This listing is for SPOTCHECK-1000-ASI Monitor only. Use description below as a general reference.

SpotCheck® provides easy to use, no-guesswork, automatic A/85 loudness measurement and access to all audio loudness records. Because SpotCheck® monitors an IP, ASI, or a transmitted over-the-air MPEG stream at the transmit (emission) encode point, SpotCheck® measures and logs loudness for all programming emanating from the facility.

Segments can be searched using date – time with the intuitive display of loudness plots along with date-time-stamped thumbnails of the actual corresponding programming, or can be queried and correlated with the facility as-run automation list. SpotCheck® readily pinpoints any segments that are out of CALM A/85 compliance, and conversely helps in documenting compliance should an erroneous complaint appear.

Options allow even more transport stream/programming analysis. Option QUALITYCHECK checks for the presence of CEA708/608 closed-captioning, as well as the string content text, and also can detect transport communication errors as well as frozen/black frame and audio silence, with Alert Manager sending these alerts to your designated personnel as simple e-mails. Option AIRCHECK provides easily managed lo-res proxy downloads of user-selected transport stream segments that can be sent and viewed over e-mail to recipients with common smart devices and media players.

Easy to use web user interface provides for easy setup and use. Requiring no breakout from the MPEG stream and not affecting the emission stream in any way, SpotCheck® provides an easily integrated, facility-based, superior solution for loudness records and compliance verification.

Features

  • Automated 24/7 loudness measurement and logging for every programming segment sent as emission. Full CALM-compliant measurement, logging, and record access (including latest ITU 1770-3 gated measurement).
  • Easy data search by Date/Time Range and as-run data allows rapid and no-hassle pinpointing to any programming segment
  • Support for sending loudness alert e-mails to multiple personnel. User-defined multiple-level severity escalation.
  • Straightforward display of actual loudness plot and clear OK/non-compliant tagging of programming segments – no tedious lists or spreadsheets to analyze
  • Full compatibility with MPTS and SPTS streams
  • HTML5 web-based user interface can be accessed by any computer on your facility LAN — or anywhere with web connectivity
  • Direct GigE MPEG, ASI, or OTA interface. No complicated external breakout of signals.  
  • Automatically accounts for program loudness, dialnorm, and DRC effect on audio – no interpretation of readings or loudness metadata needed
  • Option QUALITYCHECK checks for the presence of CEA708/608 closed-captioning, as well as the string content text, and also can detect transport communication errors as well as frozen/black frame and audio silence
  • Option AIRCHECK provides easily managed lo-res proxy downloads of user-selected transport stream segments that can be sent and viewed over e-mail to recipients with common smart devices and media players
  • Three year warranty with extension options available
  • Robust product support – upgrades and enhancements field-installed via firmware upload from our Support web page
  • Cobalt Support Network feature provides, where desired, a direct VPN connection between your SpotCheck unit and our engineering support
