Compliance Monitoring Making The News
Digital technology has brought greater flexibility to system design, enabling products designed
for one function to be used for something completely different. As Erik Otto, Chief Executive of
Mediaproxy, explains, compliance systems are now finding a role in newsgathering...

T

he 24-hour news culture is part of
modern life. When CNN went on
air in 1980 as the first all-day, all-news
television channel, how people stayed
up to date with current events changed
forever. Traditional news bulletins at
set times - the Six O'Clock News, News
at Ten - has survived but CNN and the
channels that followed it - Fox News,
MSNBC, BBC News, Sky News - set a
faster agenda with coverage of stories
as they happen.
The pace has only accelerated
since the advent of social media.
News organizations now not only
have to outdo each other by being
first with a story on conventional TV
but also get in as fast as they can on
Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Newsgathering techniques have also
changed dramatically, with reporters
using the cameras on their mobile
phones to produce footage ahead of a
full camera crew arriving on the scene.
The recent events in the US have

shown that news is not always
covered from all angles.
While some broadcasters
had journalists and camera
operators on site, other
reporters used their phones
to bring actuality of what was
happening as it occurred.
All of which shows that TV
news organizations have to
deal with reports coming in
to broadcast centres from a variety of
sources in many different formats.
As ever, this is not anything new.
Broadcasters have been dealing with
incoming feeds over satellite, fiber
and IP circuits for many years. These
have now been joined by Zoom, Skype
and other mobile video call formats.
While viewing audiences are willing to
forgive lower quality signals because
of the immediacy, the sources still
need to be monitored to ensure
that standards are not completely
overlooked.

reviewed if any complaints
were made.
This feature is now being
used as part of the main
news production process,
with editors able to take
clips from incoming feeds to
insert into bulletins. News
agencies are additionally
looking at the potential of
sharing material recorded
on LogServer being shared between
the production teams of bureaus in
different countries. Having as much
footage available instantaneously
over a network will make it easier
to break stories and get on air - be it
social media platforms, a rolling news
channel or a regular bulletin - before
the competition.
In a 24/7 media society, that is a
powerful tool, regardless of whether it
was originally intended for compliance
monitoring or not.

Mediaproxy's Monwall

Mediaproxy works with several
leading news broadcasters and
agencies. Its LogServer monitoring
and analysis system is used to
check compliance of incoming and
distributed signals but increasingly
other functions are being exploited
in the broadcast news environment.
LogServer is also able to record
feeds, which are then logged so they
can be accessed when needed. The
recording function was originally
designed for compliance purposes, so
that programs could be retrieved and

Telestream Announce Next Generation
IQ Ad Insertion Monitoring

elestream, a leading provider
of workflow automation, media
processing, quality monitoring and test
and measurement solutions for the
production and distribution of video,
has announced the next generation of
IQ Video Quality Monitoring Solution
for OTT streaming and Linear TV.
Designed for service providers,
streaming TV providers and direct-toconsumer broadcasters, the solution
now provides comprehensive AdInsertion Monitoring for enhanced

OTT advertising has the potential
to greatly increase revenues for
streaming providers, but it adds
complexity to an already complicated
OTT streaming workflow. When a
problem occurs, diagnosing the issue is
very difficult causing providers to lose
millions in advertising dollars.
The IQ Video Quality Monitoring
solution protects the ad business

model by monitoring and
auditing the ad-insertion
workflow, making sure
ad
opportunities
are
present and without error.
The IQ solution provides
meaningful data, metrics,
and alarms in real time,
