Volicon to showcase Volicon Observer v 5.0 at IBC2008

At IBC2008 Sept. 12-16 in Amsterdam, Volicon will feature Volicon Observer version 5.0, which offers new features designed for a broader range of monitoring situations, including monitoring and recording of HD content, as well as several new modules.

Observer now lets operators 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 and support of bit rates higher than 3.0Mb/s.

The Content Export module, which enables batch and scheduled exporting, now provides support for exporting closed-captioning data. In addition to email alerts, Observer 5.0 adds the ability to generate alerts, triggered within Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) systems when SNMP traps are detected.

The new Producer module lets broadcasters capture and repurpose content in a variety of industry formats. It provides a platform for browsing aired content recorded by Observer, which can be searched to retrieve a desired video segment down to an individual frame.
