Mediaproxy Debuts Exception-Based Monitoring and Content Matching Workflows at NAB 2019

At the 2019 NAB Show, Mediaproxy, a provider of software-based IP broadcast solutions, will demonstrate an updated version of its LogServer software suite, used for compliance, monitoring and analysis.

The company said it would introduce the concept of exception-based monitoring via IP “penalty boxes” that allow broadcasters and MSOs working at scale to more efficiently handle quality control and compliance.

For network operators managing multiple stations and playout, Mediaproxy has introduced a new live source comparison feature for real-time identification of mismatched content. One or more live sources can be compared based on video content and alert operators immediately when they are not matching.

Support for Newtek NDI and SMPTE 2110 media over IP formats further enhances the options available for compliance recording and monitoring solutions. By capturing NDI and SMPTE 2110 sources including metadata, Mediaproxy LogServer allows broadcasters to ensure full compliance during all stages of IP deployment.

Company CEO, Erik Otto, said that reigning in control over a large number of OTT streams can be daunting, making a unified system for monitoring compliance and identifying issues across all traditional and OTT playouts critical. To ensure that the right content is at the right place at the right time, Mediaproxy LogServer enables operators to log and monitor outgoing ABR streams as well as Transport Stream and OTT stream metadata including SCTE triggers, closed captions, and audio information, all from one place.

“It is the key to surviving the multiformat game of the future,” Otto said.
