Interra Systems has extended its partnership with Dolby. Interra Systems' BATON file-based quality control (QC) platform has now been integrated with Dolby Vision for high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut (WCG) video. BATON already supports Dolby Atmos, an audio format for creating and playing back multichannel movie soundtracks for three-dimensional effect.
With support for Dolby Vision, BATON can now decode and apply the metadata contained in Dolby Vision streams. This lets OTT video service providers check for conformance against Dolby Vision, decode Dolby Vision content, and check for the presence of Dolby Vision metadata.
The BATON QC platform is designed to enable service providers to perform video, audio, and closed caption checks. Featuring a flexible and scalable architecture, BATON is intended for OTT providers that are looking to grow their video streaming service and improve efficiencies on every device.
"Interra Systems has always been very aggressive in adding support for Dolby technology in its QC tools," said Vijeta Kashyap, vice president of operations at Interra Systems. "This latest expansion of our partnership will enable customers to perform QC and analyze Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos streams in production and delivery workflows, expediting the time to market of high-quality HDR content. With the fast adoption of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos on devices such as TVs and smartphones, supporting this new technology is a must for today's OTT video providers if they want to deliver rich, immersive viewing experiences."
