In its post-Volicon period, compliance monitoring companies vying to fill the void are expanding their offerings; tapping artificial intelligence for automation and cloud-based methods; and building more versatile tools. Above, TAG Video recently received certification to monitor Dolby Atmos.
Broadcasters competing in an increasingly direct-to-consumer world will need to know more about how consumers are experiencing their programming, predicted Brick Eksten, CEO of Qligent. During a Fireside Chat at TV2025: Monetizing the Future, Eksten said TV engineers have long monitored their content up to the point at which it plays out to the viewer. As they build their business in OTT and ATSC 3.0, however, TV executives will join Netflix and other DTC giants in keeping close tabs on how well their content is performing as the consumer engages with it.
In a post-Volicon landscape, broadcasters are scrambling to replace their compliance and monitoring services. They face vastly different regulatory requirements for OTT in doing so, but also an upside of new features including AI, on-prem, cloud or hybrid options and built-in tools for analysis and sales. Above, Mediaproxy’s LogPlayer is a cross-platform HTML5 user interface that facilitates seamless access to media and metadata across a network of global deployed LogServers.
