Tecloid Technologies

Bridging Broadcast Networks

About Tecloid

Systems integration for television and broadcast requires attention to detail and a vast range of skills and experience, which is exactly what we offer here at Tecloid Technologies we specialize in the integration of broadcast and satellite uplink, as well as play-out transmission systems, post production systems and studio integrations.

Broadcast integration made simple
Our goal is to make the integration process simpler for customers by providing all the services you need for any broadcast project, without out-sourcing. We control all aspects of production, which reduces time-scales and costs, and ensures exceptionally high-quality results. We deliver everything our customers need – from consultancy and training to chassis supply and shipping assistance. Our systems team travels globally to supply on-site systems and support worldwide.

Support & Maintenance

We provide ongoing maintenance of broadcast equipment and radio transmission systems, both those supplied and installed by ourselves and by third parties. We offer a service which comprises three elements:
> availability of 24/7 on-call emergency engineering support
> an annual inspection to test all systems and demonstrate compliance
> continuous monitoring of systems by telemetry linked to our Network Monitoring Center

Emergency support
Our emergency service extends from responding to alarms generated by the telemetry system, through providing telephone support to station staff to assist with a self-help solution, to on-site call-outs. Emergency support is provided at the request of the Client, and we will always consult before embarking on actions with significant cost implications.

Our services are available 24/7/365, and we operate on the basis of best endeavors with target minimum response times. We hold a selection of spare and standby equipment. Our aim is to deal with emergencies as quickly and efficiently as possible because we know how important it is stay on air.

Annual Inspection
The Inspection is a planned programme to test the operation and functionality of all main and backup systems. Any noted faults, drifts, deteriorations or non-compliances - if they can’t be fixed on the spot - will be identified for actioning. maintenance Tests and measurements are made using calibrated test equipment and are recorded and included in a written report which also serves to demonstrate compliance with Tecloid Technologies Engineering Code of Practice. The inspection covers all major aspects of the system including deviation, power, return loss, and spectral occupancy, as well as assessments of security and access, checks on consumables such as fan filters and batteries, and a non-climbing visual inspection of aerials. Also included in the report are suggestions and recommendations for improvements and enhancements to the system. The inspection is therefore a complete health check - a combined” service and MOT”, if you like - to ensure the system is, and remains, working effectively and reliably.

Digitization


WHY DIGITIZATION?
Digitization can help you to get rid of complexities related to preservation of tapes besides the content digitalized add-on advantages such as lesser consumption of space, sorting – age / genre / category/ priority/customization as required as well as cataloguing with meta tags become easy and effective. Digitization is the first step in case you like go for restoration of your analogue asset. Once the content gets a digital face, it becomes an asset which can be easy modified on various parameters such as consistency in quality, low operational expenditures, optimized turn-around time of production and post work-flow, complimenting new generation consumption and additional monetization opportunities.

Consultation & Planning

For successful digitization, consultation would be the primary step- customer understands the process, shares expectations and the stages of content delivery.

The scrupulous plan of action is then done by our experts to ensure that the output is achieved through the digitalization process. Additional services handled by us include Restoration & Preservation and Media archival & Storage.

Digitization

Content conversion from analogue to digital, with original source quality. Our methodical approach towards digital conversion is the key enabler to your re-purposing work- flow. The process of digitization starts with Inspection, Planning, Preparation, Digitization, Quality check and Archival. Transcoding and Metadata Cataloguing is a part of the process.


Additional Services

Restoration is an additional service which is happens after the digitization process, it’s complicated as well. The Video and audio part of the content undergo various stages of processing to ensure that the final out achieved is synchronized in terms of audio and video, at the same time the originality is untouched. The restored video in digital format needs to be preserved for future access. Media Archival & Storage ensures that the content which has been digitized is accessible as a back-up in case of data loss.

Transcoding

Current day consumption trend is the driving force of your media business. We enable virtually any profile transcoding for your demand which opens up the monetization scopes much bigger. Transcoding is the process by which the streams (Audio/ Video) would be converted into multiple resolutions / data rate enabling the content get adaptive. The solution for seamless streaming in multiple formats without manual interface of selection on the playout format. Technically, transrating and transsizing is taken care of in this process.

Content Preparation and Aggregation

The process starts by understanding the project goal of complete localization which would be generally multilingual. This means the content for that many number of language dubbing, voice-overs and subtitling required based on the target audience. This is incorporated into the video such that the language would be default based on region and any other language would be based on selection. After this phase of content preparation, the next would be aggregation that is multiple format output, perfection is standard, wrapping or aggregation for a video to play native irrespective of platform /codecs/ format.

Metadata cataloguing

Simple keyword search to extensive key frame searching is possible with the metadata, giving more details and helps organizing the asset better. Metadata generally may be defined as data which describes about the data which is available in any storage. Meta accordingly to technology means an underlying description. The summarization of data which would help locating data easier in any particular instance is called as Metadata cataloguing. Example a clip of a particular data based on date, location, etc … this assistance provided to locate the same in content in the shortest possible time.

Quality Check

Current day consumption trend is the driving force of your media business.Quality is the critical element in any business. The digital media laws have also made this aspect fundamental. A thorough quality check is inevitable to ensure safe handling of multi format, variable bit-rate of assets, resultant output which would make the customer happy.

  • B2MOSAIC Channel Multiviewer

    B2mosaic is a digital mosaic generation system, allowing to compose a navigation screen with multiple thumbnails created from video streams (SD or HD) or still pictures. As the system directly receives the input streams from its IP or ASI interfaces, the system is fully autonomous, and does not need any supplemental encoding or decoding devices.

    Each device is a 1 RU PC-based plateform allowing the composition of a picture including up to 20 thumbnails. Each input service is scaled and repositioned in order to compose the final picture. This picture is then encoded and broadcasted in a MPEG2/TS stream, alongside audio channels, MPEG-2 tables, and metadata. Finally, the mosaic allows to broadcast application based upon client middleware, in order to integrate easily in every set-top-box environment. If 20 thumbnails is not enough, it is also possible to link several devices for increased computing power, or to handle multiple “mosaic pages”, each page being displayed in order for an amount of time configured by the user.

    The mosaic composition is done using a WYSIWYG application, which connects to the B2Mosaic platform to seamlessly update its configuration. For each thumbnail, it is possible to define a size, the service it will contain, as well as cosmetic options (e.g. rounded corners, …). It is also possible to copy/paste thumbnails in order to speed up the layout design.
