BATON Next-Generation Hybrid QC Solution With ABR Checks
Interra Systems will showcase hybrid capabilities for its industry-leading BATON QC solution at the 2017 NAB Show.
The latest version of BATON is the next-generation quality control (QC) solution with a unified hybrid QC platform, which implements organizational QC policy to support a combination of automated and manual QC checks. With a hybrid QC solution, operators can detect certain issues, such as lip sync, which automated QC solutions alone cannot detect. The new, powerful BATON Media Player shows a list of eyeball QC checks enabled in the test plan, and allows users to add necessary errors, as well as mark each manual task as reviewed. The result is a well-integrated and efficient broadcast workflow.
During NAB, Interra Systems will also demonstrate its BATON+ QC and analysis solution, which optimizes the QC process by allowing users to define workflows representing the stages through which media content flows in a facility. New data analysis features for BATON+ allow users to effectively track trends and anomalies in the media content, optimizing decision-making and QC operations.
