As global OTT video consumption continues to grow, service providers have an opportunity to drive new revenue. OTT video in Europe will be worth 18 billion euros by 2022 and will account for over 80 percent of TV and video retail revenue growth, according to recent research.

The challenge is the complexity of the OTT environment. Not only do service providers need to understand new standards, formats, device types, and changing video-production and delivery approaches, they also must learn how to effectively manage an ever-increasing library of VOD and SVOD assets. Adopting an efficient, quality-driven, file-based workflow approach is critical to success.

At the SET Expo, Interra Systems will showcase its industry-proven expertise in file-based workflows and in providing comprehensive video insights. Using Interra Systems’ unified QC and monitoring solutions, OTT service providers can deliver exceptional audio-video quality on every device. Interra Systems will also demonstrate how it plays a larger role in the digital media solutions space through innovations in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning (ML) techniques.

In demo areas, attendees can see how BATON ABR's exhaustive checks at pre- and post-transcode stages, along with ORION-OTT's comprehensive, delivery-specific checks and features, assure exceptional QoE for every stream on every device.

When complemented by the company’s ORION™ system for real-time monitoring of IP-based infrastructures, BATON and ORION-OTT provide broadcasters with a total solution for streaming superior-quality services.
