TAG Boosts Media Workflows with New Tech and Integrations at NAB

TAG Video Systems, the provider of software-based IP end-to-end workflow monitoring, deep probing, and real-time visualisation, has announced plans to showcase its most extensive capabilities to date at NAB 2024 in Booth W1655.

A comprehensive monitor wall, forming the core of the exhibition, will demonstrate efficient, agile, and innovative quality at scale capabilities across all major media workflows. Highlights include new partner integrations, intelligent language detection technology, enhanced support for QoE measurements, an end-to-end HDR workflow, and a preview of an intuitive touch panel operator interface designed to streamline system configuration and operation. These new technologies will empower TAG users to deliver exceptional quality at scale with even more intuitive, automated, and precise tools.

Maximise Data Utilisation – Live on the Show Floor

Visitors to TAG’s Booth at NAB will be treated to an interactive deep dive into the extensive potential of the Company’s monitoring and visualisation capabilities. TAG will demonstrate in real-time how dashboards can be effortlessly built and customised using popular open toolsets like Kibana, Grafana, and Kafka to address any level of detail. This showcases how users can fully leverage their data to gain invaluable insights from TAG’s Realtime Media Platform.

End-to-End HDR Workflow Capabilities

TAG’s end-to-end HDR workflow capabilities are now expanded to include HDR up-conversion and down-conversion to facilitate combined SDR and HDR workflows. This enhanced functionality supports deep real-time HDR end-to-end metadata monitoring, providing users with increased agility to achieve unparalleled HDR quality.

Elevating the Workflow Eco-System with Best-of-Breed Technology Partners – Integration Demos

Delivering the highest level of quality of service, the latest technological advancements, and viable options for business advancement remain TAG priorities. At the forefront are integrations with leading technology partners that showcase tangible customer benefits.

Notably, TAG’s recent partnership with Amagi enhances monitoring accuracy and effectiveness through TAG’s advanced all-software and cloud-native technology. This integration, showcased for the first time at a major industry event, utilises TAG’s monitoring by exception capabilities and leverages its user-friendly APIs to efficiently monitor and manage a significant number of channels, enhancing the reliability of Amagi’s FAST and broadcast streams.

NAB attendees will also witness an integration that seamlessly incorporates support for TAG’s platform into Skyline’s Dataminer media management platform. This integration streamlines deployment and configuration and increases end-to-end visibility, automation, and user control of large-scale TAG installations. Operators benefit from simultaneous insight into the status of their infrastructure from Dataminer, along with insight into the health of their content and live streams from TAG.

Streamlined Operations Control- New Operator Interface

Brand new for NAB 2024 is TAG’s operator interface preview. This innovative touch panel interface displays the live multiviewer output as an interactive, minimised version on any touch-controlled device. Operators can access pre-defined, customisable configuration and operational functionality with just a tap on the mosaic, dramatically simplifying day-to-day tasks and removing overall complexity.

In this interface preview, operators will be able to instantly switch between multiple layouts on the entire multiviewer, or just one mosaic, should a change of event, operation, or focus occur. Additionally, the operator can change the content of a tile to a different source, channel, or stream simply by clicking on the tile. This control extends to audio, allowing the user to select a specific source and play its audio to verify a match.

Based on TAG’s unique Content Matching Technology, the company now supports straightforward, perception-based QoE measures like the Structural Similarity Index Measure (SSIM). TAG users will be able to numerically compare the video quality before and after encoding or between any two points in the workflow, and evaluate even the most complex, high-noise levels video based on the SSIM smart algorithm.

Automatic Subtitles Quality Monitoring at Scale- TAG Language Detection

This new TAG technology preview not only identifies the subtitles language but also calculates its quality with dictionary-defined precision. Users will see the caption’s language and accuracy in percentages based on the relevant language dictionary, enabling them to accurately evaluate quality and compliance without needing to review the actual subtitles, reducing overall manual monitoring.
