Digital Nirvana to introduce solution for streamlined media monitoring

At NAB 2013 Digital Nirvana will introduce AnyStream IQ, which the company claims is the industry’s first cloud-based solution for streamed media monitoring. It provides reliable recording, logging and monitoring of live and recorded streamed broadcasts for web captioning compliance and proof of advertising. AnyStream IQ is designed specifically for the new streamed media monitoring requirements of broadcasters, content creators, aggregators and distributors. “AnyStream IQ is the first cloud-based solution to record and monitor streamed media for web captioning compliance and proof of advertising,” said Hiren Hindocha, president and CEO of Digital Nirvana. “We’re extremely eager to demonstrate this at NAB this year. We expect a very enthusiastic response from content creators who must comply with the new FCC mandates on streamed content. It addresses many challenges they now face, and greatly simplifies the entire process.” AnyStream is a cloud-based subscription service, with no hardware or software to install. Users just specify the URL of the stream, and AnyStream IQ records the streams, extracts the closed captions (if any), and provides a browser-based interface to search the recorded streams. With its Cut/Clip feature, users can make frame-accurate in and out points on video using the H.264 standard and share the clip for either compliance or proof of airing purposes. AnyStream IQ can easily complement a station’s current, in-house compliance logging system. AnyStream IQ records both FLV and HLS streaming formats for desktop computers, tablets and smart phones. It extracts closed captions accompanying the streams. It also extracts advertisements within the streams. As a cloud-based solution, AnyStream IQ offers several budget-friendly benefits. It eliminates upfront installation and server maintenance costs, and it turns monitoring into an operating expense as opposed to a capital expense. With subscription-based pricing, the cost of monitoring is spread over the course of an entire year. N3434
