If you are looking for a reliable way to ensure your Nielsen codes are being inserted correctly in your broadcast content, look no further than the 7760ND-HD.

Evertz' Nielsen Universal Reader module provides a solution for monitoring the presence of Nielsen codes from the broadcast path. The 7760ND-HD monitors both the video AMOL1/AMOL2 data as well as the audio NAES data and watermark data. The 7760ND-HD accepts a base band video input transported on SD-SDI or HD-SDI with embedded audio.

The presence of codes and the value for the codes are then monitored/reported using various outputs from the device, these include logging and alarming exclusively using VistaLINK® PRO, on screen display (OSD) via the MVP, VIP and VIP-X monitoring products (see table below for details on what data each product can support). Also simple card edge status is available using the cards LEDs and dot matrix display.

The display of the monitored Nielsen data is available on various Evertz monitoring products. Each product can be setup to receive the monitored data distributed from the 7760ND-HD over the network.
