This is an exciting yet challenging time for video service providers as they maintain the traditional video delivery model and embrace and exploit the OTT platform. While OTT streaming offers tremendous growth opportunities, its distribution is more complex given that it requires new content packaging and delivery formats, putting in place a new VOD and live monitoring infrastructure, ensuring regulatory compliance, and personalized ads. Additionally, providing high-quality video and viewing experiences on multiscreen platforms are a must for ensuring success in the highly competitive market.

At the 2019 NAB Show, Interra Systems' product and technology experts will demonstrate how the company's cutting-edge solutions are helping the media industry with content quality control (QC), monitoring, and classification to streamline content management, improve efficiencies, and provide exceptional audio-video quality on every device. The flexibility of deploying Interra's solutions in the cloud, on-premises, or a combination of both allows content creators and distributors to adopt a pragmatic approach best suited for their organization.

 

Video Quality Assurance for Streaming Media From Ingest Through Delivery for Live and VOD Content

At the 2019 NAB Show, Interra Systems will showcase its BATON ABR QC and ORION-OTT monitoring solutions, which set the industry benchmark for delivering high-quality streamed video. BATON ABR and ORION-OTT perform deep QC checks and monitor VOD and live content from ingest to distribution points. By carrying out exhaustive checks at pre- and post-transcode stages, along with comprehensive, delivery-specific checks and monitoring, this powerful solution assures exceptional QoE for every stream on every device. 

 

ORION-OTT For Live Event Streaming

ORION-OTT can monitor a large number of streams for ABR compliance along with audio-video quality checks in real time. The high-performance solution suite also supports closed captions, ad verification/compliance, and DRMs on both Windows and Linux operating systems.
