Digital Nirvana 2018 Year End Recap
With the pace of change in data monitoring and management quickening this year, thanks to the developments in AI, cloud-based technology, and voice and object recognition, companies providing hardware and software for services such as online and broadcast media monitoring, metadata generation, and closed captioning, experienced the same uptick. Digital Nirvana, a global provider of media management solutions and services experienced a 2018 filled with new product introductions, participation in broadcast technology and media industry trade shows, and a significant strategic alliance with the only television and clearing house in the UK.
In April this year, Digital Nirvana joined forces with Clearcast, UK’s sole television ad clearing house and will be their partner for subtitling TV advertisements. Digital Nirvana’s cloud-based Subtitling Solutions is a featured tool within MediaCentral, Clearcast’s online portal for the video advertising industry. With this portal, advertisers can easily determine if their ads follow UK compliance regulations. Clearcast’s MediaCentral is a task-based portal through which advertisers and agencies can quickly connect with providers who offer ad-related services, such as subtitling, airtime booking, soundtrack services, etc.

April also saw a significant product introduction from Digital Nirvana during the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) convention in Las Vegas. Digital Nirvana introduced a software application, Metadator, that automatically exports media from AVID, sends the data over the cloud for automatic speech-to-text conversion and ingests the metadata with locators back into the AVID Interplay, creating a searchable database within the AVID MAM infrastructure. Automating the manual process of combing through footage and creating scene summaries, Metadator simplifies the editing process for broadcasters and content owners.

NAB 2018 was also the site of the introduction of Digital Nirvana’s Version 5.2 of its flagship MonitorIQ Media Management Platform. The company’s innovative broadcast monitoring and logging system enables broadcasters to effectively monitor their video and meet compliance and repurposing requirements and offers a multitude of user-friendly features. Monitor IQ comes as either a hardware, VM (virtual machine) or a Cloud-based application.
Digital Nirvana also showcased its products and services at the International Broadcasters Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam in September, which were first exhibited in the U.S. at NAB, to the European and worldwide market:
