By providing a continuous log of broadcast content across more than 100 SKY Perfect channels, the Observer is ensuring that the network maintains compliance with Japanese broadcasting regulations.
SKY Perfect has installed several multichannel Observer systems, including one at its Aomi Broadcasting Center to monitor 76 analog channels and four SD-SDI channels, and another at the broadcaster’s new SKY PerfecTV!
