Telestream Shows Cloud Media Processing And Video Monitoring

Enhancements to Vantage Cloud Port, Prism, and its iQ monitoring solutions are on Telestream’s NAB stand.

First up, Prism: It’s never been more important to measure, monitor and manage exposure levels and color in production and post production and signal integrity in broadcast operations. The latest version of Telestream’s media monitoring and analysis platform provides monitoring of IP/SDI 4K/8K signals and is equipped with specialized new tools for wide color gamut and high dynamic range. These new capabilities, say Telestream, are designed to accommodate the new workflow changes in production and post required to meet the quality expectations for broadcast and streamed content.

“Offering objective and trusted measurements, PRISM guarantees quality at every stage of a production or broadcast chain,” it says.

Focused on the growth of content creation and delivery, Vantage Cloud Port enables automation and media processing workflows that are both “cloud-agnostic and multi-cloud”. Vantage Cloud Port now features Tempo time adjustment and content normalization plus a new version of Post Producer automated content assembly and processing.

Also new in Vantage and Vantage Cloud Port is the ability to convert between color spaces, including support and certification for Dolby Vision, insert missing color metadata, and ensure “the best possible quality” with the Vantage 16-bit video processing pipeline with full support for HDR standards. In addition, Vantage and Vantage Cloud Port now support object-based audio including Dolby ATMOS.

Vantage Cloud Port now provides “for even more predictable" cost beyond the transparency of the current on-demand model by adding an option for paying on a time-metered basis. In addition, with the new Vantage Cloud Port Conductor, customers can now upload complete Vantage workflows and execute them entirely in the cloud making it easier than ever to scale as needed.

Now, more than ever, it’s critical to “see what the customer sees” when creating an OTT network that is directly comparable with linear television in terms of quality of service and experience. Telestream’s iQ ABR monitoring solutions have enhanced post-origin content processing and delivery monitoring support for DASH and CMAF packaged ABR streams plus dynamic ad video quality assurance. Sentry software-based quality monitoring probes are now integrated into Telestream’s Intelligent Video Management System for Adaptive Streaming Media (iVMS ASM) providing a comprehensive, real-time view into the health of adaptive streaming video services.

“These latest additions to the monitoring solution provide essential insights that enable content owners, broadcasters, and service providers to manage these critical issues that can make or break their streaming service,” the company says.
