NAB Sneak Peek: Telos Announces Voltair Data Export Feature

Describes PPM encoding successes and failures by the minute

Voltair Data Export spreadsheet — orange and light-orange shades indicate periods when content showed low encoding confidence levels on Voltair.

The Telos Alliance has announced a new feature for its Voltair watermark monitor and processor, a data export feature.

According to a release, the Voltair Data Export Licenses will “help broadcasters obtain a comprehensive minute-by-minute understanding of exactly which programming is not encoding well in PPM.”

It specifies: “Voltair keeps a minute-by-minute history of confidence metrics, both for original and enhancement levels. The Data Export License allows users to export that confidence-level data in a color-coded (green, yellow, orange) Excel spreadsheet for each broadcast day. Programmers can use this feature to identify the voices, commercials and songs that don’t encode well for each minute of programming.”

Geoff Steadman, founder and president of 25-Seven, part of the Telos Alliance, said, “Broadcasters know that not all programming encodes equally well in PPM, and some content encodes downright badly. … While the Voltair unit itself provides a visual display that indicates when content is or isn’t being encoded well, the data that Voltair constantly collects gives a more granular analysis.”
