Vela Research announces the addition of a multi-input ASI configuration of its powerful MultiViewer solution for broadcasters, satellite providers, programmers, IPTV and content creators, syndicators and distributors.

Vela’s ArgoNavis solutions are elegant, compact, easy-to-deploy and integrate systems that provide a full set of 608 and 708 Closed Captioning, VANC and metadata capabilities, SDI and ASI interface options, and intuitive user-interfaces allowing local and remote control and convenient integration into operators’ existing workflow.

The ArgoNavis Multi-Viewer CALM Act solution and Content QC system provides a cost-effective solution for call letter stations, Station Groups, satellite distributors, content providers and others to ensure the quality, integrity and regulatory compliance of their programming content. It also provides a full-fledged set of LKFS capabilities, measurements, alerting and logging features to allow operators to comply with the CALM Act.

The Video Recording capability provides a real-time, 1920x1080i resolution, full frame rate H.264 encode of the ArgoNavis system’s output for signal verification and creation of compliance records, The output displays the independent video inputs, as well as the associated audio levels, LKFS values, Closed Captioning and any detected errors or alarms (including black or missing frames, broadcast flag, etc). The logs can be segmented into hourly files to enable operators, compliance officers and management to quickly locate, view, share and distribute content relating to a specific period or duration. These indexed log files can be decoded and viewed in most common clients and video players such as QuickTime and VLC. A detailed specification sheet can be found here.

Vela’s ArgoNavis MultiViewer systems are widely deployed, cost effective and field-proven solutions that have provided significant benefits not just in loudness measurements and CALM Act compliance, but also in ensuring comprehensive video and program integrity, flagging and alerting operators for exception conditions and potential violations, and in creating comprehensive records of content distributed or created for verification and audit trail purposes.
