Volicon to provide LAN-based video logging for AFN
December 12, 2007
The Defense Media Center (DMC) of the American Forces Network (AFN) has purchased the Volicon Observer desktop monitoring system to log all of the facility's broadcasts. The Observer will be the first broadcast system linked into the DMC's local area network (LAN), which will allow the center to review logging content over its IT infrastructure for the first time.
The DMC's Observer system includes 40 SD-SDI channels for monitoring the outbound transmission integrity of all AFN radio and TV broadcasts. The Observer system will automatically ingest, reference and recall all as-run traffic data and correlate that data against logged media. In addition, Observer will log and proactively alert operators to transmission defects such as loss of audio and video, static or black video and loss of closed captioning.
