Telescript's two-part monitors are the
perfect fit for robotic systems...

S

o how did Telescript become the only
manufacturer to deliver monitors and
systems made specifically for robotic pan and
tilt heads?
"It really just fell into our lap," said Chris
O'Brien, Managing Partner at Telescript
International. "When meeting with a leading
manufacturer of robotic systems at their
United States headquarters, Telescript was
challenged with the task to figure out a way
to lower the overall weight of the teleprompter
unit for robotic systems. Well, we didn't have
many options to make improvements, so
the monitor was honestly the best bet. We
immediately went to work with the internal
team and our external suppliers," said Chris.
"Fortunately for us, the idea to split the
monitor into two pieces, moving
the electronics to the back end and
leaving only the display itself on
the front came up pretty quickly,"
said Jim Murphy, Director of Product

Development and Customer Support,
Specialist. "We immediately began to work
on how to make this happen and we had a
plan in place in less than a day," added Jim.
"We had to make a custom cable which could
carry 12 Volt DC power, VGA, HDMI, SDI and
analogue signals, which we call an umbilical
cord. Using this method, we were able to
send the needed signals from the back part
of our monitor to the front. And, in just a few
hours we were well on our way to becoming
the only teleprompter manufacturer to have

this one-of-a-kind monitor."
"We also had to make a specialised, but still
easy-to-use mounting system," said Robert
Helder, Director of Manufacturing and
First-Class Machinist, a 40-year veteran
of the company, "and this is where the
strength of Telescript is unmatched. It's
the flexibility to be able to design and build
hardware in-house at our machine shop that
allows Telescript to rapidly deliver unique
designs."
Using these key advantages allowed
Telescript to deliver the only two-part
monitor and two-part robotic system in
the industry.
Where the system really
excels is in the fact that it more
evenly distributes the monitor
weight across the robotic head. It
means that less weight is on the front
of the robotic system and by moving some
of the monitor weight to the back, it means
that the use of counterweights is greatly
diminished. By answering the call to lower
overall system weight, Telescript became the

only company to offer two-part monitors.
As the popularity of the system has grown,
so has its international presence. These units
are now found all over the world and with
the continued popularity of robotic camera
systems, Telescript's unique design is sure to
continue to be in demand.

Next-Generation Content Detection
and Monitoring Using AI
Machine Learning tools have finally found
their way into the broadcast space...

W

hilst the original concepts have been
around since mid-last century, recent
advances in hardware technologies (GPU and
CPU) and software algorithms have reached
a tipping point to give birth to a wide range
of tools.
Leaving security markets aside, applications
in media and entertainment are perfectly
suited to such tools to automate workflows
from post-production to asset management
and transmission. Unlike security applications
where content variations are high and
potentially unknown, apart from some
deviations during live broadcast, playedout material is pre- produced and hence
a well-known commodity. This opens up
opportunities for optimising detection and
analysis of contents within content to gain
business intelligence, generate events and
reports to monetise the technology.
One example is when incorrect content
or advertising may result in a significant

loss of revenue, reputation, or incur penalties
from the respective authorities. Utilising
logging systems, that contain months or
even years of recorded media on disk, can
provide an automated or ad-hoc look-up
to identify content in question, analyse
and distribute it immediately. This includes
individual object detection and extends to
identifying station logos and branding during
normal programming. Other examples are
product placements during live shows,
sporting arenas and outside broadcasts.
Branding can easily be detected for reporting
