New Products for SET Expo 2015:

ClearView Shuttle 4K
For the first time at SET Expo, Video Clarity will demonstrate its ClearView Shuttle 4K, a new system that adds another 4K-capable solution to the company's ClearView video quality analyzer line. Originally designed as a portable, entry-level solution for HD video quality-of-service testing, ClearView Shuttle now includes record and playback capabilities for testing 4K video with audio. With the ability to record, play back, and compare sequences of uncompressed 4K video, ClearView Shuttle is ideal for device manufacturers and media operators that need to test new encoding technologies and existing processing devices already installed in their operations. 

To maintain video and audio quality as compression standards change, everyone along the broadcast chain needs to measure continually the performance of the compression engines on which their day-to-day operations depend. And now, as more and more devices with 4K capabilities are built and deployed, device manufacturers, as well as operators, require quality testing with the ability to record at native 4K resolutions in addition to HD and SD formats. ClearView Shuttle 4K is an evolutionary step that provides 4K I/O device and signal path testing at a lower price point with repeatable, objective quality measurements that closely resemble subjective results.

RTM 3G Portable Real-Time Monitoring Device
At SET Expo 2015, Video Clarity will showcase a smaller, lighter, rack-mountable version of its RTM 3G real-time monitoring device. This new portable 2-RU version incorporates SSD technology, which saves space and creates higher reliability. RTM 3G is used for short- or long-term quality monitoring of live and prerecorded 3 Gbps content to detect subtle or intermittent errors. With RTM 3G, users can test the quality of any delivered service they deploy -- either from broadcast interfaces or IP networks. In doing so, they will be able to understand service and product performance levels and perfect program delivery before or during content delivery. 

RTM 3G features DMOS, a full-resolution, full-reference-quality human perceptual measurement performed in real time. DMOS allows users to view a channel's quality without the complexity of setting up one or more recordings first. When video or audio runs outside of preset quality measurement thresholds, RTM 3G will automatically record the unacceptable clips and log the quality scores. RTM 3G also enables multiple audio and video measurements in one system at the same time, and users get a high degree of accuracy because recordings are in the uncompressed domain.
