Volicons Observer(R) Professional, Built With Microsoft Silverlight, is Now Shipping

Date: 10/09/2010
Volicon today announced the release of the Observer(R) Professional v1.0 with a streamlined Web interface powered by Microsoft Silverlight. Designed for budget-conscious television stations and companies, the Observer Professional system unites compliance logging, quick and easy scheduling for records, and intuitive search capabilities in a single Web-browser interface to support simplified media monitoring workflows. Now built with Silverlight, the Observer serves as a cross-browser and cross-platform solution that offers greater portability, ease of use, and extensibility on the user's preferred operating system.

"Microsoft is excited that broadcast technology companies such as Volicon are taking advantage of the rich features and capabilities in Silverlight," said David Sayed, senior product manager for Silverlight at Microsoft Corp. "By building with Silverlight, developers can leverage existing skills and tools for building rich, immersive data-driven media applications, while delivering the most cost-effective solutions for their clients."

"The shift of Observer Pro to Silverlight was a natural progression on a technical level, as we have a history of working with Microsoft .NET framework, and it offers a host of new benefits to both our engineering team and the customer base we serve," said Mike Asebrook, Volicon senior director, product marketing. "Our clients will find the redesigned Observer Pro interface to be more intuitive, more visually inviting, and more robust in supporting their media monitoring and logging operations."

The newly released version of the Volicon Observer Pro supports Windows (XP, Vista, 7) and Mac(R) (Mac OS10) operating systems, as well as Windows Internet Explorer, Apple(R) Safari(R), Google Chrome(TM), and Mozilla Firefox(R) Web browsers. The versatile system includes improved streaming capabilities and gives users the flexibility to export video files in .ASF (WM9), H.264, Flash, MPEG-2, or MPEG-4 formats.

By employing Silverlight for the Observer Pro, Volicon has gained access to a rich array of building blocks, which Volicon engineering and product design teams can quickly customize in response to prioritized customer feedback and requirements. With the recent release of Silverlight 4, there are several new tools, including the Rough Cut Editor (RCE), which enables real-time, browser-based video editing. As Microsoft continues to advance Silverlight, Volicon customers will see further improvements to speed and performance, regardless of the platform they use.

"As a company, we stress the importance of user feedback and feature requests, visiting several customers to examine their media monitoring and logging workflows, and we consistently see the value of how our product operates along with several third-party systems," said Asebrook. "Leveraging years of broadcast-industry experience and user feedback, we've created a new streamlined user interface that provides greater utility, with a solid right out-of-the-box user experience with little or no training. Thanks to Silverlight, now anyone can use the Observer Pro on virtually any platform for flexible monitoring and logging at a very low cost per channel. We're very pleased to be shipping this exciting new Observer system."
