Snell & Wilcox intros content quality monitoring/control system

Snell & Wilcox has announced Hyperion, a new content monitoring system that uses intuitive algorithms which mimic human intelligence to provide dedicated audio, video, and metadata monitoring for all content throughout the broadcast infrastructure, from ingest to transmission.

Hyperion evaluates the quality and makeup of the video, audio and metadata content within the signal. It automatically provides an “educated opinion” as to whether each element of the program meets satisfactory viewing quality standards.

The new system's genre-based monitoring matches a broadcast program with a pre-configured profile for a particular program type, channel or target audience. Algorithms determine and set what normal looks like for a given content type or channel. If the content does not match up to expected behavior, the system can alert the operator.

Hyperion can detect subtle errors such as whether the content is too dark or too still. It can also intelligently assess critical program elements such as multi-language soundtracks and metadata.

Hyperion is a distributed system that can be used to monitor both main and remote facilities. It complements and integrates with S&W's existing RollCall, RollMap, and RollSNMP broadcast control and monitoring technology. Hyperion functionality is now embedded in all new S&W infrastructure products.
