Volicon releases Observer version 5.0
Volicon has released version 5.0 of the Observer broadcast monitoring and recording solution.
The Observer 5.0 includes a range of new features designed to give operators greater flexibility and broader options in different content monitoring situations.
The Volicon Observer 5.0 enables users to capture, search and retrieve, review, analyze and log video from an unlimited number of live and prerecorded channels from their own desktops.
With Observer 5.0, Volicon is delivering new functionality to support monitoring and recording of HD content. The system now enables operators to obtain closed captions from CEA-708 HD video streams through extraction of EIA-608 closed-caption data. Other new HD features include support for Dolby 5.1 for SDI capture and support of bit rates higher than 3Mb/s to enable capture of high-quality HD video.
