ClearView Extreme 4K Video-Quality Analyzers
IBC2013 will see the European debut of Video Clarity's ClearView Extreme 4K video-quality analyzers, which provide a new level of input/output capability and performance in subjective picture-quality comparison.
With the continuing advancement of new coding algorithms for entertainment program delivery and new processing devices for flat-panel televisions, the ClearView quality analyzer solutions allow researchers in broadcast and consumer product manufacturing to understand the generational and picture-quality potential of new 4K formats. These requirements also extend into engineering departments in television broadcasting, cable, and IPTV program-delivery networks.
The new products are capable of interactive playback and comparison of two uncompressed 4K (3840 X 2160) sequences at up to 60 Hz in real time. With the easy-to-use ClearView solution, users can import and play A/V sequence files to compare processed video to original sources with new 8- and 10-bit high-resolution displays, and also to test for perceptual video quality.
RTM 3G With Adaptive Bit-Rate Testing Capabilities
At IBC2013, Video Clarity will showcase the latest generation of its RTM real-time audio and video monitoring solution for use in home TV service operational control rooms, manufacturer research and development labs, and at the television network headend. RTM 3G has capabilities that allow users to test the quality of any delivered service bit rate or resolution that is deployed either from broadcast interfaces or IP networks to ensure that service and product performance levels are understood before content and product are offered to the market.
In a first for the industry, RTM 3G features DMOS, a full-resolution, full-reference-quality human perceptual measurement performed in real time. DMOS allows users to view a channel's quality without the complexity of having to set up one or multiple recordings to score the quality. Another RTM 3G multiscreen, multiresolution testing capability is automatic recording of unacceptable video and audio, a feature that generates quality score logs upon quality measurement threshold breaks. RTM 3G also enables multiple audio and video measurements in one system at the same time, and users get a high degree of accuracy because recordings are in the uncompressed domain.
"At Video Clarity we continue to bring the most advanced analysis tools to the broadcast market. At IBC we will showcase the latest enhancements to our RTM real-time monitoring system and our new ClearView Extreme 4K video-quality analyzers."
