It is the first compliance logger to combine cloud services and cloud storage with on-premises compliance recording and the first to run in on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments.
“MonitorIQ 6.1 lets today’s broadcasters do more than they ever could before. For example, they can now use cloud-based, AI-driven microservices to add transcription to video assets automatically. They can also search stored video using face detection, logo recognition, and on-screen text detection,” said Russell Wise, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Digital Nirvana. “The integration of MonitorIQ and Media Services Portal opens up a whole new world of AI-enhanced possibilities for broadcasters to record, store, and repurpose content. Through intelligent and immediate logging and feedback of content quality and compliance, broadcasters are better-positioned to meet regulatory, compliance, and licensing requirements for closed captioning, decency, and advertising monitoring.”
The new capabilities in MonitorIQ 6.1 are:
- A reliable, scalable, and expandable architecture that enables on-premises, cloud, or hybrid implementation. MonitorIQ was designed to run locally as a full turnkey solution or in a virtual environment, using local customer hardware or residing in the cloud or in a hybrid configuration. MonitorIQ also provides an extensible list of open APIs for easy integration into broadcast workflows or third-party systems.
- Seamless integration to AI-based cloud microservices that can be spun up very quickly as needed and run on top of the compliance system. Microservices include:
– Automated speech to text for closed-caption generation and transcription.
– Closed-caption/teletext conformance and correction to meet streaming services’ standards (Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, etc.).
– Powerful text and video-intelligence functions for detecting faces, logos, images, and on-screen text.
– Detection of ads in competitive programming and identification of the category of the ad and advertisers.
MonitorIQ 6.1 provides tight integration with Digital Nirvana’s Media Services Portal, a suite of smart self-service tools, which empowers broadcasters to apply AI capabilities to broadcast workflows. These microservices include speech-to-text for automated closed-caption generation, quality assessment for postproduction closed captioning, and transcription of recorded assets. A video intelligence engine provides logo, face, and object recognition.
