Video Clarity To Exhibit At SMPTE 2017

News Image
Video Clarity has announced that it will demonstrate a number of its products and solutions at SMPTE 2017 next week.

One of the products on display will be the ClearView Venue Player. This is a video server that can be controlled to automatically play multiple uncompressed segments of high-quality content to multiple screens in precise timing and sequence. The Venue Player is designed for broadcast facilities, theme parks, live events, staged shows, and other environments that rely on repeated, synchronized video playback for entertainment and display. It offers several recording and playback configurations, from standard definition to 8K, with multiple storage sizes.

Users can automatically and interactively select sequences for playback in multiple video formats on up to eight screens at once using a show controller, its command line interface, or a desktop control interface. These control interfaces allow segments to play from one or multiple Venue Players according to specific timing and order of recall, and synchronized with devices and effects.

The Venue Player also contains setup and control functionality courtesy of Venue Player Manager, a web server for browser-based control on a networked computer or tablet. Venue Player users can set up, jog, shuttle, play, rewind, and queue the output of each system from anywhere with an internet or internal facility network connection to one or multiple Venue Players. Browser-based control gives users in both venues and broadcast test labs an easier way to manage playback on multiple screens.

Also on show will be Video Clarity's RTM real-time audio and video monitor. RTM includes MPEG transport stream (TS) recording, which records out-of-threshold uncompressed video and audio and simultaneously captures the same error segments in the corresponding transport streams. Another feature is IP-network packet-loss monitoring. With this, RTM continuously monitors the attached video network to assess network conditions and graphs the results so that users can immediately see the effects of any packet loss on video quality, which in turn might influence the RTM score and the error recordings being saved. In general, the TS record and IP packet-loss monitoring features help users determine if errors are rooted in either the MPEG transport layer or the IP network.

In addition, RTM has a built-in uncompressed video playback feature for monitoring and testing, meaning that it can play full-HD video to the device or network under test at the same time it is comparing that video to its downstream processed version. It also provides an independent record function for ingesting video sequences that, after recording, may be played at the time of the RTM test routine. The play and record functions eliminate the need for extra player hardware, saving users money and space.

At the Macnica Technology/PacketStorm Communications booth at SMPTE 2017 will be Video Clarity's ClearView analyzer. ClearView is a test and measurement analyzer for audio and video quality measurement, subjective viewing, recording and comparatively playing up to two 8K UHD uncompressed sequences.

Video Clarity will also participate in the IP Showcase at SMPTE 2017. Attendees of the conference will be able to see the company's ClearView Venue Player and RTM real-time audio and video monitor in action in the showcase.
