NAB 2015: Digital Nirvana and Pikolo Systems Announce Integrated Broadcast Discrepancy System with Analysis and Video

Newark, CA – Digital Nirvana, developers of a media management platform for content creation, capture and delivery, have announced integration of their Media Management Platform with Pikolo Systems, developers of broadcast operations management workflow. Pikolo Systems’ Incident Tracker provides a digital medium for incident logging and resource management.

With Incident Tracker software, every incident from production, acquisition, promotions and playback is recorded and analyzed. Digital Nirvana’s Media Management Platform provides a simple set up to Pikolo-Incident-Video-Playercapture content from multiple sources and publish it to digital platforms – all while monitoring the video and audio for quality and compliance.

Integrating the two systems will provide operators with an immediate visual reference within the Pikolo-Incident-Video-PlayerPikolo’s GUI of the video broadcast at the time of a reported discrepancy.

“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.”

The integration of Digital Nirvana’s Media Management Platform with Pikolo Systems’ Incident Tracker can be seen for the first time at the NAB2015 convention in April in Las Vegas. Digital Nirvana will exhibit in NAB Booth #SU8813.

Designed specifically for broadcast operations, Pikolo’s Incident Tracker makes operational standardization and assessment easy. Data entry is quick and concise while providing management with detailed reporting and analysis tools. Incident Tracker is used by broadcast operations to manage more than 2000 channels worldwide. The system makes it easy to document operational tasks while eliminating procedural errors. Its integrated enterprise reporting provides easy distribution of daily summaries.

Digital Nirvana is showing Version 2.0 of its Media Management Platform at NAB 2015. Included within Version 2.0 will be the ability to publish audio/video content to popular social media platforms. As part of Version 2.0, broadcasters and content owners can work with Digital Nirvana’s dedicated team to handle time-intensive tasks, such as: reviewing broadcasts and locating clips with the most value, tagging content with the correct metadata for optimal repurposing, writing headlines designed to peak interest from the target audience, and customizing social media postings as required by each network.
