Snell & Wilcox, Barco collaborate on content monitoring solution

Snell & Wilcox and Barco have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on an integrated system that offers multichannel broadcasters an advanced television-quality monitoring solution.

As part of the agreement, Snell & Wilcox and Barco will cooperate during the sales process through lead sharing, combined bids and joint project proposals. The two companies have already completed the integration of the Barco Hydra display processor with the Snell & Wilcox RollCall control and monitoring software suite and the Hyperion content monitoring system.

The integration of the complementary Snell & Wilcox and Barco systems enables quality-control alarm data from the Snell & Wilcox RollCall and Hyperion systems to be displayed on the Barco Hydra monitoring interface, allowing simultaneous monitoring of audio, video and metadata of a far greater range of channels than previously possible.
