French international channel TV5 Monde is using Volicon’s Observer TS monitoring and logging system to deliver compliance logging as the channel migrates to an HD technical infrastructure.
The Observer system is delivering logging of 11 existing services. Observer TS enables continuous logging of MPEG transport streams, monitoring of programme Quality of Experience, and the export and streaming of MPEG TS or low-resolution proxies across the enterprise or WAN.
According to Volicon, the Observer system at TV Monde allows the broadcaster to automate extraction of content for tagged events such as a loss-of-service alert from a satellite downlink probe.
“The Volicon Observer TS system not only addresses the full range of services related to logging, but also gives us a complete solution that doesn’t require any adaptation on our part,” said Mallory Delaporte-Bernues, system engineer at TV5 Monde. “The Observer is an all-in-one solution that simplifies operations while helping us to enhance the value of our staff. On-duty monitoring personnel enjoy convenient remote access, with a clear and near-instantaneous view of any monitored channel. Both technical and non-technical staff can work confidently with logs, thanks to the ease with which they can access content and data. I really count on those capabilities to improve the quality of our deliveries.
