Introducing the First Cloud-Based Solution for Streamed Media Monitoring at NAB 2013

At NAB 2013 we’re introducing AnyStreamIQ™ – 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. We’ll exhibit in Booth N3434 during the NAB convention, being held from April 8-11th at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

AnyStreamIQ is designed specifically for the new streamed media monitoring requirements of broadcasters, content creators, AnyStream_InfoImage_header_vertical2aggregators and distributors.

Given today’s move toward “TV Anywhere,” broadcasters are expanding the video delivery ecosystem and are streaming video content to desktops and mobile devices.  Within this streamed programming, they are inserting ads that are different from ads running during the traditional broadcast. TV stations must create a log of their streaming content in order to provide a “proof of airing” to their advertising clients. There will be a growing need for online ad monitoring since industry experts are expecting a triple digit increase in ad growth for online media through 2017.

Another situation increasing the need for live stream monitoring is the new FCC web captioning requirements. These new mandates require broadcasters to provide web captioning for hearing impaired viewers.  Broadcasters must provide proof of compliance for these new mandates as well.

Digital Nirvana to Present at the NAB Show Enterprise Computing PIT

The 2013 NAB Show’s Enterprise Computing PIT is a destination pavilion on the show floor designed to provide attendees with an intimate meeting place to learn about new tools playing an ever-expanding role in the world of media and entertainment. We’ve announced plans to present at the PIT, with a session that will focus on advanced monitoring for the broadcast infrastructure. The presentation will take place on Monday, April 8 at 3:45 pm.

At the NAB Show, which runs April 8-11, the Enterprise Computing PIT will be located at Booth N6621 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. During the conference, we’ll be exhibiting our broadcast suite of content repurposing and monitoring solutions, including the latest version of MonitorIQ, in Booth N3434.

Hiren HindochaOur CEO, Hiren Hindocha, will co-present with Fereidoon Khosravi, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Venera Technologies. We recently formed a strategic partnership with Venera that allows us to leverage their quality control and test and measurement components with our flagship MonitorIQ broadcast monitoring solution.

Hindocha and Khosravi will discuss how monitoring systems must mirror the increasing sophistication of the broadcast plants in which they reside. And they will address why high-quality monitoring and analyzing of digital video and audio signals is so important for broadcasters today. No longer should multiple operators have to run between disparate computers to track different broadcast parameters.  The ability to cross reference all on-site and off-site systems within an enterprise, harvest metadata, drill down and take action on any issue – all from one central user interface – is what’s expected from a monitoring system today.
