combination, applications engineered for the Volicon platform give users the functionality they require to meet their monitoring objectives. When equipped with the Review application, the Volicon platform serves as a fast and intuitive solution for reviewing on-air content, validating ad placement, and performing competitive analysis. Capable of ingesting media continuously, according to a schedule, or in real time, the Observer Media Intelligence Platform can generate both a low- resolution proxy and a True HD (1080i 25/30, 720p 50/60) recording of content to enable local and remote users to collaborate evaluating valuable aired footage, whether to improve program content or prepare recorded content for further distribution. The Review application allows users working anywhere to access and review live and historical broadcast content. When accessing this material on a local network, users can work with high-resolution versions, and when working remotely, they can access lower-resolution proxy versions. Compatible with virtually any connected mobile device, the platform makes these proxies available — along with metadata such as ratings data — to users anywhere, anytime. Staff thus can review and analyze their broadcasts, and those of competitors, with complete flexibility. The Monitor application builds on Volicon’s renowned technology to allow users to monitor video quality, respond to fault reports, and use a full recording of the on-air broadcast for instant review of errors and their impact. An integrated multiviewer feature enables users to drive their standard displays as multiviewers and instantly grab and evaluable a suspect stream via their desktop interfaces. At the same time, Volicon’s Comply application gives users the ability to record, clip, and export their broadcasts to meet regulatory and licensing requirements, ranging from decency to closed captioning to loudness, with a clear visual affidavit of compliance. As broadcasters take on the many challenges associated with successful delivery and monetization of their content, applications within the Observer Media Intelligence Platform provide them with the tools needed to address critical monitoring and analysis tasks quickly and with efficiency.
