The combination of Actus Digital’s media intelligence platforms for broadcast recording and storage and Crystal Insight™ for video metadata insertion and validation create a powerful network monitoring and management solution, which ensures quality and efficiency throughout the entire media lifecycle from creation to distribution.

At NAB Show New York, Actus Digital and Crystal will be co-exhibiting and demonstrating a range of solutions for operational efficiency and intelligence. Crystal, known for its monitoring of video contribution, playout, encoding, and distribution, ensures content flows to the right place at the right time. Actus Digital ensures the video has been delivered, recorded, and monitored for accuracy and compliance.

Crystal will also be demonstrating the SCTE-104 insertion and validation capability of Crystal Insight™ to generate frame-accurate SCTE-35 markers so Linear to OTT and Live to VOD processes can be automated. Similarly, Actus will be exhibiting easy-to-use video clip functionality to support broadcast network’s social media promotions.

Roger Franklin, CEO, Crystal, commented:

“Broadcasters are facing ever increasing pressure to validate the distribution of the content to the right platform at the right time, and there is no room for error. The combination of our solutions with those from Actus Digital will give our mutual clients an overview of the entire media lifecycle.”

“Many of our customers are looking for solutions to monitor their video for compliance purposes, not just closed caption and loudness, but also to enable clips for social and new media platforms. Actus provides both solutions in one integrated platform,”

added Raphael Renous, CTO, Actus Digital.

“Creating a functional combination of our solutions with those from Crystal, customers can now get a much broader media monitoring solution.”
