DIRECT-INFO aims to create a basic system for semi-automatic sponsorship tracking in the area of media monitoring. Its main goal is to offer an integrated system combining the output of basic media analysis modules to semantically meaningful trend analysis results, which shall give executive managers and policy makers a solid basis for their strategic decisions. In this paper we put a special emphasis on the subsystems logo recognition, the multimodal scene classification and the text analysis subsystem.
