Digital Nirvana 2018 Year End Recap
With the pace of change in data monitoring and management quickening this year, thanks to the developments in AI, cloud-based technology, and voice and object recognition, companies providing hardware and software for services such as online and broadcast media monitoring, metadata generation, and closed captioning, experienced the same uptick. Digital Nirvana, a global provider of media management solutions and services experienced a 2018 filled with new product introductions, participation in broadcast technology and media industry trade shows, and a significant strategic alliance with the only television and clearing house in the UK.
In April this year, Digital Nirvana joined forces with Clearcast, UK’s sole television ad clearing house and will be their partner for subtitling TV advertisements. Digital Nirvana’s cloud-based Subtitling Solutions is a featured tool within MediaCentral, Clearcast’s online portal for the video advertising industry. With this portal, advertisers can easily determine if their ads follow UK compliance regulations. Clearcast’s MediaCentral is a task-based portal through which advertisers and agencies can quickly connect with providers who offer ad-related services, such as subtitling, airtime booking, soundtrack services, etc.

April also saw a significant product introduction from Digital Nirvana during the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) convention in Las Vegas. Digital Nirvana introduced a software application, Metadator, that automatically exports media from AVID, sends the data over the cloud for automatic speech-to-text conversion and ingests the metadata with locators back into the AVID Interplay, creating a searchable database within the AVID MAM infrastructure. Automating the manual process of combing through footage and creating scene summaries, Metadator simplifies the editing process for broadcasters and content owners.

NAB 2018 was also the site of the introduction of Digital Nirvana’s Version 5.2 of its flagship MonitorIQ Media Management Platform. The company’s innovative broadcast monitoring and logging system enables broadcasters to effectively monitor their video and meet compliance and repurposing requirements and offers a multitude of user-friendly features. Monitor IQ comes as either a hardware, VM (virtual machine) or a Cloud-based application.
Digital Nirvana also showcased its products and services at the International Broadcasters Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam in September, which were first exhibited in the U.S. at NAB, to the European and worldwide market:

EditShare Gets High Marks at Liverpool Screen School Posted: 06/12/2018
EditShare Gets High Marks at Liverpool Screen School
EditShare a technology leader in intelligent shared storage and media management solutions, today announced that The Liverpool Screen School has upgraded the existing media infrastructure to the latest EditShare XStream EFS storage platform as well as added EditShare Flow media asset management (MAM), AirFlow for remote access, and QScan automated quality assurance to support its Journalism, Media Production and Film Studies programs. Noted for their “theory and hands-on practice” approach to education, the school enjoys an internationally recognized reputation for their work as well as the strong links they have forged with companies across the creative and digital sector including the BBC, ITV, and Lime Pictures. “Our student experience spans a broad range of technical expertise,” states Darcy O’Bree, Technical Resource Manager, Liverpool Screen School. “The diversity of our courses requires us to teach a range of different technical methods for realizing the student's creative vision. The students do conventional film production. They do television production, including live and thematic style TV. They’re even getting into things like projection mapping, event visuals, color management, and content quality control (QC).” O’Bree adds, “With increasing student numbers, we were about to hit a wall with capacity in the existing system. Also, the way the system was originally set up five years ago, it wasn’t integrated with the university’s main network, which limited access.”
