Korea EBS Realizes Consistent And Accurate QC With Interra Systems’ BATON Automated Platform

Interra Systems has announced that Korea Educational Broadcasting System (EBS) — South Korea’s public broadcasting organization dedicated to informing, educating, engaging, and enlightening a diverse populace — has recently deployed the company’s BATON AI-/ML-enabled automated QC platform and BATON Content Corrector (BCC).

Using BATON, EBS can now consistently and accurately perform comprehensive quality and compliance checks for media content in its ingest and playout workflows to ensure an exceptional quality of experience (QoE) for viewers. BATON Content Corrector (BCC) is being used by EBS to correct loudness issues automatically, guaranteeing compliance with EBS’ audio quality specifications.

Housed within EBS’ production infrastructure facility — and integrated with the company’s media asset management solutions via API — BATON thoroughly checks XDCAM HD422, Apple ProRes, and UHD files at ingest for compliance, video and audio defects, and audio channel mapping. Before sending assets to playout servers, BATON ensures their integrity and that timecodes are in sync. If a file’s loudness deviates from EBS’ standards, Interra Systems’ BCC solution automatically rectifies it. BCC addresses the need to correct content verified by BATON by enabling users to get a list of content that BATON has performed QC on, correct errors, and schedule the content for QC by BATON once again. In addition, corrected content can be played back in Interra Systems’ BATON Media Player — the company’s industry grade media player for enhanced debugging — to analyze the corrections that have been carried out.

Deployed globally by broadcast, cable, telco, satellite, IPTV, over-the-top (OTT), post-production, and archiving companies working with file-based media, Interra Systems’ BATON addresses the most demanding QC standards for quality and compliance — in the cloud, on-premises, or as a hybrid solution — for linear and streaming workflows. The platform’s scalable architecture allows users to expand their BATON setup as their QC needs grow.
