Digital Nirvana, a provider of management solutions and services, plans in April to debut Monitor IQ—the latest version of software for MediaPro IQ, DN’s flagship broadcast monitoring product—that provides centralized management, automatic ad detection, a director’s audio track, and an advanced metadata harvester.
Monitor IQ combines the functionality of content recording, content searching, retrieve and repurposing, Web publishing, signal monitoring, air-check logging, archiving, ad verification and tracking and competitive analysis in a scalable networked appliance, DN says.
The latest software includes customer-suggested features such as flexible content archiving, real-time newscast exporting and H.264 video format support, according to Hiren Hindocha, Digital Nirvana’s president and CEO. “Each of the features comes directly from customer input,” Hindocha says. “We’ve listened to what our customers tell us they need in a broadcast monitoring solution and created a tool that’s tailor made to address their requirements.”
Additional features are:
- Loudness monitoring and audio logging capability, including OEM software licensed from Minnetonka Audio Software, Inc.
- Advanced Metadata Harvester which provides the ability to track any data the system logs and collects from alarms or from the broadcast feed.
In addition, all Digital Nirvana solutions are Web enabled, so users can access the software through any standard Web browser without ActiveX component, the company says.
