At Match TV, we have completed a large-scale project to modernize the TV Monitoring police recording system. As a result, the number of channels recorded by the system was increased to 44. Currently, 18 SDI HD channels, 12 IP cameras and 14 streams of screenshots are being recorded. Recordings of video, audio, and accompanying data-SCTE-104 tags and volume levels of federal and thematic channels are stored on disk storage with instant access, with a storage period of up to 180 days.
It was decided to record screenshots using hardware, which allowed minimizing the impact on the performance of control workstations in the on-air equipment.
Currently, in the pilot operation mode, Match TV employees use the capabilities of the Smart Air and Smart Air Web client applications. With the help of HTS Smart Air, it is possible to efficiently and quickly analyze the past broadcast day, and identify deviations from the planned schedule. At the request of the Match TV technical service, the functionality of semi-automatic unloading of media files is implemented, which are intended for submitting mandatory copies of programs to the GTRF. Due to the high degree of integration with on-air automation, the user only needs to select the desired program, and the system will download it automatically in the required format with accompanying metadata.
According to statistics, within the Match TV channel, the system is simultaneously used by more than 50 users from various departments: technical specialists, program management, planning services and marketing specialists. The entire amount of information that is recorded in the TV Monitoring system is available through client applications with convenient data visualization for each group of users, depending on the tasks they solve.
As a result of the work carried out, it was possible not only to expand the system functionally, but also to redistribute the load on the complex as a whole, which significantly increased the response speed of client applications and the reliability of the system as a whole.
