A breakthrough in intelligent monitoring and control
Posted on Thursday, December 10, 2015

For the first time automated monitoring can not only understand the quality of media, but that it's the right media - enabling true monitoring by exception. 

  • Provides absolute assurance the right pictures are in the right place, at the right time, with the right audio

  • Tracks media across multiple platforms and formats from broadcast, OTT, and online

  • Lightweight and very low cost to deploy a large number of monitoring points

  • End-to-end media assurance from ingest to off-air

Media Match
Within complex, multi-channel broadcast facilities, how do you know you are playing the right content, on the right channel, at the right time? Media Biometrics can track both video and audio media throughout your facility and confirm that the content being delivered is the right Media.

In a typical example, MBG (Media Biometric Generators) are used to generate multiple signature streams at various points in a media workflow. These signatures can either be embedded in the Vertical Ancillary Data (VANC) of an SDI signal or streamed over IP to an instance of Sigma software for comparison in a Media Biometric AP (Assurance Point). If any issues are detected with the media content, a flag can be raised and an operator alerted.

Offering true end-to-end capability, Media Biometrics can offer Media Match capability from content creation to end user delivery.
