Sentry Family Adds CALM Monitoring/Reporting

The Sentry family of digital content monitors from Tektronix now feature three new software upgrades.

Here’s what the monitors can do now:

>> Capture “thumbnail” images of programs to enable video service providers (VSPs) to validate program content and verify when program outages have occurred.

>> Generate an ad cue report that combines thumbnails with audio-level graphing to create a single report capturing all the data VSPs need to provide to the Federal Communications Commission to demonstrate compliance with the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) Act. This report provides visual validation of ad presence, and that the correct ad aired at the appropriate time and during the right program as well as noting whether the ad was too loud or too quiet.



>> An enhanced Sentry Perceptual Video Quality (PVQ) capability (that gauges how much video compression artifacts impact viewers) renders it more sensitive to certain artifacts caused by over-compression that specifically affects chroma detail.
