Volicon has announced their loudness monitoring and logging solution is now available on the Observer Scout platform. This solution is targeted at broadcasters, networks, and cable, satellite, and IPTV operators wishing to comply with broadcast loudness legislation and demonstrate an unambiguous proof of conformance in a simple, efficient, automated, and cost-effective manner.
Unlike traditional stand alone meters, Observer Scout offers 24x7 continuous monitoring of all channels to ensure loudness measurements are captured and made available on-demand and after the fact — which is especially useful for troubleshooting and fault isolation of specific complaints.
"By adding the necessary interfaces and a loudness monitoring and logging module into the affordable Observer Scout platform, Volicon has brought to the market the ultimate in loudness monitoring, compliance, and troubleshooting, all for the price of a standalone loudness meter - but with a whole lot more functionality." said Gary Learner, chief technical officer, Volicon.
The Volicon Observer Scout with loudness monitoring is a powerful solution that enables compliance with BS-1770-2, EBU R128, and ATSC A/85 recommended practices. With Observer Scout, operators now have an incomparable loudness management tool that offers frame accurate loudness measurements, historical LAN/WAN accessible A/V record, exportable burned in A/V compliance affidavit, as well as alarming, graphing, and selectable gating. Observer Scout redefines loudness monitoring by combining it with a compliance logger for a single economical solution.
