Interra Systems, has announced a cloud-enabled integration of its BATON file-based QC solution with the Evertz Mediator X media asset management platform. The new integrated solution is expected to simplify the automation of quality control (QC) for media developers, producers, and distributors.
Integration between BATON and Mediator enables media enterprises to automatically perform QC checks on media files during each stage of the workflow, on-premise or in the cloud, providing instant alerts and reports on issues. By enhancing the quality of video and audio, the combined solution maximizes content monetization opportunities and operational efficiencies.
"Operational efficiency improves when traditionally manual QC workflows are replaced with high-quality automated QC solutions," said Dan Turow, vice president of file-based solutions at Evertz. "By joining forces with Interra Systems, we help our customers deliver high-quality content on every screen, in the most efficient way possible."
"As an entirely software-based and cloud-enabled solution, BATON ensures content readiness across a workflow through integration with Evertz Mediator X via API," said Vijeta Kashyap, vice president, operations at Interra Systems. "We look forward to taking the collaboration with Evertz to the next level and providing customers with integrated solutions that lead to better monetization."
BATON is a cloud-enabled solution that offers increased performance over standalone QC tools, providing comprehensive quality checks, enterprise-wide scalability, and verification efficiency. Using the QC solution, media providers can support a wide range of media formats and perform quality checks, including extensive subtitles and closed caption verification, audio language identification, PSE correction, and loudness detection and correction. BATON's powerful Media Player offers frame-accurate review, rich QC analytics, and smart workflow tools.
The Evertz Mediator X media asset management and workflow platform, with its integrated Playtime multichannel playout and Pilot studio control options, includes efficient tools to repurpose and deliver multiformat content. By bringing the content and metadata closer to the user, Mediator's desktop user experience with multiformat browse, advanced search tools, enables rapid expansion in playout and publishing. Evertz Mediator X can manage complex content at a component level throughout its lifecycle and can track and manage thousands of video, audio, graphics, and subtitle assets required for any system.
Integration of Interra Systems' BATON QC solution and Evertz Mediator X media asset management and workflow platform will be showcased at the 2018 NAB Show at the Interra Systems' booth SU7605, and the Evertz booth N1503.
