At the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas in April, Interra Systems will showcase its approach to QC and monitoring for both live and on-demand video content across multiple screens. New features that will be displayed include QC checks, adaptive bitrate (ABR) stream validation, real-time QoE measurements, live content monitoring, and compressed stream analysis.

Specific products being highlighted at the show will include the BATON QC solution, ORION monitoring solutions and VEGA media analyzers.

The latest version of the BATON QC solution features a unified hybrid QC platform, which implements organizational QC policy to support a combination of automated and manual QC checks. The hybrid solution is intended to let operators detect certain issues, such as lip sync, which automated QC solutions alone cannot detect. The new BATON Media Player shows a list of eyeball QC checks enabled in the test plan, and allows users to add necessary errors, as well as mark each manual task as reviewed.

The company will also demonstrate its BATON+ QC and analysis solution, which is designed to allow users to define workflows representing the stages through which media content flows in a facility. New data analysis features for BATON+ allow users to track trends and anomalies in the media content.

New additions to Interra's ORION monitoring solutions family include ORION-OTT, a software-based over-the-top (OTT) solution for real-time monitoring of ABR content for multiscreen service delivery. ORION-OTT is intended to enable OTT service/equipment and CDN providers to monitor online video delivery for quality and compliance.

In addition, Interra will showcase its software-based ORION real-time content monitoring and video analysis system that runs on standard hardware. The latest version features performance improvements in terms of number of services that can be monitored on a single machine and performance scaling on multi-CPU systems. New enterprise features include REST APIs for exporting closed captions, EBP and IGMP data in XML format; system control; and configuration.

The VEGA media analysis solution is designed for standards compliance, debug, and interoperability of encoded streams. Recent updates to the VEGA family include support for Windows 10; the latest HEVC HM reference code; HEVC interlaced streams; VP9 streams (4:2:2, 4:4:4); PCAP streams; Dolby AC-4 audio; and AVS Plus video.
