SKY Italia selects Volicon Observer video monitoring solution for compliance, fault detection

May 28, 2008

SKY Italia has implemented a 52-channel Volicon Observer enterprise video monitoring solution for compliance recording and fault detection replacing SKY Italia's previous tape-based system.

Through a Web interface, Observer users across the SKY Italia facility are able to access multiple channels of live and archived content simultaneously from their desktops. Users can log broadcasts as well as search, retrieve, analyze and export video clips with metadata, locally or remotely as required, to demonstrate proof of compliance with broadcasting regulations. The export functionality of the Observer makes it easy for operators to share assets internally.

The system being installed at SKY Italia archives instantly accessible content from 52- channels for up to 90 days via RAID-5 storage hardware, with four spare recording channels at the ready. In addition to compliance recording and archiving, the Observer provides 24/7 monitoring and fault detection to enable SKY Italia to maintain its quality-of-service standards for aired content.
