Volicon adds new features to Observer
Volicon debuted the latest version of its Observer broadcast monitoring and logging system at NAB2006. Observer 3.0 features include closed-caption display, export view for scheduled archiving, support for Front Porch Digital’s archiving systems, and support for import of as-run logs from Harris and Sundance.
The Observer uses closed-captioned information to assist users in searching for specific clips. It also allows users to verify the integrity of the closed-captioning information. In addition, the new version enables users to schedule daily tasks to export specific content in a system-independent file format to be used with third-party applications. Via the new support feature from Front Porch Digital, media can be stored for up to 15 years and beyond and retrieved within minutes. The outdated content is automatically transferred to Front Porch Digital’s deep storage, freeing up online storage for newly acquired content.
