21 March 2012

The provider of monitoring, management and compliance systems for broadcast, cable, satellite and fiber networks, will show its flagship product, Monitor IQ, in four versions: Starter, Essentials, Plus and Premier at a range of prices. In its full form, the Monitor IQ BMS (Broadcast Monitoring System) combines the functionality of content recording (HD and SD in full resolution), content searching, retrieval and repurposing, web publishing, signal monitoring, air-check logging, archiving, ad verification and tracking, and competitive analysis in a scalable networked appliance. Its web-based management user interface makes it easy to use for technical and nontechnical personnel. Monitor IQ Starter 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. The Monitor IQ Essentials system accepts ASI/IP, HD/SD-SDI, DVB-T/C/S2, ATSC/QAM and NTSC/QAM, and NTSC/PAL formats. It records audio, video, VANC metadata and captioning in both high- and low-definition. Monitor IQ Plus includes all of the features found within Essentials and adds several new enhancements. Shown for the first time will be the ability to connect and control Monitor IQ via an iPad, iPhone, or Android interface. Other new features include watermark NAVE decoding, a central management server, and a web services (REST) API. 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 meta data harvester. N3438
