Baton is an automated, file-based QC solution from Interra Systems.
The installation of Baton allows the South Korean broadcast provider to perform video and audio checks as well as compliance verification
CUDO Mediacan, a South Korean broadcast provider of multiple TV channels, has deployed Interra Systems’ Baton to speed up its quality control process. In addition, the installation of Baton also enables CUDO Mediacan to improve content quality by providing extensive video and audio checks, compliance verification, and integration with third-party equipment.
Prior to deploying Baton, Seo Gi Min, deputy head of department at CUDO Mediacan, revealed that the network’s QC process was “entirely manual”, limiting its ability to scale up operations during periods of growth and perform in-depth verification of content. “Baton automates our quality control activities, allowing us to deliver quality content consistently to viewers,” he added.
Baton is integrated with a SeaChange video server to enable content verification and playout from Mediacan’s broadcast distribution facilities. Besides ensuring “smooth QC operations” for Mediacan, Baton also provides support for a wide range of media formats, in-depth audio and video checks, and high availability.
Additionally, Mediacan is using Baton alongside the Baton Media Player (BMP), a media player from Interra Systems that is equipped with options for SDI playout, for “fast, frame-accurate” manual review of content.
Kanishka Tonga, director of sales, APAC and MEA, at Interra Systems, concluded: “Our Baton QC solution is specifically designed to provide speed, scalability and ease of use in enterprise video environments, and that’s why it’s trusted by broadcasters worldwide. Relying on Baton, Mediacan can rest easy in knowing that its content will always be of the highest quality and in compliance with all industry regulations.”
