Crawford adds Volicon monitoring channels

Atlanta-based Crawford Communications has expanded its broadcast recording and monitoring capabilities with the addition of a 12-channel Volicon Observer video monitoring and logging system. The new system adds additional SD and HD channels to an existing Observer implementation. Now, more Crawford clients have access to the system for verification that their content was broadcast.

For several years, Crawford has been using a four-channel analog Observer system to enable one of its clients to view a downlink of the network's aired broadcast. Additionally, the system validates the integrity and quality of the signal as well as verifies that advertising ran as scheduled. The Observer system has been put into service for another Crawford client, Latin American Pay Television (LAPTV), enabling LAPTV engineers to log onto the Observer from any desktop computer to view a recording of previously aired content.
