Innovations On Display at BroadcastAsia 2024:

Streamlining QC Workflows With BATON At BroadcastAsia 2024, attendees will have the chance to experience the latest version of Interra Systems’ BATON solution. Equipped with cutting-edge AI and machine learning (ML) capabilities, this updated version continues to set the standard for automated QC platforms, meeting the most rigorous demands for quality and compliance.

The solution boasts a range of new enhancements, including the new BATON 9.0 engine, which introduces significant framework updates — including NGINX server, Python 3.x, and Postgres. In addition, users can expect optimized MXF file verification alongside a sophisticated diagnostic tool for system health monitoring. API improvements, such as REST and XML-RPC, provide enhanced integration capabilities, while the Auto-Expansion feature sees notable enhancements.

BATON now also offers advanced video quality checks, detecting unwanted frames, field order discrepancies, video dropout, ghosting, black bars, video signal integrity, and black levels. For ensuring comprehensive audio quality assessment across all multimedia elements, further enhancements include Nielsen watermarking detection and audio loudness monitoring, among other features.

Extensive optimizations to Interra Systems’ BATON Media Player simplify how media professionals can play, inspect, and verify audio and video content, which include a revamped user interface, keyboard shortcut options, enhanced real-time playback of UHD content, and other improvements on the usability front.

BATON Captions leverages cutting-edge ML and automatic speech recognition technology to streamline caption-related tasks for broadcasters and media professionals. Its functionalities include comprehensive QC and correction, live-to-VOD repurposing, postproduction editing, and localization for different geographies for the global distribution of media. Recent enhancements shown at BroadcastAsia 2024 will include support for web-based players with rich text editing, on-premises translation support for 108 languages, SAML integration, and support for timestamping.

Improving QoS and QoE With ORION Content Monitoring New ORION and ORION-OTT capabilities extend to a diverse range of deployment scenarios spanning both hybrid and cloud environments, catering to linear broadcast, IP-based delivery infrastructures, and live/VOD OTT content. Other recent enhancements include localization features, certification on the latest operating system releases RHEL 8.8 and Rocky 8.8, support for Dolby Atmos, and the addition of options for SAML-based single sign-on for enhanced security.
