Interra Systems Prepares for IBC2019

Quality is an absolutely critical benchmark for success in today’s highly competitive TV market.

At the upcoming International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, Interra Systems will demonstrate how its newest solutions are driving superior-quality video experiences on multiscreen platforms. Visitors to the Interra Systems stand will see its full range of content QC, monitoring, analysis, and classification solutions that streamline content management, improve efficiencies, and provide exceptional technical quality on every device. Its software-driven solutions can be deployed in the cloud or on-site.

Major new updates to debut at IBC include BATON LipSync, an automated tool for lip sync detection and verification of audio with captions, and photosensitive epilepsy (PSE) testing and correction. In addition, BATON now includes support for the VAST format, HDR quality checks, setup in the Amazon Web Services cloud and on-site, as well as improved audio language and caption detection capabilities.

The latest version of BATON also supports integration with WINNOW AI/ML technologies to 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.

ORION-OTT can be used to proactively perform HTTP checks and monitor the quality of each stream. 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 spotlight 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.

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.

Also on stand will be Interra Systems' VEGA media analyzer, a premier tool for standards compliance, debugging, and in-depth analysis of encoded streams. Recent updates to the VEGA family include support for the AV1 format with buffer analysis, JPEG format, and OGG streams. Using this indispensable tool, video service providers can easily check the quality and integrity of manifest files and variants.
