Censorship in general is suppressing public communication, speech, or other statistics, assuming that such material is considered sensitive, harmful, objectionable, or inconvenient as determined by a government or private administration/ institution, such as corporate censorship. Broadcasting i.e. broadcast of television and radio have traditionally been bound by greater censorship controls than any other ways of expression. Federal law prohibits the transmission or broadcast of obscene, profane, or indecent language.
On a daily basis, media companies manage a huge amount of media content in a fast and vigorous environment, where censorship becomes an indispensable element in the process of broadcasting. Thus, to tackle this issue, there are enterprises to help media companies to navigate through the complexity with intuitive interfaces and maintain control and visibility of the content quickly with highly capable tools. These enterprises provide solutions for all the needs of media companies, whether it is to make last minute edits in an ever-changing environment, to improve the content, or to meet the compliance laws.
Broadcasting censorship solutions manage an incoming signal despite the fact that it is being consumed and the playout continues going on air. This allows the editor or publishing supervisor to analyze the live incoming signal. It provides the possibility to eliminate the content that cannot be broadcasted or put on air, such as inappropriate audio, blurring segments that are inappropriate to be put on air, etc. After a certain interval, normally of 5 – 15 minutes, depending on customer requirements, the edited event is broadcast live on air. Cut video time would automatically be offset with a list of promos and fillers available when required, with the purpose of catching up with the timeline. To manage the modification from advertising disruptions, these solutions could also assimilate a programmed regional Ad-insertion, on the incoming live program.
