Mediaproxy‘s robust and versatile platform has evolved to provide an extensive set of features that meet the demands of executives and engineers today. Compliant with local regulations and providing applications across various departments, LogServer offers the most reliable tools available.
Mediaproxy produces technology that plays a major role in ensuring material leaving playout systems meets technical compliance standards. Platforms such as LogServer are also able to analyse and correct any problems or faults in the distribution chain. To perform these tasks more quickly and efficiently, Mediaproxy added exception-based monitoring to LogServer’s feature set. This uses IP penalty boxes that allow broadcasters and MSOs (multiple system operators) working at scale to deal with QC and compliance more efficiently.
Interactivity is also a major consideration for broadcasters and service providers, particularly because social media is how many people access video today. Outlets such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube have different, specific requirements for how material is prepared and Mediaproxy has incorporated dedicated tools for this into LogServer. These include features for cropping the image and altering the aspect ratio to make it better suited to mobile devices, in addition to the capability for inserting ad bumpers.
Among other features for LogServer, that address the needs of network operators running multiple stations and playout streams, is a live source comparison tool. This identifies mismatched content in real-time and is able to compare one or more live sources using video material. An alert is sent to operators immediately if irregularities are detected.
LogServer supports SMPTE ST 2110 media over IP formats and Newtek’s NDI (Network Device Interface) technology. By working with both of these sources, the software’s compliance recording and monitoring options are enhanced, ensuring complete adherence to standards at all points along the IP chain.
