Assure Superior-Quality Streaming Media With BATON ABR QC and ORION-OTT
Interra Systems will demonstrate its BATON ABR QC and ORION-OTT monitoring solutions, which set the industry benchmark for delivering high-quality streamed video. In a streaming media workflow, for large volumes of VOD files encoded at different bit rates, BATON’s comprehensive QC, including ABR-specific checks, ensures that the prepared content meets service provider and end-user quality expectations. ORION-OTT can be used to proactively perform HTTP checks and monitor the quality of each stream.
Boost the Quality of VOD and Live Event Streaming With ORION-OTT
ORION-OTT improves the quality of VOD content and live event streaming with thorough ABR manifest file validation, audio-video checks, and real-time alerts. Support for the latest standards in closed captions and ad insertion offers broadcasters and service providers the necessary tools for compliance and monetization.
In addition, Interra Systems will showcase its ORION real-time content monitoring and video analysis for linear channels. Created for IP-based delivery infrastructures, ORION provides operations groups with a powerful yet economical monitoring and troubleshooting platform that looks at all aspects of video streams, such as QoS, QoE, closed captions, and ad-insertion verification.
New Enhancements in OCM for End-to-End Visibility, Management, and Control of Linear and ABR Services
ORION Central Manager (OCM) provides an aggregated view of linear and OTT services based on monitoring data collected by ORION and ORION-OTT. The result: unprecedented visibility and power for proactive monitoring. Service providers only need to look at one screen for alerts and QoE information on each video, ensuring fast and efficient resolution of issues. Major enhancements for OCM will be shown at IBC2019, including a new architecture that enables near-real-time updates, real-time status of all channels across the network, channel performance trends, and executive reports.
Automate and Simplify Any QC Workflow With BATON
Major new updates to BATON will be shown, including BATON LipSync, an automated tool for lip sync detection and verification of audio with captions, as well as photosensitive epilepsy (PSE) testing and correction. In addition, BATON includes support for the VAST format, HDR quality checks, and setup in Amazon cloud and on-premises, as well as improved audio language and caption detection capabilities.
The latest version of BATON supports integration with WINNOW, the company’s new solution for content classification and identification. Powered by AI/ML technologies, WINNOW can detect and tag content for violence, strong language, alcohol, guns, and more based on user-defined rules. By making it easier to prepare content for different target markets and geographies, WINNOW helps video service providers and increases workflow efficiency.
