Yoomedia Saves 95% of Rack Space with IdeasUnlimited.tv
1RU Digital Automated Compliance Recorder Eliminates VHS for Two Channels
Yoomedia freed up 95 per cent of the real estate required for compliance recording for two interactive channels with ContentProbe from IdeasUnlimited.tv. The digital, automated solution retains all transmitted content form the William Hill channel and Avago Channel in a single rack unit for 90 days in accordance with Ofcom regulations.
Unlimited users can browse played-out content from their desktops without additional software via a simple diary interface. In addition, ContentProbe delivers daily reports for added peace of mind.
Yoomedia previously recorded, labelled and archived its transmitted content manually and stored it on VHS tapes. ContentProbe frees up technical operators' time previously spent on the repetitive task.
"At 1RU, ContentProbe uses just 5 per cent of the rack space real estate we needed to house the VHS tapes for compliance recording," says Yoomedia technical director Chris Pearman. "IdeasUnlimited.tv offered the most flexible solution at the best price and we now plan to roll out the system to all the channels Yoomedia hosts."
"Compliance recording can be seen as a necessary evil that consumes significant space and the time of skilled personnel," says Glyn Powell-Evans. "Yoomedia demonstrates that there is a real, viable solution that ultimately does the job more reliably and reduces overheads."
