New Products for Inter BEE 2015:
ClearView Player 8K Uncompressed 8K/4K/HD/SD Recorder and Player
Video Clarity’s ClearView Player 8K is targeted for test labs and broadcast events where a reliable video server is required to play back exact segments of video either in a long-form or short-form loop. ClearView Player 8K has all the record and file ingest functions of a full ClearView analyzer system to provide easy preparation of content with a simple playback application for repeated and reliable output of uncompressed UHD video and audio.
ClearView Extreme 8K and ClearView Player 8K are the newest additions to Video Clarity’s ClearView line of test and measurement analyzers for A/V quality testing, subjective viewing, recording, and playing virtually any resolution of uncompressed sequences. The product line includes four full-reference human perceptual scoring methods, all of which are based on algorithms that have been developed to measure perceived video and audio quality in a precise way.
RTM 3G Portable
At Inter BEE Video Clarity will showcase a smaller, lighter, rack-mountable RTM 3G real-time monitoring device. This new, portable 2-RU system 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 contribution links, broadcast distribution, 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, which measures video quality with the Emmy Award-winning MS-SSIM metric 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.
For the first time at Inter BEE, Video Clarity will show RTM Scheduler, a new tool for customers who use the company’s RTM real-time monitoring systems. RTM Scheduler allows operators to use a single RTM unit to monitor several programs or channels in a series based on a user-defined schedule.
Although RTM systems monitor a single channel at a time, RTM Scheduler makes it easy for users to program an RTM unit to perform multiple sequential tests, thereby making it possible for a single RTM unit to perform quality measurements and fault-monitoring sessions on several channels. This capability is especially useful when the RTM unit is monitoring an SDI source against an IP-processed source. As a source for the test reference, RTM can select from an IP stream or up to four SDI interfaces sequentially. The RTM unit can then select any processed IP stream (or series of streams) for quality measurement and monitoring on a time and test-length schedule.
“Inter BEE is an event where ground breaking products are introduced for content delivery applications worldwide. It’s the perfect venue for us to launch leading-edge solutions for video quality measurement, monitoring, and analysis.”
