Broadcast Use Case Examples

Business Analytics

Whether traditional, streaming, on-demand, OTT or OTA, video quality and performance directly impact a viewer’s experience. That experience has a direct impact on the organizations’ business outcomes. But in broadcast, because there are many processes involved in getting the video content to the user, it is vital to identify the root cause and take proactive action to resolve it.

Broadcast operations involve multiple processes including content creation, prep, edit, segmentation, and transmission. Errors can occur in any one of the processes resulting in unfavorable user experience.

With the current state of shared resources for multi-platform distribution, a single error can be easily multiplied if it is not quickly identified and corrected.

Data with a mouse click

ITracker provides an easy to use web-based interface that allows the organization to centralize operational data acquisition from all sites and locations. Each site can independently capture data relevant to their operations but in a centralize database allowing for a total view when analyzing results.

ITracker incorporates information from users along with information from their party vendors to generate a single source of truth.

Centralization enables process improvement

ITracker allows for the “connecting the dots” root cause analysis that is missing in most organization’s business intelligence initiatives. Incorporating ITracker’s data capture and analytics, provides the ability to identify actionable results.

For example, analytics for ratings results might provide a peripheral knowledge that ratings are down for a specific channel in the west coast on Tuesdays.

While an ITracker augmented analysis will show that the root cause is coming for low audio signals and low sound quality from a specific device.
