At the 2018 NAB Show in Las Vegas in April, Interra Systems will demonstrate monitoring solutions for delivery of live and video on demand (VOD) content on every screen. New features for Interra's QC and monitoring solutions will be shown, including QC checks, adaptive bitrate (ABR) stream validation, real-time quality of experience (QoE) measurements, live content monitoring, and compressed stream analysis.
The latest version of Interra's BATON QC solution leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning-based algorithms, and includes support for the VAST protocol, hybrid QC workflows, as well as upgraded support for HDR content and audio language detection capabilities. A new auto-scaling feature is intended to let service providers adjust the system to handle peaks in QC content, as needed. BATON also supports a range of new codecs and formats, as well as multiple DRM systems.
ORION-OTT is a software-based OTT solution for real-time monitoring of ABR content, to verify ABR videos for quality and compliance. The latest version features an edge performance monitor (EPM) for end-to-end monitoring. The EPM integrates with third-party device monitors to collect QoE parameters for proactive management.
ORION-OTT also includes a new origin performance monitor for active and passive monitoring of origin servers, with the capability to monitor average response time and bandwidth served, server availability, and HTTP response codes. The ORION-OTT now offers wider support for ABR content and DRM-protected content and supports Adobe HDS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, RTMP, and external XML subtitles. Other extended monitoring features and checks include Dolby AC3/EAC3, HEVC, WebVTT, and TTML captions, audio alerts and manual recording. Enterprise features include workflow-based monitoring for VOD/live and centralized enterprise-wide monitoring with support for correlation of device level and upstream alerts.
Other Interra products at the show will include the ORION real-time content monitoring and video analysis system and VEGA media analyzers.
