On The NAB 2017 Exhibit Floor: ENCO & Actus Digital

ENCO has forged a partnership with Belgium-based broadcast compliance monitoring specialists Actus Digital, with ENCO becoming the first North American distributor of Actus’ comprehensive media intelligence platform. The two companies will highlight their relationship and interoperability between their complementary solutions.

Designed for broadcasters, networks, cable operators, IPTV providers and government organizations, the Actus platform is a cost-effective recording and compliance solution for ensuring broadcasts meet regulatory requirements — such as those mandated by the FCC — including closed captioning, audio loudness limits and more.

The Actus-View application, the cornerstone of the Actus platform, provides broadcast video logging and compliance monitoring through an intuitive, HTML5, web-based user interface. Operators can record and monitor any number of channels, create clips, retrieve recordings and send captured media to editing and media asset management systems, all within a single unified user experience accessible from any connected workstation, tablet or mobile device.

Actus Clip-Factory provides an integrated solution for repurposing broadcast content into video clips for web and mobile viewing, OTT, VOD, catch-up TV and social media. Reducing complexity and costs by eliminating the need for multiple separate products, Actus Clip-Factory incorporates video recording, content extraction, editing, metadata application, transcoding and delivery management into a single streamlined solution.

Actus solutions are ideal complements to ENCO’s television offerings, including the MOM (Media Operations Manager) automation and playout platform, enCaption automated live closed captioning engine and ClipFire instant media playback system. Under the new partnership, ENCO’s world-class sales and support teams will provide Actus Digital with its first U.S-based presence. In addition to bringing the benefits of the Actus platform to North American customers, ENCO will also leverage its renowned customer service capabilities to assist Actus users.

Other Actus solutions complementary to ENCO video solutions include Actus-AdWatch for automatic advertising tracking and verification, Actus Rating-Analyzer for competitive viewership analysis, Actus Alert-Center for broadcast quality assurance, and Actus ChangeTracker for automatically detecting modifications between linear feeds.

Actus-View and Actus Clip-Factory will be showcased alongside ENCO’s complete range of television and radio automation and playout solutions in the ENCO booth (N2024) at the 2017 NAB Show, while the full Actus platform will be demonstrated in Actus Digital’s own booth, SU11021.
