Vela Multiviewer, Monitoring and Compliance Logging Systems

Simplifies the process of monitoring, verifying, and logging critical aspects of delivered content in real time by providing critical information on video, audio, and ancillary data necessary to ensure regulatory compliance and data integrity.

Overview:

The Vela ArgoNavis line of Multi-Viewer & Monitoring systems are designed to simplify the process of monitoring, verifying, and logging critical aspects of delivered content in real time. Providing critical information on video, audio, and ancillary data necessary to ensure regulatory compliance and data integrity. The Vela Multi-Viewer & Monitoring system allows operators to monitor video programs within a Multi Program Transport Stream or separate Single Program Transport Streams in real time.

Up to twelve channels of audio in up to two audio programs can be monitored per video channel with live, real time amplitude and LKFS loudness measurements provided for each video source for confidence monitoring and CALM Act compliance. LKFS measurements are date and time stamped and logged up to every 500 msecs for proof of compliance. Decode, monitor, and log various types of MPEG data including PSIP data, and 608 and 708 closed captions in real time for quality assurance and compliance. Easily create and edit video log files for compliance and advertising verification.

Product Features

Real Time Viewing
Real time viewing of hundreds of video programs with twelve channels of audio per stream.
Monitoring
Configure thresholds for audio amplitude levels, audio LKFS values, closed captioning, MPEG data, black frames, and freeze frames, and Monitor PSIP data.
Automatic Alerts
Automatically send email alerts to operators, engineers, and managers when monitored parameters exceed thresholds. Automatically take a ‘snapshot’ image of the video, audio, MPEG, and other monitored parameters on an alarm or alert.
Searchable Database
Easily searchable database to recall alerts, alarms, Closed Captioning text, and Loudness measurements.
Video As Run Files
Easily create and edit video log files for compliance and advertising verification.
Alarms Logging
Create a daily log of the pass/fail state of all monitored parameters with all events date and time stamped.
LKFS Logging
Log date and time stamped instantaneous and average LKFS measurements every 500 msecs. Logs are organized by date allowing for easy retrieval of data when necessary. Plenty of storage, with enough room for years of compliance logs.
Closed Captioning Logging
Log date and time stamped decoded 608, 608 embedded, and 708 Closed Captioning for proof of compliance and record keeping. As in all other logs, the Closed Captioning logs are organized by date for quick and easy retrieval of data when necessary.
Graphs
Easily graph LKFS values using the exported log file CSV format in the spreadsheet application of your choice. Insert upper limits to quickly and efficiently demonstrate compliance in a graphical format.
Compliance
Provide proof of Closed Captioning, LKFS, and PSIP compliance using log files, graphs, and snapshot tools provided by the Vela monitoring system.
Integration
Connect to and administer on a network with an easily integrated and managed Windows 7 Professional based platform. Easily configure email settings and transfer files to other work stations or NAS. Field upgradable.
