Pikolo Systems, a leader in operations management workflow, has announced a technology partnership with Digital Nirvana, developers of a media management platform for content creation, capture and delivery. Pikolo's Incident Tracker ™, a discrepancy tracking solution, now communicates seamlessly with Digital Nirvana's Media Management Platform. The integration delivers full cycle tracking of discrepancies by integrating video verification. This first of its kind solution brings increased efficiency, accountability and real-time access of operational status to broadcast operations.
Vernon Omegah, Pikolo's VP of Technology states, "Incident Tracker has always been at the forefront of innovation. This integration continues that quest by combining the best features of the two systems and the result is a win-win for broadcasters. The benefits start in master control, but extend to all departments including traffic and news."
The integration will be on display at the Digital Nirvana's NAB Booth #SU8813 at the NAB 2015 convention in April in Las Vegas. Come see how all departments including master control can now view incidents with visual reference for any channel in one centralized web-based portal.
"Users want to know immediately what was broadcast at the time of a discrepancy," said Hiren Hindocha, Digital Nirvana's Co-Founder, President, and CEO. "With this integration, they will see immediately what was broadcast at the exact point the discrepancy occurred. For example, if an encoder goes down in a station, an operator will receive a discrepancy report saying where and when the encoder went down. With the Pikolo/Digital Nirvana integration, they can also see video of what was broadcast precisely when that encoder went down."
