Telecom uses ViDeus for clipping and catch up of its programms

Telecom uses ViDeus for clipping and catch-up of its programs

System to record 50 Transport Stream signals

  • TRANSPORT STREAM RECORD
  • LDAP INTEGRATION
  • REPORTV XMLS FILES INTEGRATION
  • MAM INTEGRATION
  • 10GB IGMPV3 NETWORKING

Customer initially added a system to record 10 Transport Stream signals to be able to extract the complete programs without advertisement and then send them with the same Transport Stream format to be ingested in their Video On Demand system.

Later they expanded the solution to 50 HD signals with a Main Backup system. We made the integration to be able to read and make a parsing of the programming grid (ReporTV) that is read from an FTP, where every day 3 XML files related to the planinfication of the programming grid are taken. With this information the system enables teh mark in and out of programs with an automatic clipping, as well as the possibility to enrich the content with metadata asociated to the program, adding information of the program name, cast, director, gender, category, and more.

Some numbers of the project

  • 50 signals
  • 500 Mbits
  • 10 users

Integration with MAM

Clipped programs from ViDeus system are automatically exported to the MAM, with their associated XML, their JPG cover, and the files for subtitling in case that the signal has them. Then the MAM follows the flux in order that the content be available in the OTT platform.

Recording and registering meetings using clipping and speech to text tools from 3Way Solutions

Recording and register of meetings using clipping and speech to text tools from 3Way Solutions

Nowadays there is a need both in public and private companies environments: to be able to record a meeting and after that achieve in an automatic form a text file with all that was spoken in it.  

Clipping, Logging, and Speech to Text technologies from 3Way Solutions allow to easily record a meeting, and make a transcription of what was spoken in it to a digital file, which can be reproduced as a text over the stored video and also be available as a text file to be viewed with a computer, or print it.  This is particularly useful for applications such as trials, to have a copy of the instance, both as video or as a text file or printed.

It can also be used in events such as meetings of congress or executive government meetings, or also in corporate meetings in the private sector, and after that send a copy to each participant of the meeting so they can make a review of what was spoken and have either the over printed text in the video or if they prefer a text file that can also be printed, for ease of use. The solution Clipping allows to clip only a part of the meeting to send the video with the text over printed and the auxiliary file to be viewed separately, or print it.

Systems designed by 3Way Solutions of Clipping and Logging allow to store very easily months of video and audio with different qualities of video and audio according to the needs, and also allow the possibility to make the meeting images available at several locations virtually, in such a way that they can be viewed in distant locations from the site where the meeting is taking place.  Among other advantages, they provide the following:

  • Record in H264/HEVC High Profile
  • Record native in XDCAM YUV422P 50 or 100Mbps
  • Remote operation 100% from web interface with preview
  • View of video in file or live in local or remote screen
  • Record 24/7 manual or by schedule
  • Continued record, without cuts, without phase difference
  • Multiple formats: AVI, TS, MP4, MOV, MXF, XDCAM, DV, XAVC, HEVC, SRT
  • Live clip making while recording
  • Audio only export
  • Generation of information associated to video (metadata)
  • Proxy copy for bandwidth optimization
  • Export to external repositories FTP, Windows folder
  • Direct export to playout systems in XDCAM
  • No user licence limitation
  • Generation of proxy copy, for bandwidth optimization in the network
  • Set Box remotization automatically by controls IR, RS 232 or by Ethernet, depending on the case
  • Over print of watermark for video extractions

When combined with the option Speech to Text of 3Way Solutions, the solution allows to convert the audio from the conversation that is happening into a text file, which can be over printed in the video, and also be ready as a text file that later can be opened with a computer or print it.   

The most important characteristics of the option Speech to Text are the following:

  • Automatic index of audio for both radio and television
  • Word and predefined names search over the current audio visual content
  • Intelligent search by phrases
  • Processing over time intervals
  • Configurable alerts
  • Configurable transcription workflows 
  • Many supported languages
  • Integration with API Google for non supported languages

In brief, the combination of these two solutions solves a point need to get a written register of meetings in justice trials, legislative or executive public or private environments, and allows to make a simultaneous visualization of the event in remote form, and have a copy of it with written text of all dialogues that occured in it.

3Way solutions redefines the concept of multiviewers

3Way Solutions redefines the concept of multiviewers

The concept of multiviewer traditionally brings us to think on a system capable to make a display many TV signals on a screen, and eventually make a monitoring of the audio level and place the name of the signal sources (UMD, Under Monitor Display). This is a concept that is out of date, thanks to the technology of 3Way Solutions, which widens in a great form the range of applications of multiviewers, managing to attend much more applications than what could be achieved before with multiviewers.  Following is a detailed description of the technical requisites desirables as standard for a multiviewer, and also a series of new functionalities that power up its capability to bring solution to several problems that are faced in broadcast applications. 

In order to make a clearer understanding of the functionalities expected for a multiviewer, we divide them in 3 groups.

Current standard functionalities for a multiviewer 

● Flexibility in formats for input signals. They must handle analog and digital video signals, SDI SD, HD, 4K, Transport Stream, ASI

● Flexibility for the signals configuration on screen. They must offer the capability to make available a flexible design of configurations, as well as memories of different configurations, which can be called in different productions.

● Present UMD of the signal sources for each image.

● Audio monitoring

● Alarm generation with sound

Functionalities that improve the performance of a multiviewer

● Capability to monitor different parameters of every incoming signal, with storage of event alarms.

● Audio monitoring with vu meters

● Capability to monitor loudness EBU-128

● Alarms for QoE QoS with standards like TR 101-290

● Streaming signal inputs via network with OTT (HLS, MPEG-DASH, RTMP) SRT

● Delivery of alarms by SNMP and/or email.

Functionalities that will increase even more the features, and widen the range of applications of a multiviewer

● Storage of incoming signals for later auditing

● Resend of the multiviewer screen to other destinations via stream IP

● Operation and monitoring 100% web to obtain a remote monitoring center operable from other sites

3Way technology allows to cover the 3 groups of functionalities, simplifying the installations of production centers of television and radio, with an integration focus much higher than what was known up to now.
