Arabic. The video and audio is transcribed in the native script then translated into English, creating a video feed that is searchable with Boolean text strings. Additionally, the M3s system has web and social media feeds that are integrated into searches so that researchers and instructors can study events, movements, and other phenomena through all three types of media.
