Volicon Showcases New Observer Apps At BroadcastAsia

News Image
Volicon is to display five new applications within the company’s Observer® Media Intelligence Platform at this year's BroadcastAsia show.

Volicon’s new Capture application allows broadcasters to capture media from any source at any time, ingesting media either according to a schedule, in real time, and/or via 24/7 recording. The application enables the user to review content as it is captured, clip high-value content and push it directly to editing and MAM systems without time-consuming transcoding steps. Because a low-resolution proxy is created along with the True HD (1080i 25/30, 720p 50/60) recording, both local and remote Observer Media Intelligence Platform users can collaborate to access, review, and clip content to create valuable footage for distribution.

The new Share application allows the broadcaster to repurpose existing content and push it to digital platforms and social media sites. One-button publishing profiles facilitate rapid processing of content to meet appropriate container and encoding requirements for an array of platforms, including target websites, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. Share also makes use of existing closed-captioning text to publish content that is compliant with government regulations.

The Review application provides a solution for reviewing on-air content, validating ad placement and performing competitive analysis. The application facilitates access to broadcast content for users working centrally and across geographically distributed sites, thus giving all key stakeholders the ability to keep an eye on their own broadcasts and associated ratings data within a single GUI.
Because the application makes high-resolution live and historical broadcast content available locally and lower-resolution proxy versions available remotely on any device, users can review and analyse their broadcasts at any time, from anywhere. The application interfaces with the playout automation system to provide as-run log data for comparison with the frame-accurate recording of the broadcast output.

The Comply application enables users to record, clip, and export their broadcasts to meet regulatory and licensing requirements. Addressing a complete array of regulations, ranging from 'decency' to closed captioning to loudness, the application allows users to respond quickly to compliance requests. Leveraging Volicon’s proven compliance monitoring technology, Comply lays critical A/V metadata over frame-accurate video to create a clear visual affidavit of compliance.

Monitor allows users to monitor video quality, respond to fault reports and use a full recording of the on-air broadcast for instant review of errors and their impact. While continuously analysing logged content for a variety of faults such as black or static screen, loss of video or closed captions, and incorrect audio levels, this application provides flexible, individually configurable alert thresholds, with notifications delivered via email or SNMP traps.
Quality measurement thresholds may be configured per channel to optimise performance and error reporting. The application provides an integrated multiviewer feature that enables Observer Media Intelligence Platform users to use their standard displays as multiviewers or record the output of a traditional multiviewer. With multiple streams presented on a network wall, users can respond immediately to any issues, instantly grabbing the suspect stream via their desktop interfaces to begin resolving the problem.
