NAB 2015: Digital Nirvana and Nexidia Provide Integrated Caption Quality Reporting Solution

Newark, CA, March 31, 2015 –Digital Nirvana, developers of a media management platform for content creation, capture and delivery, have announced an integration with Nexidia Illuminate, a media analysis platform, enabling caption compliance quality reporting and realignment software. The FCC mandates that captions for the hearing impaired be accurate, complete and synchronous with the corresponding video.

Digital Nirvana’s platform leverages the caption monitoring, compliance and synchronization features, as well as the video description compliance capabilities of Nexidia’s Illuminate software. The combined solution will provide immediate and comprehensive reporting on caption and video description compliance and enable users to view the video on a timeline to pinpoint exactly where the captions go out of compliance.

“By feeding the video through Nexidia’s Illuminate software running on our platform, we’re providing an integrated approach that automates compliance monitoring and unifies the reporting process,” said Hiren Hindocha, Digital Nirvana’s Co-Founder, President, and CEO. “It makes the process of maintaining caption compliance much simpler as well as less time-consuming and more cost efficient than the manual spot-checking of material.”

Digital Nirvana’s media management platform provides a simple set up to capture content from multiple sources and publish it to digital platforms – all while monitoring the video and audio for quality and compliance. Through the integration, clips are automatically generated from the Digital Nirvana Media Management Platform with the correct caption information.

“In addition to caption and video description compliance, live news captions are typically five to fifteen seconds out of sync,” explained Drew Lanham, senior vice president and general manager, Nexidia Media and Entertainment Division. “When publishing a clip online, the correct captions are critical. If a caption in a 30-second clip is out of sync by as little as five seconds, the viewer immediately notices this, resulting in a poor user experience. Illuminate can fully automate the synchronization of closed captions with the content within the Digital Nirvana platform.

The integration of Digital Nirvana’s Media Management Platform and Nexidia’s Illuminate software can be seen for the first time at the 2015 NAB Show in April in Las Vegas. Digital Nirvana will exhibit in NAB Booth #SU8813.

The latest version of Digital Nirvana’s Media Management Platform, Version 2.0, incorporates an expanded social media publishing function, virtual machine download, and radio program monitoring and recording.

One highlight of the latest version of our Media Management Platform is the new social media publishing and service function, which offers users ways to better manage their social media accounts. We created this feature because better social media management is a need that we’ve identified in the market, and we’re proud to offer our customers a way to more efficiently engage on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Media Management Platform 2.0 enables users to easily find the most important clips in their program dashboard, then allows them to publish those clips to their social media accounts with a couple of simple clicks. Customers also have the option to have Digital Nirvana staff review each and every video broadcast desired and attach enhanced metadata to relevant clips. The metadata makes media management more time efficient for customers by having it uploaded into internal databases and search engines. Creating enhanced metadata also allows for better user engagement by enabling “More like this” algorithms to identify more content that the user may prefer to view.

Our social media service function gives customers the option to take simpler social media management a step further. Users can now work hand-in-hand with Digital Nirvana’s experienced team to handle media monitoring tasks, including the reviewing of broadcasts, locating of the most valuable clips and content-metadata tagging for optimal repurposing. With Version 2.0, users can choose to publish to their social media accounts themselves, or have Digital Nirvana personnel publish on their behalf. With the latter option, the user remains the ‘face’ of the accounts, but isn’t required to spend time and effort reviewing and publishing clips themselves.

While social media management can be both a time intensive and time sensitive task, Media Management Platform Version 2.0 makes it a simpler job for broadcasters, ad agencies, corporate communications departments, government ministries, media monitoring companies, artists, entertainment companies, and public relations firms alike. Learn more about the social media feature here, and check out more about our Media Management Platform here.

As always, give us a call at +1 (510) 226-9000 or shoot us an email at info@digital-nirvana.com with any questions or inquiries. We look forward to hearing from you, and hope to see you at NAB, where we’ll debut the Media Management Platform 2.0 for the first time!

Newark, CA, March19, 2015 –Digital Nirvana, developers of a media management platform for content creation, capture and delivery, have announced integration of their Media Management Platform with Pikolo Systems, developers of broadcast operations management workflow. Pikolo Systems’ Incident Tracker provides a digital medium for incident logging and resource management.

With Incident Tracker software, every incident from production, acquisition, promotions and playback is recorded and analyzed. Digital Nirvana’s Media Management Platform provides a simple set up to capture content from multiple sources and publish it to digital platforms – all while monitoring the video and audio for quality and compliance.

Integrating the two systems will provide operators with an immediate visual reference within the Pikolo’s GUI of the video broadcast at the time of a reported discrepancy.

“Users want to know immediately what was broadcast at the time of a discrepancy,” said Hiren Hindocha, Digital Nirvana’s Co-Founder, President, and CEO. “With this integration, they will see immediately what was broadcast at the exact point the discrepancy occurred. For example, if an encoder goes down in a station, an operator will receive a discrepancy report saying where and when the encoder went down. With the Pikolo/Digital Nirvana integration, they can also see video of what was broadcast precisely when that encoder went down.”

