SSIMPLUS first to be certified for Dolby Vision-enabled content
Following a series of extensive tests, SSIMWAVE’s SSIMPLUS is the first viewer experience solution to receive approval from Dolby Laboratories. The certification was approved for its ability to decode Dolby Vision-enabled content.
When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver colours in incredible contrasts on screens; its highlights are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks are 10 times darker.
SSIMWAVE supports Dolby Vision content by monitoring quality across the distribution ecosystem, enabling media companies to quickly identify and resolve quality issues in workflows.
Furthermore, SSIMPLUS supports clients to deliver HDR content as intended by optimising technology decisions across a delivery chain, and the SSIMPLUS Viewer Score measures the preservation of creative intent by comparing encoded content to its source.
“Dolby Vision is one of the most common standards used by the industry to deliver HDR content as intended,” said Dr Abdul Rehman, CEO and co-founder of SSIMWAVE. “As video experience becomes more and more important as a differentiator, content owners, delivery and service providers are demanding independent verification that their viewers are receiving the video quality they expect and deserve.”
SSIMWAVE will be demonstrating its ability to inspect and evaluate Dolby Vision content during its “Virtual Demo Days” in June. More information on the virtual event is available HERE.
