Today almost all video and audio are produced and transported as compressed streams, with more product and delivery options being created every day. Video Clarity started in 2003 with a simple mission:
- Provide new, unique and reliable solutions to quantifiably analyze and monitor video and audio quality
To maintain quality as compression standards change, everyone along the chain needs to constantly measure the performance of the compression engines on which day-to-day operations depend. “Digital compression” means having to make choices, including temporal resolution vs. noise, spatial resolution vs. image size, and luminance/color range vs. gamut. Any operation, large or small, from hardware/software designers to end user-producers who work with any kind of compression in standard or high definition, and now Ultra High Definition should subjectively and objectively analyze compression performance to know how their technical and aesthetic choices will look and sound to both a professional end-user or a home audience.
Video Clarity Provides Three Product Lines:
- Real-Time Monitor / Recorders (RTM) to check audio / video quality, audio offset, loudness and ancillary data quality. When the quality drops the A/V source and comparative test input is saved for review.
- ClearView Video Analyzers for analysis of the video and audio quality either using quantitative, repeatable measurements or your own eyes & ears.
- ClearView Players provide a reliable solution for R&D and quality assurance labs with programmable playback operations for all formats of uncompressed video.
RTM, ClearView and ClearView Player systems are designed and built at Video Clarity specifically for audio and video quality test and measurement. We support all of our products through our Silicon Valley, US offices and through our worldwide distributor network.
