Defense Media Center to monitor broadcasts with Volicon Observer

The Defense Media Center (DMC) of the American Forces Network (AFN) has purchased the Volicon Observer desktop monitoring system to log and monitor all of the facility's broadcasts.

Observer will be the first broadcast system linked into the DMC's local area network (LAN) and will allow the center to review logging content over its IT infrastructure for the first time.

Operated by the Department of Defense (DoD), the DMC in Riverside, CA, manages the AFN Broadcast Center (AFN-BC), which provides stateside radio and television programming to about 800,000 U.S. service men and women as well as DoD civilians and their families serving outside the United States.

The DMC's Observer system includes 40 SD-SDI channels for monitoring the outbound transmission integrity of all AFN radio and television broadcasts. The Observer system will automatically ingest, reference and recall all as-run traffic data and correlate that data against logged media. In addition, it will log and proactively alert operators to transmission defects, such as loss of audio and video, static or black video, and loss of closed captions.
