TAG's booth will be based around its existing and emerging technologies that provide greater insight into signal health and integrity,
CABSAT Visitors to TAG’s stand will get a sneak peek at Content Matching, the company’s newest technology. This mechanism detects similar content across two different streams to ensure correct and uninterrupted delivery to the intended destination. It is accomplished by creating a unique fingerprint for each video frame and audio envelope and matching them across the entire media distribution path against a user-defined reference point. 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 can identify and correlate audio and video uniqueness accurately, regardless of resolution, bitrate or framerate, thus enabling a match between any two or more points in the workflow. Even after the content has been processed and manipulated, TAG can identify the match and confirm that the content is identical, correct and behaving as expected
The new technology reaches the root cause of problems faster and troubleshoots more efficiently, even in complex, elaborate workflows. Based on a sophisticated real-time frame-to-frame correlation engine, the user is notified when the first mismatch occurs, and combined with TAG’s rich probing and monitoring, they can easily identify and resolve the source of the errors. The ability to identify, match and correlate content to content anywhere in the workflow empowers users to measure a wide variety of parameters, make comparisons and quickly identify issues.
TAG will also be highlighting its partnership with Nevion and integration with VideoIPath and Virtuoso toolsets.
“Combined with our flagship software-only monitoring and visualisation platform, Cntent Matching is a powerful tool. The technology adds yet another layer of monitoring to TAG’s robust MCM, a system that manages alarms and alerts operators of 500+ user-defined event thresholds,” commented Micky Edwards, Director of Sales – EMEA at TAG Video Systems.
