Volicon’s Observer video monitoring and logging system now features integrated real-time loudness monitoring that simplifies compliance with new and emerging standards. Intuitive overlay controls within the Observer’s Web-based interface now give operators continuous visual feedback on loudness measurements. The system’s recording, logging, and playout functions allow operators to review noncompliant content and immediately troubleshoot loudness issues.

The Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) Act in the United States and new guidelines released by groups including the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and Italy’s AGCOM are making loudness monitoring a necessary part of broadcast operations.

Observer provides a constant on-screen indication of both program loudness and true-peak signal levels. Operators have instant access to the conflicting area of the broadcast and are able immediately to view measurements, troubleshoot loudness according to an acceptable range, and use logged video and audio evidence for playout, export, DVD delivery, or archiving for later use.
