Metadata Accuracy Is The Goal Of Crystal Solutions @ SATCON

[SatNews] Crystal Solutions will be demo'ing its new Video Metadata Analyzer (VMA) at CCW+Satcon from November 12th through the 13th at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City on booth 322.

Crystal Solutions’ VMA ensures metadata accuracy by capturing and logging video metadata, such as SCTE 104 and SCTE 35 messages, along the transmission path. VMA checks for the presence of metadata, assures it is properly formatted, and presents the analysis and details in human readable format. When issues are detected, the operator is alerted through multiple means. In addition to VMA, Crystal Solutions will demonstrate its range of products and solutions which simplify the operations of complex satellite, video and data networks for broadcasters and media companies, including its Spectrum Monitoring and Recording solution (SMR), Network Managing and Control System (NMS) and its Carrier ID Detection System.
“Metadata in video content will become increasingly important over the coming months and years, with the likelihood that all content providers will insert and validate metadata,” commented Roger Franklin, CEO, Crystal Solutions. “Inserting metadata enables new business and revenue models; the ability to accurately analyze that metadata and recover from errors quickly is crucial to ensuring continued revenue generation.”


While at CCW+Satcon, Roger Franklin, CEO, will participate in a roundtable discussion on deliberate jamming and radio frequency interference on Thursday, November 13th at 10:15 a.m. The discussion will explore new approaches to combating satellite interference.
