Digital Nirvana to Show Broadcast Suite for First Time in Asia

At Broadcast Asia 2012, the latest version of Digital Nirvanas flagship broadcast monitoring software, Monitor IQ, and two products introduced at the NAB 2012 show will make their Asian debut. The two new products that will be shown for the first time in Asia are MediaPro IQ for repurposing content for multi-platform distribution and ManyView IQ, an enterprise-wide system for video distribution over IP. Broadcasters can see demonstrations at the Digital Nirvana booth 4N4-08, June 19-22 at Suntec Singapore.

After the enthusiastic reception we received to our new features and products in April at the NAB convention, were looking forward to showing the latest innovations to our full broadcast suite at Broadcast Asia, said Ned Chini, vice president of sales and marketing, Digital Nirvana. Broadcasters in Asia are a prime focus for our company. Our products are unique in the market and offer capabilities and cost savings that competitive solutions simply do not.

Monitor IQ, for example, is the only broadcast monitoring system that provides centralized management, automatic ad detection, a directors audio track, as well as an advanced metadata harvester¢. Because our platform is based on open web services (REST) APIs, our software can be easily integrated with third party products and can scale from one to multiple servers and from one to hundreds of channels. All Digital Nirvana solutions are web enabled, so users can access the software through any standard web browser without ActiveX component.

Monitor IQ

Monitor IQ is a monitoring, logging, compliance, and content republishing system for TV networks and stations. It combines the functionality of content recording (HD and SD in full resolution), content searching, retrieve and repurposing, Web publishing, signal monitoring, air-check logging, archiving, ad verification and tracking, and competitive analysis in a scalable networked appliance.

Several new features of MonitorIQ were recently introduced, and the system has been divided into four packages so a wide range of broadcasters can take advantage of the companys technology.

Monitor IQ Starter

This entry-level package offers all the logging functionality necessary for a one- to two-channel system and includes 90 days of low-resolution storage.Searching is based upon keywords, titles, subtitles, descriptions, textual metadata, closed-caption text and imported logs, with filtering by time, date and channel. Recordings can be easily edited, clipped, stored and sent via email or FTP.

Monitor IQ Essentials

Monitor IQ Essentials is a logging and monitoring system that includes all the functionality necessary for broadcasters to ensure regulatory compliance. New features being shown at Broadcast Asia include support for IP as an input source, and loudness monitoring is now bundled in as a standard feature within the package.

The Monitor IQ Essentials system accepts DVB-T/C/S2, ASI, ASI/IP, HD/SD-SDI, ATSC/QAM and NTSC/QAM, and NTSC/PAL formats. It records audio, video, VANC metadata and captioning in both high- and low-definition. As with the Starter package, searching is based upon keywords, titles, subtitles, descriptions, textual metadata, closed-caption text and imported logs, with filtering by time, date and channel. And recordings can also be edited, clipped, stored and sent via email or FTP.

Monitor IQ Plus

Monitor IQ Plus includes all of the features found within Essentials and adds several new enhancements. New features being shown at Broadcast Asia are the ability to connect and control Monitor IQ via an iPad, iPhone, or Android interface. This mobile feature makes it easy for field sales reps to show clients their ad content in the context of the broadcast programming.  Other new features include watermark NAVE decoding, a central management server, and a web services (REST) API.

Monitor IQ Premier

The Premier package extends beyond the capabilities found in the other packages with innovative, new features, such as: ad detection, directors audio track; integration with third party routers and multi-viewers, and an advanced metadata harvester.

Advanced metadata harvesting provides the ability to track any data the system logs and collects from alarms or from the broadcast feed. It can locate where the error occurred in the broadcast signal, collect forensic analysis about the event, and report that data back to the customer. It provides access to the data and to the mapping point of when, where and how that video was recorded.  This new feature dynamically enhances broadcast discrepancy reporting by allowing station executives and engineers to hyperlink straight to the reported video and view a problem or issue.

MediaPro IQ

The new MediaPro IQ solution is a content repurposing system for multi-platform distribution.  It records video feeds in full HD and offers a quick, low-cost way to repurpose HD clips from broadcast.  This new solution is designed for news and sports directors who frequently need to repurpose content.

MediaPro IQ allows users to easily edit, clip and publish live or recorded content in real-time.  Search is based on keywords, program titles, descriptions, textual metadata, closed-caption, as-run logs, traffic logs, alarm and discrepancy logs and time/date or channel filters.

MediaPro IQ is compatible with such web browsers as: FireFox, Safari, Internet Explorer, and Chrome. iPad, iPhone, and Android interface are also available. Video can be exported to Flash, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, and XDCAM and other formats for content repurposing.

ManyView IQ

With the new ManyView IQ system, its now easy and cost-effective to deploy a private, enterprise-wide IPTV system for use by producers and staff who need to view real-time video signals at their desktop. The system eliminates the need for costly coaxial cabling, IP encapsulators, and IP output encoders. IP multicast delivers real-time video feeds to desktop and set-top boxes throughout an organization. ManyView IQ is DNLA-enabled, which provides VOD-like ability to store, distribute and publish offline video assets throughout the enterprise for any device on the network, such as: desktops, mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, Android, smart phones), set-top boxes, connected TVs, and media players.

ManyView IQ is compatible with current standards-compliant web browsers, enabling an on-the-go workflow through a web browser. It also has iPad, iPhone, and Android interfaces available.

Both MediaPro IQ and Manyview IQ are cost-effective, all-in-one scaled network devices that are based upon open APIs for easy integration into other systems. They also both reliably record from IP, ASI, ASI/IP, SD/HD-SDI, ATSC, QAM, NTSC, PAL or DVB-T/C/S2 protocols.
