The company leading the charge into an ATSC 3.0 world has just launched the 25-Seven TVC-15, being marketed as “a modulation monitor for watermarking.” The device is designed to allow stations in electronically measured markets to independently detect, monitor, and analyze how well each element in their programming supports audio watermarking. Measurements happen in real time, right off the air, without being connected to a watermark encoder. Every 400 milliseconds, TVC-15’s tone verification codec detects and analyzes the actual code symbols in any audio fed to it.

With a direct line to DAD in the studio, the broadcaster can control the complete on-air interface over IP via any standard web browser. This includes the ability to manage and drive on-air presentation, playlist manipulation, voice tracking, and other critical production tasks across the end-to-end workflow. Among other capabilities, the WebDAD can enable part-time, contract, and remote workers to access the playout system. This can enhance voicetracking opportunities for radio stations, ENCO notes.
