New technologies and integrations will be presented for increased HDR support, end-to-end visibility, automation, control, and quality of service
TAG Video Systems, the leader in software-based IP end-to-end monitoring, deep probing, and real time visualization solutions, has announced that it will be presenting its award-winning Content Matching technology at NAB NY 2023. TAG will also be demonstrating integration with Beamr’s 5 HEVC encoder, and showcasing its comprehensive toolset designed to maximize user’s own data to develop new, or improve, business opportunities. These latest advances provide a quicker, clearer, more complete picture of content health and status, add another layer of confidence for users, and enable content owners and broadcasters to offer a higher-quality viewer experience with full HDR visualization.
Visitors to NAB NY will see TAG’s Content Matching in action driven by its unique fingerprinting mechanism that identifies and detects similar content across two different streams regardless of resolution, bitrate, or framerate, to ensure correct and uninterrupted delivery. This new technology dramatically reduces workflow complexity and eyes-on-glass and enables media companies to deliver quality content with fewer resources and more confidence. Content Matching has been recognized for its excellence and innovation with 2 Best of Show awards and it earned a prestigious BaM award from IABM at IBC 2023.
TAG will also highlight its technical collaboration with Beamr that integrates the Beamr 5 HEVC encoder into TAG’s Realtime Media Performance platform. The solution optimizes the bandwidth required to transport UHD and supports end-to-end High Dynamic Range (HDR) to deliver a stunning viewer experience with full HDR visualization.
In addition, at NAB NY TAG will demonstrate how easily custom dashboards and visualizations can be created to suit each user’s exact requirements. By combining TAG’s Multichannel Monitoring (MCM) system’s deep probing and analysis capabilities with the Company’s MCS data aggregation and management toolset, dashboard visualizations can be easily built with well-known open toolsets like Kibana, Grafana and Kafka to address any level of detail in any media workflow. Representative visualizations for various workflows and applications will showcase the depth and flexibility of displays enabled by the MCS, including application-specific functions such as MPEG-TS and OTT delivery, audio analysis, SCTE Triggers and more.
