U.S. broadcasters are required to keep logs and, in some special cases, self-report to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to prove compliance with FCC rules related to, among many other things, emergency alerting. Organizations failing to do so face increasingly significant fines. That’s why it’s so important for broadcasters to have a solid emergency alerting and compliance protocol in place — one that includes a regular Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) system check-up.
Mediaproxy will demonstrate and explain new monitoring and compliance solutions in its 2018 NAB Show exhibit.
Two types of people visit NAB Show exhibits, engineers and not-engineers. The not-engineers fly into Las Vegas, have some meetings and wander the exhibits for a day or two. Then there are the engineers who visit the show with specific needs, technical questions and approved budgets. These are the visitors you often see in exhibits on Thursday mornings, still asking serious questions.
It seems every year brings more broadcasting activities to log and archive, and more laws and regulations to comply with. The 2018 NAB Show is the only place in the world where all the available new technology to automatically log and comply with TV broadcasting regulations can be seen under one roof.
Television broadcasting has become more complex with the advent of OTT services. Playout is no longer the final point of quality control. CDN edge points, targeted ad-insertion, multi-language support, and event based channels require the expert scrutiny of broadcast engineers.
