Interra Systems Improves Quality Of Transport Streams With VEGA Vista

Using Interra Systems’ new VEGA Vista software, broadcasters and video equipment providers can quickly perform a comprehensive analysis on high-level video stream data.

VEGA Vista is a new software-based command line interface for quality assurance of transport streams. Running VEGA Vista software on-premises or in the cloud, broadcasters and video equipment providers can verify MPEG-2 transport streams against the MPEG standard at various points in the workflow for compressed video quality, compliance, and interoperability. The analyzer is also capable of checking for buffer underflow or overflow conditions, which can cause transmission issues, speeding up content validation tasks, and increasing workflow efficiency.

“The volume of content that broadcasters and video equipment providers are handling is increasing tremendously, making efficient video analysis imperative,” said Anupama Anantharaman, vice president of product management at Interra Systems. “VEGA Vista keeps in mind next-generation analysis requirements. Apart from providing a complete set of checks and analysis features to help media companies assure MPEG-2 compliance, the software can be deployed as a Docker-based application and fit into an automated workflow, making it an indispensable tool for quality assurance of MPEG streams."

Interra Systems’ VEGA Vista software supports a wide range of applications, including MPEG-2 transport stream validation, buffer analysis, system interoperability assurance, debugging and troubleshooting, and encoder compliance. VEGA Vista can be installed on and shared across any Linux, Windows, and Mac operating system in an organization, ensuring rapid scalability through software license upgrades. In addition, the software app can be invoked through a script, enabling it to be used in a variety of file-based workflows.

Using VEGA Vista software, broadcasters and video equipment providers can extract elementary streams through the command line and quickly perform comprehensive analysis on high-level video stream data. VEGA Vista supports CableLabs DOCSIS 3.0 and elementary header level checks, as well as analysis based on error numbers, number of TS packets, and buffer analysis of T-STD model. By providing a detailed report of all conformance violations through a user-friendly interface, VEGA Vista helps to ensure that users can create high-quality transport streams.
