Interra Systems BVE 2017 Preview

At Londons’s BVE show, Interra Systems will demonstrate their comprehensive, integrated, and intuitive QC/monitoring solutions. A key highlight will be new HEVC and 4K support across all of the company’s products, including ORION real-time content monitoring and video analysis systems, VEGA media analysers, and BATON automated, file-based QC.

Interra Systems will provide live demos of its quality control and monitoring solutions for checking and assuring the integrity of 4K UHD, HEVC, HDR, DPX, and IMF content.

With the introduction of increased resolution in 4K, broadcasters must support increased intensity and color as outlined by the ITU-R BT.2020 specification. Higher bit depths also need to be supported. Interra Systems' solutions optimize this process, enabling better detection of video quality artifacts and other errors in high-resolution content.

A key highlight at BVE will be the U.K. launch of Interra Systems' ORION-OTT, one of the industry's first software-based over-the-top (OTT) solutions for real-time monitoring of adaptive bitrate (ABR) content for multiscreen service delivery. Leveraging industry-proven audio/video quality analysis technologies, ORION-OTT enables OTT service/equipment and CDN providers to seamlessly monitor online video delivery for quality and compliance.

Interra Systems will showcase BATON 7.0, the latest version of its industry-leading QC solution for file-based SD, HD, and cloud-based workflows. BATON is a comprehensive multi-format solution that supports global standards for QC operations.

BATON 7.0 offers audio detection support and language verification of subtitles and closed-caption files for audio tracks in English, Spanish, German, French, Dutch, Arabic, Italian, Portuguese, and Swedish, with more to come. Using BATON, operators can automatically match the language in each audio track with associated metadata as well as simultaneously check multiple audio tracks in each media asset.

The latest BATON+ QC and data analysis system will also be on display at BVE. BATON+ optimises the workflow QC process by allowing users to define workflows representing the stages through which media content flows in a facility. By defining workflows, BATON+ users can ensure metadata consistency and compare QC reports in different ways across content lineage.

At BVE, Interra Systems will showcase its ORION real-time content monitoring system. A software-based platform, ORION is enhanced with multi-processor architecture support, enabling customers to optimise their hardware infrastructure, both in terms of cost and performance.
