T homson Video Networks will showcase
innovations that enable broadcasters to
maintain their high video quality standards
and evolve seamlessly, cost-effectively, and
profitably as new live video paradigms emerge.
Innovations on display will include the company’s
Ultra HD playout solution powered by HEVC
compression; premium compression systems
for DVB-T2 terrestrial TV that deliver the most
comprehensive channel line-ups and highest
video quality; a new cloud-friendly platform for
clean transmissions over the Internet as well
as in ground-to-ground contribution; and a
visionary new strategy to deliver both premium
and high-density multi-channel content in a
single architecture combining cloud, virtual, and
exidia will demonstrate Nexidia QC v2.3, an automated,
file-based QC application that can automatically test
critical components of media with proprietary technology
-- tests that, until now, could only be performed manually.
Nexidia QC contains unique tests to verify that closed
captions are not only present, but
also correct in terms of content,
completeness, and timing, which no
other media QC application can do.
Additionally, Nexidia QC can report on
the presence of video descriptions and
can identify the audio languages that
are present with the media. Nexidia QC
automates manual processes to reduce
operating expenses, automatically
identifies and corrects caption timing
errors to avoid regulatory fines, and
enables a higher-quality experience for
viewers across all platforms.
