Video Clarity Introduces PEAQ for ClearView

Campbell, CA, April 11, 2011 – Video Clarity, Inc. today announced that PEAQ audio objective perceptual quality measurement is a new feature offered with the ClearView family of products.  (
The ITU-R PEAQ (Perceptual Evaluation of Audio Quality) model is an “electronic ear” which performs an objective measurement of perceived quality of wideband (up to 20 kHz) audio signals using a computerized model of the human ear.  This well accepted perceptual audio quality measurement method was developed jointly by experts from eight leading research laboratories and is an international ITU-R standard (ITU-R Recommendation BS.1387, “Method for objective measurements of perceived audio quality”).

The PEAQ model processes two audio signals to be compared (namely the original reference signal and a test version to be evaluated)
and calculates a quality score similar to the mean opinion score that would be obtained from a formal subjective test.

The Video Clarity ClearView system provides a full implementation of the ITU-R PEAQ model which has been certified by the Communications Research Centre Canada, one of the laboratories that developed the ITU-R PEAQ method.

PEAQ is available with ClearView 7.0 coming in Q2, 2011

See a demonstration of PEAQ at NAB in Video Clarity booth SU7508 from April 11 through 14

ClearView is available direct from Video Clarity or one of our partners.
