Volicon announced it will be unveiling Remote Program Manager (RPM) at the Cable-Tec Expo next week. The Volicon RPM is intended to help MSO and cable operators monitor the quality of their broadcasts in central and remote unmanned head-end facilities.
The RPM monitors and records 500 or more video channels for audio and video signal integrity and notifies the operator, by email or SMS alerts, if the signal does not conform to prespecified limits. Monitoring includes detection of low audio levels, frozen video and missing video.
In addition to alert, the RPM records the content in question for later review by the operator. The RPM includes the capability to stream a questionable TV channel over the Internet, allowing an operator to view the video/audio on a standard Windows-based PC.
RPM is deployed in the company’s Observer broadcast monitoring system.
