OmniBus iTX Platform Adds Integrated Compliance Recording

The award-winning provider of comprehensive broadcast automation, content management and workflow solutions, OmniBus Systems, has announced support for Ideas Unlimited's ContentProbe in a close integration with iTX that provides built-in control of compliance recording within the iTX transmission environment, together with fault detection and alarms.
Compliance recording is a regulatory requirement for most broadcasters around the world, and the ContentProbe plug-in for iTX gives a fully integrated solution that delivers reliable and economical recording of channel outputs for regulatory or technical compliance and archiving.
Each ContentProbe unit can record four channels, and can output to DVD or a desktop player as required. ContentProbe feedback to iTX provides detection of faults such as frozen output, black or blue screen or defective audio and any detected faults are automatically entered into iTX's log, triggering an immediate alarm. Users can click on the log entry to see a desktop playback of the incident before deciding how to correct the defect.
Glyn Powell-Evans, Managing Director of Ideas Unlimited, said: "ContentProbe already uses the OmniBus G3 interface so it offers a familiar look and feel to iTX operators. Now, with this very tight integration, iTX users will have the benefits of ContentProbe's compliance monitoring and recording from within the iTX desktop, with the additional advantage of complete control with extra feedback and functionality."
Ian Fletcher, Chief Technical Officer of OmniBus Systems, said: "The ContentProbe integration with iTX is a good example of a third-party extension of the platform's capabilities to provide additional features that broadcasters need. Because the platform architecture makes it easy to achieve a high degree of integration, there is a huge benefit for broadcasters in the level of the automation that can be created. This in turn means they can run a smarter operation and provide more robust and profitable services."
The ContentProbe compliance recording option for iTX will be available from September 2009.
