The Telos Alliance – parent company of 25-Seven, makers of the Voltair Watermark Monitor and Processor – has announced the release of Voltair Data Export Licenses. The company says this new feature will help broadcasters get a comprehensive minute-by-minute understanding of exactly which programming is not encoding well in PPM.
Telos says Voltair keeps a minute-by-minute history of confidence metrics, both for original and enhancement levels. “The Data Export License allows users to export that confidence-level data in a color-coded (green, yellow, orange) Excel spreadsheet for each broadcast day. Programmers can use this feature to identify the voices, commercials, and songs that don’t encode well for each minute of programming.”
25-Seven founder and President Geoff Steadman said, “Broadcasters know that not all programming encodes equally well in PPM, and some content encodes downright badly. While the Voltair unit itself provides a visual display that indicates when content is or isn’t being encoded well, the data that Voltair constantly collects gives a more granular analysis.”
