IP Monitoring Simplified With Interra’s New ORION 2110 Probe

Interra Systems, a provider of content QC, monitoring, and analysis solutions to the digital media industry, announced the ORION 2110 Probe for IP-based media workflows. The new platform supports the SMPTE ST 2110 standard, providing broadcasters with a future-proof, end-to-end monitoring solution for assuring exceptional video quality in an IP distribution environment.

“As the broadcast world transitions toward IP infrastructure to simplify content preparation and delivery operations, having the capability to monitor the new and complex ST 2110 workflow will become absolutely essential,” said Anupama Anantharaman, vice president, product management, at Interra Systems. “We have developed the ORION 2110 Probe with a smart feature set that includes validation of individual essences, SDP protocol checks, and monitoring density, among others. Using the ORION 2110 Probe, our customers will be able to ensure high quality and performance for SDI-IP streams and take full advantage of the flexibility and benefits of the ST 2110 standard.”

The ORION 2110 Probe performs comprehensive ST 2110 monitoring, including ST 2110 main and redundancy signals, and NMOS-based ST 2110 feed discovery in the network.

The probe addresses the diverse complexities and challenges of the SDI and IP environments, offering a simple, powerful approach to content monitoring especially for production and contribution applications.  The ORION 2110 Probe also offers a rich set of REST APIs to ensure seamless integration with third-party software, including most network management systems.

The addition of the ORION 2110 Probe to the ORION monitoring platform will enable media companies to rapidly detect video quality issues throughout the entire video workflow, including ingest, content preparation, and delivery. Gaining insights about video errors as early as the ingest stage enables broadcasters to dramatically improve video quality of service and quality of experience.
