Volicon Observer Documents Shalini TV Operations

India’s Shalini TV recently integrated a Volicon Observer into its system. The Tamil-language entertainment television channel in Chennai, India, uses the Observer video monitoring and logging system for fast, reliable compliance monitoring and ad verification.

The Volicon Observer captures every second of broadcast content and immediately makes it available for review and clipping via an intuitive browser-based user interface. The device installed at Shalini TV was provided by Volicon reseller Digital Solutions.

Volicon's Observer system continually and automatically captures, stores, and streams on-air feeds, offering multiple simultaneous users around-the-clock access to live and recorded broadcast content from desktop computers or smart devices.

With the Observer's streamlined user interface, authorized users at Shalini TV can access, play, pause, and search recorded content conveniently and with ease. It can also be used to quickly locate, review, extract, and export clips to demonstrate regulatory or contractual compliance.

"Compliance and ad verification are critical elements of broadcast operations, and Shalini TV is among the television channels and networks worldwide that have effectively made the Observer the de facto standard for these applications," said Russell Wise, vice president of global sales at Volicon.
