At the NAB Show in Las Vegas in April, SSIMWAVE will showcase technologies designed to mimic the human visual system to optimize video quality of experience (QoE).

The company's Structural Similarity index method, SSIMPLUS, is intended to help the video industry measure and objectively score performance at every point in the delivery pipeline. The scores can be used to A/B test and compare individual equipment components such as encoders, transcoders and packagers. QoE requirements also are being written into service level agreements (SLAs) between content handoffs internally and with third-party providers. SSIMPLUS scores are intended to enhance existing QoS/QoE metrics, an end viewer score - what an ad-supported or paying subscriber would see and say about the video quality they are watching.

"The industry's ability to optimize video quality and bandwidth has been hamstrung by lack of consistent monitoring tools and metrics," said Dr. Abdul Rehman, CEO and co-founder of SSIMWAVE. "We bring the unique capability to measure objectively video performance from source to display, producing a score that applies an apples-to-apples valuation to QoE across any network. In short, we make video better."

The SSIMWAVE booth demo will include an end-to-end demonstration of SSIMPLUS, as well as a demonstration of how SSIMWAVE technology can verify performance of encoders, transcoders and other individual devices within live, on-demand and advertising workflows. The exhibit also will include an interactive display to allow attendees to compare their impressions of video quality against actual SSIMPLUS viewer scores.
