CCW 2013: Digital Nirvana to Show Live Stream and Broadcast Monitoring Software, Plus Content Repurposing Solution

Newark, CA, October 30, 2013 – Digital Nirvana’s live stream media monitoring solution, broadcast monitoring software, and content repurposing system for multi-platform distribution will be front and center at the upcoming Content & Communications World Expo (CCW). Being held from November 13-14th at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, CCW is an annual convention focused on media and entertainment technology that includes HDWorld, SATCON and the Production + Post conferences.

Digital Nirvana will exhibit in Booth #1257 at the show.

“We’re very excited about CCW 2013,” said Hiren Hindocha, president and CEO of Digital Nirvana. “It’s a dynamic show that grows in popularity each year. It’s the perfect venue to present innovative technology. We’ve got a unique set of products that offer the capabilities and cost savings customers need now. We anticipate a very positive reception at this show next month.”

AnyStreamIQTM, the industry’s first live stream media monitoring solution, will be showcased within Digital Nirvana’s CCW booth. This cloud-based software-as-a-service helps broadcasters record, log and monitor live streamed media, validate ad runs, prove web captioning compliance, and cut clips for easy sharing. AnyStreamIQ is designed specifically for the new streamed media monitoring requirements of broadcasters, content creators, aggregators and distributors.

Because it’s a cloud-based subscription service, there is no hardware or software to install. Users just specify the URL of the stream, and AnyStreamIQ records the streams, extracts the closed captions (if any), and provides a browser-based interface to search the recorded streams. With its Cut/Clip feature, users can easily mark in and out points on the video and share the clip for either compliance or proof of airing purposes. AnyStreamIQ complements a station’s current, in-house broadcast compliance logging system.

In addition to AnyStreamIQ, Digital Nirvana offers an innovative solution for traditional broadcast monitoring. MonitorIQ is the only broadcast monitoring system that provides automatic ad detection, a director’s audio track, as well as an advanced metadata harvester™capability.  MonitorIQ 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 while offering the scalability that broadcasters need.

The latest software includes several features that are a direct result of customer feedback. Among the new, customer-suggested features are: flexible content archiving, real-time newscast exporting, and automatic extraction of Program Guide data from the broadcast stream.

Because the platform is based on open web services (REST) API’s, Digital Nirvana’s software can be easily integrated with third party products and can scale from one to multiple servers and from one to hundreds of channels. All Digital Nirvana solutions are web enabled, so users can access the software through any standard web browser without ActiveX component.

The company will also feature its MediaProTM content repurposing system for multi-platform distribution, which offers a low-cost way to repurpose HD clips from cable and broadcast. This new solution records encrypted cable feeds in full HD and is ideal for news and sports directors who frequently repurpose content from cable channels. For the broadcast engineer, it eliminates the need to maintain multiple set top boxes, frees up valuable rack space, and removes the cost of multiple DVRs.
 
MediaPro IQ allows users to easily edit, clip and publish live or recorded content in real-time.  Search is based on keywords, program titles, descriptions, textual metadata, closed-caption, as-run logs, traffic logs, alarm and discrepancy logs and time/date or channel filters.

Newark, CA, March 22, 2012 — Digital Nirvana, a provider of monitoring, management and compliance systems for broadcast, cable, satellite and fiber networks, will introduce two new products at the NAB convention starting April 14th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Digital Nirvana will exhibit in booth N3438 during the show.

Digital Nirvana is best known within the broadcast industry for its flagship product, MonitorIQ broadcast monitoring system. MonitorIQ is a monitoring, logging, compliance, and content republishing system for TV networks and stations. It combines the functionality of content recording (HD and SD in full resolution), content searching, retrieve 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 non-technical personnel.

At NAB 2012, Digital Nirvana will introduce MediaPro IQ, a content repurposing system for multi-platform distribution, and ManyView IQ, an enterprise-wide IP video distribution system. Both new Digital Nirvana solutions are cost-effective, all-in-one scaled network devices that are based upon open API’s for easy integration into other systems. They also both reliably record from IP, ASI, ASI/IP, SD/HD-SDI, ATSC, QAM, NTSC, PAL or DVB-T/C/S2 protocols.

“Our two new products take the core attributes of what sets our current solution apart from competitive systems — an easy-to-use interface, open API’s, reliable high-resolution recording, and on-the-go mobile accessibility — and delivers those benefits with a laser focus on unique capabilities that are crucial for broadcasters today,” explained Ned Chini, vice president of sales and marketing, Digital Nirvana. “With MediaPro IQ and ManyView IQ, we’re introducing solutions that help drive workflow efficiency and reduce costs for our customers.”

Fast Content Repurposing from Cable and Broadcast

MediaPro IQ offers the industry’s quickest, low-cost way to repurpose HD clips from cable as well as broadcast. This new solution is designed for news and sports directors who frequently repurpose content from cable channels. By intelligently using cable card technology, MediaPro IQ records encrypted cable feeds in full HD. For the broadcast engineer, it eliminates the need to maintain multiple set top boxes, frees up valuable rack space, and removes the cost of multiple DVRs.

MediaPro IQ allows users to easily edit, clip and publish live or recorded content in real-time. Search is based on keywords, program titles, descriptions, textual metadata, closed-caption, as-run logs, traffic logs, alarm and discrepancy logs and time/date or channel filters.

MediaPro IQ is compatible with such web browsers as: FireFox, Safari, Internet Explorer, and Chrome. iPad, iPhone, and Android interface are also available. Video can be exported to Flash, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, and XDCAM and other formats for content repurposing.

Real-time Video on the Desktop

With the new ManyView IQ system, it’s now easy and cost-effective to deploy a private, enterprise-wide IPTV system for use by producers and staff who need to view real-time video signals at their desktop. The system eliminates the need for costly coaxial cabling, IP encapsulators, and IP output encoders. IP multicast delivers real-time video feeds to desktop and set-top boxes throughout an organization. ManyView IQ is DNLA-enabled, which provides VOD-like ability to store, distribute and publish offline video assets throughout the enterprise for any device on the network, such as: desktops, mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, Android, smart phones), set-top boxes, connected TVs, and media players.

ManyView IQ is compatible with current standards-compliant web browsers, enabling an on-the-go workflow through a web browser. It also has iPad, iPhone, and Android interfaces available.
