Qligent Launching All-In-One Monitoring Solution At 2020 NAB Show

Qligent amplifies its value proposition for broadcast compliance monitoring with a new all-in-one solution that addresses regulatory requirements and core quality-oriented proficiencies.

Qligent will debut and demonstrate its Vision Compliance Monitoring system at the 2020 NAB Show. The new system unlocks a centralized portal to monitor the three monitoring pillars: Quality of Service (QoS), Quality of Experience (QoE), and regulatory compliance.

The new system includes two core Qligent competencies that are rarely offered in compliance monitoring systems: QoS and QoE monitoring. Quality monitoring allows stations to cost-efficiently monitor their own QoS-related transport and physical streams along with QoE-related issues such as black, freeze, compression, no audio, no video, and no signal. QoE is ATSC A/78 and A/85 compliant.

Qligent has long offered an enterprise-level Vision solution for large TV networks and distributed service entities, covering an array of monitoring and analysis requirements across many locations. Qligent’s new All-In-One Compliance Monitoring system is tailored for local TV stations and smaller broadcast groups with the same requirements and responsibilities, including loudness and closed caption monitoring, at a more affordable scale.

Local TV Sales Tool

The system also allows broadcasters to record and monitor live program streams from other in-market TV stations. These powerful capabilities will give broadcasters consistent insight into competitive QoE performance, as well as clear evidence of what local businesses are advertising with those stations.

Qligent supplies all software, common off-the-shelf hardware, and QoS/QoE/compliance tool sets as an instantly deployable system, which removes the cost and integration burden of expensive, proprietary compliance systems. The flexible pricing structure offers monthly or annual fees.

“We have at once reduced the expense and simplified the integration and deployment for local stations, requiring only a LAN or WAN connection, a minimal amount of rack space, and RF antenna feeds from the broadcaster and their competitive in-market stations,” said John Shoemaker, Director of Sales, Qligent. “Once connected, Qligent will quickly complete setup through remote access, and immediately provide TV stations with 24/7 comprehensive monitoring to meet their own quality standards and all regulatory requirements – all at an unparalleled cost-to-feature ratio.”

Shoemaker anticipates future upgrades to ensure ATSC 3.0 compatibility as TV broadcasters transition to Next Gen TV.
