Publish date:

OTT video consumption is growing rapidly. By 2021, European OTT video revenues are expected to double, according to Frost & Sullivan. Big revenue opportunities are up for play, yet the OTT environment is complex, with new standards, formats, and device types and with changing video production and delivery approaches. OTT service delivery is driven by file-based workflows. Service providers are handling an ever-growing library of VOD and SVOD assets. Without comprehensive video insights and a streamlined file-based workflow approach, service providers in the region are challenged to deliver high-quality OTT offerings.

At IBC2018, Interra Systems will showcase its industry-proven expertise in file-based workflows, demonstrating how OTT service providers can deliver exceptional audio-video quality on every device. Beyond offering unified QC and monitoring solutions, Interra Systems plays a larger role in the digital media solutions space through innovations in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning (ML) techniques, which will also be highlighted at IBC2018.

BATON ABR & ORION™ Suite: Scalable, Reliable, and Efficient Solutions for OTT File-Based Delivery

At the show, Interra Systems will spotlight its BATON ABR and ORION™-OTT solutions, which set the industry benchmark for delivering high-quality streamed video. BATON ABR and ORION-OTT perform deep QC and monitoring for VOD content from ingest to NOC and other distribution points. Through demos, visitors will be able to 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. For live-event streaming, ORION-OTT offers a high-performance platform that can monitor a large number of streams for ABR compliance along with audio-video quality checks in real time. The solution suite also supports closed captions, ad verification/compliance, and DRMs.

Interra Systems’ OTT solutions can be deployed in the cloud or on premises, providing enhanced efficiency and flexibility for any workflow. When complemented by the company’s ORION system for real-time monitoring of IP-based infrastructures, BATON ABR and ORION-OTT provide broadcasters with a total solution for streaming superior-quality services. ORION looks at all aspects of video streams, such as QoS, QoE, closed captions, ad-insertion verification, reporting, and troubleshooting.
