Bridge Technologies has launched the VB330V, a virtual counterpart to the VB330 hardware probe for core networks. Like the VB330, the VB330V is for high-traffic monitoring in core networks but the VB330V operates on any standard high-performance server blade.
Regulatory bodies that monitor quality standards require depth of detail from multi-channel playout systems to ensure that the correct video and audio content, including teletext, subtitles, and anything included in television and radio services, air as scheduled and meet established standards.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) displays have arrived in the consumer and professional markets. Anyone in the post-production community who needs to calibrate these systems and certify to vendors and clients that their display systems are compliant with this technology will need a whole new process.
