Georgia, USA – Crystal has announced that its Video Metadata Analyzer (VMA) made the shortlist for the prestigious CSI Awards.
Now in its 13th year, the CSI awards are among the most competitive technology awards in the industry, designed to recognise and reward innovation and excellence in the cable, satellite, broadcast, IPTV, telco, broadband/OTT video, mobile TV, and associated sectors.
The Crystal VMA has been shortlisted in the Best Data and Analytics Innovation category. Crystal VMA is used to view, describe and correlate the presentation of programme content based on included metadata. Metadata is precisely timed so any implied actions can take place at the exact video frame. Crystal’s VMA can alarm on anomalies due to errors, latency or inconsistencies in encoding and transmission paths.
