Fisher Communications Deploys Monitor IQ from Digital Nirvana for Loudness and Compliance Monitoring
Stations Monitor Compliance Issues Independently, but Group Management can also Perform Remote Checks
Fisher Communications, Inc. [NASDAQ:FSCI], a Seattle-based broadcast communications and media company, announced that Digital Nirvana?s Monitor IQ Essentials 3.0 is the station group?s chosen platform for regulatory compliance and loudness monitoring.
Monitor IQ provides Web-based, HD/SD channel monitoring, logging, compliance, and diagnostics/QC, as well as archiving of content recordings for up to 90 days. Monitor IQ Essentials is one of four versions designed to tailor Monitor IQ to the varying requirements of broadcasters.
?So far, we?ve installed Monitor IQ at three of our stations, including KOMO-TV4 in Seattle and KATU in Portland, OR in 2011, and KBAK-TV in Bakersfield, CA this year. Our plan is to eventually deploy it across the entire station group,? said Lee Wood, regional director of engineering for Fisher Communications, in Seattle, WA, which operates 13 full power and seven low power television stations across the U.S.
