Qligent to Debut VOD Content Verification at IBC

New Qligent software solution strengthens insight into performance and consistency of media files, wrappers, QoE and content metadata, measured over specific time periods.

At IBC 2018 Qligent will introduce Vision-VOD, a new automated, file-based analysis solution for front-end QC and back-end QoE verification of video-on-demand (VOD) content.

The software enables immediate verification of media files, wrappers, QoE, and content metadata, which includes automated audio level normalization, at the origination point. Following these front-end file-based QC verification tasks, Vision-VOD offers clear identification of audio, video and metadata defects from origination through delivery for networks of any scale, and without any end user operation. Furthermore, thresholds for any level can be established and continually adjusted for optimized performance, with the added power of management by exception.

In addition to front-end QC and back-end QoE tasks, Vision-VOD offers a highly configurable, value-added analysis component supporting a wide range of media formats. Notifications can also be established, which will alert users if the content doesn’t pass the test. This means that broadcasters and other VOD service providers have an immediate and automated point of reference if loudness levels, presence of black, or other performance issues continued for configurable lengths of time.

Vision-VOD is available as a SaaS-based add-on within Qligent’s Vision monitoring and analysis platform. The solution will be demonstrated on stand with the company's established Vision-OTT monitoring and analysis system.
