TEL-AVIV, Israel, Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Actus Digital, a developer of web-based broadcast monitoring platforms for content analysis, media monitoring and cross-platform content repurposing, announced today that Globecast has installed the Actus Platform monitoring solution in its media centres.
Globecast provides media management and distribution services for leading broadcasters and operates three media centres strategically located in Singapore, London and Los Angeles.
The new implementation will enable Globecast to provide compliance and content quality monitoring to its broadcast clients, including BBC Worldwide. To support this, the Actus system stores and provides access to channel content in native format from the transport stream (TS) feed, which additionally provides engineering personnel with metadata and other information for diagnostic purposes.
Alongside this, Actus has also announced a new Change Tracker software module that extends this capability even further by comparing outgoing and off-air feeds and flagging significant differences according to user-defined rules. These combined functionalities allow regionalised versions of the content to be monitored from multiple sites, ensuring that clients' brand values are retained wherever they are viewed.
'The Actus system has allowed us to offer our clients immediate, direct access to their compliance recordings, and the clients' reaction has been extremely positive. Actus has supported the system well and are quick to react to our needs', said Jamie Renouf, systems engineer at Globecast. 'We were happy with the assurance that our requirements would be met and that Actus' product is constantly developing to answer the growing requirements of our customers'.
Actus CEO Sima Levy added, 'Actus was selected following a demanding technical evaluation, and we are honoured that a top-tier customer such as Globecast is satisfied with the decision'.
