Quincy Media Installs Mediaproxy LogServer
Mediaproxy, a provider of software-based IP broadcast solutions, said that Quincy Media is to implement the LogServer compliance logging and off-air monitoring platform as part of a major overhaul of its monitoring and compliance operations.
Quincy Media is based in Quincy, Ill., where it was established in the late 19th century as a publisher of local newspapers. Quincy Newspapers Inc. (QNI) moved into the broadcasting market in 1947 when it opened Quincy’s first commercial FM radio station. During the 1970s QNI expanded by buying TV stations and continued to build its portfolio into the 21st century. Quincy Media, as QNI became in 2016, now owns TV stations in Arizona, Missouri, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, New York, Virginia and Wisconsin, as well as two newspapers and two radio services.
Mediaproxy technology is to be installed at all Quincy Media TV stations and will be used to log and monitor 138 off-air services in addition to OTT streams. The broadcaster has bought LogServer TSoIP (Transport Stream over IP), OTT Logging and Monitoring and TS Monitoring/Analysis systems, which will be deployed and supported by its principal technical partner, NFB Consulting.
Commenting on the decision to invest in Mediaproxy, Brendan Ford, Quincy Media’s director of control room operations, said: “Compliance and confirmation of our output is very important for TV stations and we were looking for an advanced technology that would provide an efficient, complete, and easy to use way of checking all of our signals from one interface.
“After an extensive period of evaluation, we have partnered with Mediaproxy for our next generation of 24/7 compliance and monitoring across the Quincy stations. We are very much looking forward to working with Mediapoxy now and into the future.”