The integration of Digital Nirvana’s Media Management Platform with Pikolo Systems’ Incident Tracker can be seen for the first time at the NAB2015 convention in April in Las Vegas. Digital Nirvana will exhibit in NAB Booth #SU8813.

Designed specifically for broadcast operations, Pikolo’s Incident Tracker makes operational standardization and assessment easy. Data entry is quick and concise while providing management with detailed reporting and analysis tools. Incident Tracker is used by broadcast operations to manage more than 2000 channels worldwide. The system makes it easy to document operational tasks while eliminating procedural errors. Its integrated enterprise reporting provides easy distribution of daily summaries.

Digital Nirvana is showing Version 2.0 of its Media Management Platform at NAB 2015. Included within Version 2.0 will be the ability to publish audio/video content to popular social media platforms. As part of Version 2.0, broadcasters and content owners can work with Digital Nirvana’s dedicated team to handle time-intensive tasks, such as: reviewing broadcasts and locating clips with the most value, tagging content with the correct metadata for optimal repurposing, writing headlines designed to peak interest from the target audience, and customizing social media postings as required by each network.

At Digital Nirvana, we’re always looking for ways to collaborate with other technology providers to give our clients the most efficient media management technology. Earlier today, we announced our most recent collaboration – our Media Management Platform‘s integration with Pikolo Systems‘ Incident Tracker software.

The Digital Nirvana Media Management Platform provides a simple set up to capture content from multiple sources and publish it to digital platforms – all while monitoring the video and audio for quality and compliance. With Pikolo Systems’ Incident Tracker software, every incident from
production, acquisition, promotions and playback is recorded and analyzed. Integrating the two systems will provide users with an immediate visual reference within the Pikolo’s GUI of the video broadcast at the time of a reported discrepancy. Operators can now see precisely what was being broadcasted at the time that an issue occurred.

We’re looking forword to showing this integration for the first time at next month’s NAB Show, where Digital Nirvana will exhibit in Booth #SU8813. At NAB we’ll be unveiling the latest version of our Media Management Platform, which includes a new social media publishing and service feature. Please visit our booth if you’re attending the show, and feel free to contact us with any questions about our media management technology at info@digital-nirvana.com or +1 (510) 226-9000.

Newark, CA, February 27, 2015 –Digital Nirvana, developers of a media management platform for content creation, capture and delivery, have announced a significant shift within Version 2.0 of the company’s Media Management Platform. To be introduced at the NAB2015 convention in April in Las Vegas, the latest version incorporates expanded social media publishing function, virtual machine download, and radio program monitoring and recording. Digital Nirvana will exhibit in NAB Booth #SU8813. Digital Nirvana’s media management platform provides a simple set up to capture content from multiple sources and publish it to digital platforms – all while monitoring the video and audio for quality and compliance. Included within Version 2.0 will be the ability to publish audio/video content to popular social media platforms. While the publishing ability was a core part of the previous version of the platform, in addition to more networks, users can also take advantage of Digital Nirvana’s highly regarded “knowledge services” business arm to better coordinate and manage social media publishing.

As part of Version 2.0, broadcasters and content owners can work with Digital Nirvana’s dedicated team to handle time-intensive tasks, such as: reviewing broadcasts and locating clips with the most value, tagging content with the correct metadata for optimal repurposing, writing headlines designed to peak interest from the target audience, and customizing social media postings as required by each network. Digital Nirvana staff can manually review each and every audio and video broadcast desired and attach keywords to relevant segments. These keywords can then be uploaded into internal databases and search engines. With Version 2.0, users can either publish themselves or have a Digital Nirvana staffer publish on their behalf through the customer’s social network accounts. The customer remains the ‘face’ of their social media accounts. The system can be customized to work in as individual or as automated a set up as desired. “Social media publishing is time intensive and also time sensitive,” said Hiren Hindocha, Digital Nirvana’s Co-Founder, President, and CEO. “Whether it’s a last-minute touchdown or a dramatic event occurring in the middle of the night during the customer’s time zone, that news must be customized for each of the social media networks, each with a different demographic, a different format, and a different API. We have the technology and operational experience to do just that.” Version 2.0 also includes the ability to monitor radio broadcast including internet radio . Digital Nirvana’s platform can record and provide an interface to play, edit, annotate, search and share. For evaluation, the platform can now be downloaded as a pre-configured, quickly deployable virtual machine. “With media distribution facilities rapidly transitioning towards IP based infrastructure, our solution has become ever more prudent for them,” added Hindocha. Digital Nirvana provides media monitoring and analysis to ad agencies, corporate communications departments, government ministries, media monitoring companies, artists, entertainment companies, and public relations firms. Its services include: ad tracking and analysis, copyrighted content tracking, audio/video logging, content repurposing, transcription, and transcription synchronization. About Digital Nirvana Since 1996, Digital Nirvana has been empowering customers with innovative knowledge management technologies.
