At the 2020 NAB Show, Actus Digital will demonstrate how its mandatory compliance solution is part of a much larger media intelligence platform, providing cross-organizational benefits to the operations, marketing and research, and new media departments of broadcasters and media companies. The platform includes solutions for compliance, quality-of-service assurance, technical monitoring, content repurposing, rating and competitive analysis tools, advanced AI options, and more.
Traditionally, broadcasters and media operators have relied on automated systems for recording, monitoring and to maintain compliance with mandatory requirements, such as loudness regulations, SCTE standards and closed caption rules. In recent years, compliance solutions have evolved significantly, allowing broadcasters to support a larger variety of video inputs and a growing number of OTT formats. But some compliance solutions go way beyond this.
Today, as broadcasters and TV networks look to further improve the efficiency of their workflow and save costs, artificial intelligence (AI)-based compliance and monitoring is having a major impact on the industry. The role of compliance systems extends beyond technical compliance (i.e., audio and video quality checks and alerts, loudness checks, detection of missing closed captions), which are more considered as technical monitoring, to include content analysis as well as automated content analysis.
A Compliance Platform That Goes Beyond Standard Requirements
Media companies today need a solution that pushes the boundaries of compliance well beyond supporting simple tasks, such as logging, monitoring, and regulation. They require a solution that can also handle complex compliance tasks, with advanced AI options. They want a compliance solution to provide quality assurance tools, video analysis reports, advanced clip creation, OTT monitoring, and multiviewer capabilities, all from a single platform. Moreover, since the industry is changing rapidly, the industry needs flexible solutions that support a range of deployment models.
At the 2020 NAB Show, Actus Digital will demonstrate the expansive functionalities of its media monitoring platform, which offers an intelligent approach to monitoring and support for multiple deployment environments, including on-premises, virtualization, the cloud, and hybrid combinations.
New Products and Improvements Include:
- A new TS analysis solution for in-depth evaluation of transport streams, with the ability to detect ETR 101 290 priority 1, 2, 3 errors; track MPEG sections and tables (i.e., PAT, PMT, NIT, SDT); and display TS statistics in real time. The solution provides an overall view of TS health for enterprise applications via a web-based user interface, enabling global access and multiviewer display of critical errors.
- Enhanced SCTE support, with the ability to compare multichannel SCTE messages and display live or archived SCTE messages, smart filtering for better monitoring, SCTE alerts, and the power to extract SCTE-35 and SCTE-104 for presentation on interactive graphical timelines.
