Most broadcasters want the ability to compare program content of other channels, or multiple channels within a particular area or across networks. The power to monitor what other channels are doing is essential, especially in the world of competitive news and sports.
Television networks, stations, and cable networks use Observer’s multi-channel monitoring system for this purpose. Observer allows the network producers to watch , record, and analyze the program content of the other major competing networks, right down to the specific date and time or particular topic. Observer also gives producers the power to view competitors’ breaking news alerts, as they occur, so they can keep their own reporters who are live at the scene informed or identify missing information.
