Maroun to Discuss Effective Monitoring Techniques for Quality Assurance
HONG KONG -- June 5, 2012 -- Wohler Technologies today announced that Jhonny Maroun, director, Wohler APAC, will present "MPEG Monitoring: Demystifying the Process" at the BroadcastAsia2012 international conference in Singapore. Maroun's session will be held at 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20.
"With the increased complexity of broadcast networks and transmission chains, today's broadcasters need reliable 24/7 signal monitoring solutions in order to quickly troubleshoot problems and ensure high-quality content is delivered to the viewing audience," said Maroun. "This session will examine how service providers can leverage new MPEG/ASI monitoring techniques to address signal confidence, quality assurance, and compliance requirements."
In his presentation, Maroun will discuss effective implementation of real-time logging and test and measurement solutions for today's multiformat, networked media and file-based broadcast workflows. His session will also explain MPEG monitoring principles and the different methods used in transport stream analysis by examining ETR290 and other MPEG monitoring requirements. Attendees of this session will gain a more thorough understanding of today's confidence monitoring methods and learn how such solutions can be implemented within their own broadcast environments.
With more than 10 years of experience, Maroun is well-positioned to speak on the importance of MPEG monitoring and test and measurement principals within the broadcast environment. In his previous position at Wohler as regional sales manager, Maroun was responsible for building the Wohler brand in the Asia/Pacific region by strengthening long-term relationships with customers and channel partners. Maroun holds a Bachelor of Engineering in mechanical and biomedical from the University of Sydney.
