TV Monitoring and Program Evaluation

With the XBL-Broadcast Logger System, TV and radio stations can be recorded, called up and analyzed via network or the internet. In addition to video and audio tracks, the system also stores metadata such as EPG, subtitles, speech-recognition texts, as-run logs, bookmarks, and TV quotas. With just a few clicks of the mouse, the entries can be called up through key words, the calendar, or turbo fast-forward or rewind and then directly played back, edited, commented, and stored as clips.

In the multiscreen mode, a number of TV stations can simultaneously either be shown live or played back. In combination with TV quota displays, the effectiveness of ads and commentaries in the context of parallel-running programs can be analyzed.

Selectable number of channels and duration of storage

Depending on the number of channels, quality, and memory capacity, broadcasts can be stored for months or even years. At the same time, the system can record on ring storage in the 24/7 mode or through the timer. Video and audio quality can be set individually – the system also masters HD and contains signal inputs such as DVB-S, C, T, ASI, analog, SDI, RGB, FM/AM and IP for recording streams (WMV and H.264).

TV video analysis in combination with TV quotas

For video analysis, several TV channels can be arrayed on the multiscreen desktop for live display as well as for simultaneous playback. As an option, time-shifted TV quotas can be displayed beneath the player. During playback, the TV quotas are then displayed in sync. Through long-term recording, analyses are possible for the entire recording time. This facilitates the analysis of the effectiveness of commercials and programs and enables direct knowledge of the contents of other channels at that specific time.

Applicable from anywhere

For editors, the logger system is a powerful instrument for analyzing broadcasts via LAN/ WAN/ Internet. Through multibit streaming, the user can utilize the logger system even when only limited bandwidth is available.

User-friendly interface

The logger system is based on Windows Silverlight. This modern interface enables ingenious user-friendly, interactive operation with an impressive design, including user-defined interfaces, and supports all common browsers with Silverlight plug-ins for Windows PCs or Macs.
