At IBC2009 Sept. 10-15 in Amsterdam, Volicon will introduce the Reconciliation Report Module for its Observer video monitoring and loggingdevice.
The new module is a discrepancy reporting tool that reconciles data from various sources, such as as-run logs, traffic schedules and operator sign on/off data.
The Reconciliation Report Module is well suited for broadcasters needing to centralize and archive critical data and share information across different departments and facilities. The Reconciliation Report Module receives as-run data from the automation system and marries it with the original schedule provided by the traffic department to pinpoint discrepancies, such as commercials that did not air according to the original schedule.
The module can be set to provide automatic notifications to the sales department in the event of discrepancies, and it enables master control operators to annotate the reconciled log with a description of the error.
