Snell & Wilcox and Belgium-based Barco have signed a deal to collaborate on an integrated system that offers multichannel broadcasters an advanced television quality monitoring system.

The agreement includes Snell & Wilcox and Barco's joint cooperation during the sales process through lead sharing, combined bids and project proposals. The two companies have already integrated the Barco Hydra display processor with the Snell & Wilcox RollCall control and monitoring software suite and Hyperion content monitoring system. The system was recently demonstrated at NAB, Broadcast Live, and Broadcast Asia industry shows.

Integrating the complementary systems enables quality control alarm data from the Snell & Wilcox RollCall and Hyperion systems to be displayed on the Barco Hydra monitoring interface. Now people can simultaneously monitor the audio, video, and metadata of a greater range of channels than was previously possible with conventional systems, according to the companies.

"The integration of our RollCall software suite and Hyperion content monitoring system with Barco's versatile display technology brings our shared clients the industry's most advanced monitoring solution for complex broadcast operations," said Joe Zaller, vice president of marketing at Snell & Wilcox. "By bringing together these best-of-breed technologies, we are enabling our joint customers to achieve enormous efficiency gains while at the same time ensuring more trouble-free operations."
