Crystal Vision introduces profanity delay system

Cleanit allows operators to prevent the broadcast of unwanted material

Crystal Vision has unveiled a new profanity delay system called Cleanit.

Available for protecting video as well as audio, Cleanit allows a live content stream to be delayed by up to 20 seconds in HD (10 seconds in 3Gb/s or 110 seconds in SD), giving the operator time to prevent the broadcast of certain material (expletives, obscene gestures, wardrobe malfunctions, bloopers, competitor mentions, coughing fits or technical problems).

Cleanit 1 and Cleanit 3 are both designed for video containing embedded audio. Cleanit 1’s audio cover allows the operator to mute/shuffle up to 16 channels of embedded audio to mask unwanted content, while Cleanit 3’s audio and video cover allows for audio mute/shuffle of up to 16 channels of embedded audio as well as video freeze (or black).

Cleanit 2 is designed for video and discrete audio, with its audio cover allowing for audio mute/shuffle of eight channels of 110 ohm AES or four channels of analogue audio, while Cleanit Custom provides additional functionality (including the insertion of a graphic or audio file or clean switching to another source).

One standard Cleanit will fit in a desk top box, with up to three in a 1U frame or six in a 2U frame. The system can be operated free-of-charge from a web browser running on any device connected to the same network using VisionWeb, its simple GUI making it easy to set the delay timings and activate the audio and video covers.

Crystal Vision MD Philip Scofield said: “Customers have told us that the Cleanit profanity delay gives them confidence to make programmes which engage with the audience. Anything inappropriate is simply and safely removed. The configuration options ensure that the operation meets the exact requirement and provides value for money.”
