Introducing RTM 3G and Auto RTM at NAB 2013

Advanced Capabilities Added to Real-Time Monitoring (RTM) Product Line


Las Vegas, Nevada, April 8, 2013 at NAB booth #SU11004: Video Clarity, Inc. a leading provider of audio/video quality monitoring and analysis solutions introduces the new RTM 3G real-time monitor/recorder and the new automated quality test solution, Auto RTM. These solutions add a new high performance model to the RTM product line and Auto RTM provides a multichannel, scalable solution for automated television program and VOD asset testing for picture and audio quality.

RTM 3G provides the ability to analyze 1080p50/59.94/60 progressive-scan video signals, which are increasingly being used for high-performance studio and video contribution applications. With this enhanced capability, the new RTM 3G system can provide long-term quality monitoring of live and pre-recorded 3 Gbps content to detect subtle long-term errors. Major broadcasters, system integrators and equipment manufacturers can utilize the RTM system on active facilities carrying live traffic, allowing testing to be performed continuously.

Auto RTM allows users to create sophisticated test scripts to automatically monitor a sequence of files and streams without user intervention. This capability is particularly useful for testing multiple versions of video streams that are created for HTTP streaming applications such as Apple ® HLS and Microsoft ® Smooth Streaming. Auto RTM can also be used to asses file-based assets such as VOD content libraries.

Blake Homan, President of Video Clarity said, “Many of our customers use RTM to perform long-term, in-service testing. RTM is ideal for detecting subtle errors that accumulate over time, such as audio/video clock discrepancies that can build up to cause noticeable lip-sync issues. Our customers also like that RTM will work with any kind of content, including live programs, pre-recorded content, SDI signals, and IP streams.”

RTM 3G is available directly from Video Clarity or an authorized distributor.
