Actus Digital to reveal enhancements to intelligent monitoring platform at NAB
Actus Digital is set to unveil new features for its AI-based intelligent monitoring platform at NAB 2022. The new Actus 8.0 platform includes Actus Synchro, an enhanced recording-multiviewer with QA monitoring and compliance logging, along with support for new standards, such as ATSC 3.0, SMPTE ST 2110/2022-6/2022-7 and SRT, to address applications for TV, radio, MVPDs and more.
New features in Actus 8.0 include Actus RVM (Remote Video Monitoring), which allows MVPDs to dial into set-top box channels at geographically dispersed headends and hub sites to troubleshoot issues in real time and verify if local ads were inserted and timed correctly, all from a single interface.
Radio broadcasters will benefit from monitoring and alerting dashboards that enable the monitoring and control of thousands of distributed radio stations through a single interface. Ad sales teams can maximise PPM and revenue by using Actus AdWatch to generate lead lists, perform competitive ad analysis, and improve sales pitches to prospective advertisers by providing demographic ratings.
In addition, Actus Clip Factory Pro empowers digital media teams to perform quick manual or automated clip editing, social-media publishing and VOD content creation, while Actus Light-MAM increases the value of media archives, allowing users to create and enrich metadata via automated metadata extraction. With AI-based metadata generation, users can create a metadata-rich asset library from scratch and/or integrate with existing MAM systems.
“Actus has once again raised the bar for quality monitoring and compliance logging with the new Actus 8.0 platform,” said Raphi Renous, chief technology officer at Actus. “Broadcasters will be wowed by the inclusion of Actus Synchro, an advanced customisable multiviewer that pinpoints issues from anywhere in a linear broadcast distribution chain to any rendition of an OTT stream.”
