Digital Nirvana at NAB 2011

MonitorIQ™ – Two Years Since Itʼs Introduction – Incredible Successes

LAS VEGAS NV USA 2011 APRIL 11 — This is Digital Nirvanaʼs first year with a booth on the show floor at NAB. Over the past two years, Digital Nirvana quietly penetrated many – if not most – of the major national broadcast and cable networks. These broadcasters deployed MonitorIQ due to its advanced technology and the companyʼs willingness to work closely with them to design and quickly implement needed features not available from other systems.

MonitorIQ Broadcast Monitoring System

MIQ records multiple channels of full-resolution SD/HD audio, video, VANC metadata and captioning. Extensive search capabilities make it easy to locate a particular segment, play it, edit it, generate a cut clip, and send it.

One network uses MIQ to record their program at multiple points in the release path as well as the download from the satellite and off-air from the local O&O. In the case of a glitch, they can precisely locate where in the path the failure occurred. MIQ also provides them with an emergency broadcast quality recording of their 24/7 transmission.

A leading cable news network uses MIQ in several ways. MIQ records all of their transmissions, and within seconds of broadcast, a news production team reviews, edits, and sends clips for publishing on their news website. At another facility, MIQ records 24/7 broadcast quality from multiple fixed cameras across the city, allowing them to easily retrieve video of fast-breaking news.

One major broadcast group uses MonitorIQ at each of their O&Os to record all of their release path feeds. At their national operations center, management can access each system to verify quality and as-runs.
