Volicon will be demonstrating its Observer version 7.0, TS MPEG transport stream logging and monitoring system at Broadcast Asia, this year. This version has been enhanced to work with a broader array of inputs, including ASI, QAM, 8-VSB, and DVB-T MPEG TS interfaces, and to provide improved system density for HD and SD programs. Enhanced user interfaces on the Observer system make it easier for cable, satellite, broadcast, and IPTV operators to address the volume and complexity of broadcast and network services.
Volicon will show how the Observer 7.0 system allows users to log MPEG transport streams continuously, as well as monitor A/V content including BS-1770-1/2/3 loudness and other correlations of data and video. Additionally, Observer 7.0 allows users to stream and export content to all stakeholders in the media enterprise. Because Observer TS logs the full transport stream, the user is able to go back an hour, a day, a week, or a month to examine and/or export content and effectively eliminate chronic issues with service handoffs. Low-bit-rate proxies, WMV or H.264, and DVR-like frame-accurate controls allow for easy content review, even when operating over an enterprise network or WAN. Its low-resolution proxy streaming functionality gives users the benefit of easy desktop review of live and recorded content and enables engineering staff to monitor and maintain quality of experience.
