Telos plans to start charging for one of the features on the Voltair watermark confidence monitor and audio processor.
The company has offered the data export feature free for more than a year. On an Excel spreadsheet, the orange and light-orange shades indicate periods when content showed low encoding confidence levels on Voltair, according to Telos.
Voltair keeps a minute-by-minute history of confidence metrics, both for original and enhancement levels. Stations can use this feature to identify the voices, commercials, and songs that don’t encode well for each minute of programming, according to the company.
Voltair will be on display at the upcoming NAB 2016 at the Telos Alliance Booth #N1934.
