Interra Upgrades QC Systems

As the amount of high-quality, high-bandwidth video content including UHD/4K grows, the need for scalable quality control (QC) and monitoring solutions becomes ever more critical.

Interra Systems recently updated versions of Baton, its QC solution, Baton+ for workflow QC capabilities and data analysis, and its Orion real-time monitoring and video analysis solution.

Baton 6.3 is the latest version of the company's file-based QC solution that optimizes the QC process for 4K UHD, HEVC, HDR, DPX, and IMF content, and cloud-based workflows. It includes a wide range of enhancements, including improvements to video/audio quality checks, data checks, audio language detection, verification checks across formats, usability improvements in test plan creation/management, and more. It also features a more intuitive media player interface.

The Baton Content Corrector (BCC) can now be accessed remotely via Web browser to enable on-the-go monitoring and reduce file copying operations during corrections. Using the BCC remote functionality, broadcasters and post-production houses can auto-correct a wide range of audio, video, and metadata errors that have been detected in media files anytime, anywhere.

Baton+ QC and Data Analysis
New capabilities have been added to Baton+ QC and data analysis solution including workflow QC, data analytics, and a centralized management console. Baton+ leverages workflow definitions to ensure consistency of QC results across the content life cycle. The software significantly improves workflow efficiency across multiple Baton installations, acting as a centralized console for synchronizing asset details from different locations.

Orion Real-Time Monitoring and Video Analysis
The Orion real-time content monitoring system, now features enhanced usability and reporting capabilities. Orion performs critical monitoring functions on hundreds of services simultaneously from a single platform, providing operators with a single point of visibility and access to important information such as status, alerts, alarms, visible impairments, error reports, triggered captures, and more, to speed up monitoring operations and improve QoS and QoE.

The latest version of Orion offers enhanced paginated live views for feeds and services with the ability to organize feeds into groups and improve feed management. Alert information is optimixed with overlaid related trends and alerts. Also, Orion enables service providers to check for presence/absence of encryption as well as discontinuities in EPG. Orion is now available on Linux.
