Interra Systems has announced that Los Angeles-based software company Frequency, a leading provider of linear video channel cloud origination services, has deployed Interra Systems' industry-leading ORION and ORION-OTT systems in an AWS cloud environment.

Using Interra Systems' end-to-end, cloud-based solutions, Frequency can efficiently monitor TSoIP contribution feeds while assuring exceptional audio-video quality and stability across its network of hundreds of FAST channels.

"As a provider of cloud-based linear video solutions, Frequency needed a next-generation monitoring platform that was comprehensive, scalable, and had efficient troubleshooting tools," said James Miller, vice president of operations at Frequency. "Interra Systems' ORION and ORION-OTT will allow us to monitor both IP and OTT streams on the cloud, an essential requirement for us, and enable us to keep a strict eye on the quality and stability of each stream delivered, verifying ad marker quality and precision in real time. We are impressed by how well Interra's engineering and support team worked with us to put together a great monitoring solution for Frequency and our customers."

Interra Systems' ORION provides real-time monitoring of IP-based infrastructures that looks at all aspects of video streams, allowing Frequency to deliver error-free, superior-quality video. With ORION and ORION-OTT, Frequency will have a unified and consistent monitoring platform to check for QoS, QoE, and ad-insertion verification monitoring, including SCTE-35 cue messages and post-insertion verification for regulatory compliance. ORION performs critical monitoring functions on hundreds of services simultaneously from a single platform, providing Frequency with a single point of visibility and access to important information such as status, alerts, alarms, visible impairments, error reports, triggered captures, and more. ORION and ORION-OTT's quality checking includes macroblocking, freeze, and black frames, among others. The audio quality checks include loudness, silence, and levels, and support all popular audio formats, including Dolby.

In addition, Frequency is using ORION-OTT to verify QoS and QoE for ABR videos, including checking for inconsistencies related to ABR package compliance, manifest and playlist syntax, download errors, and content quality.

"For broadcast quality, live channel workflows, monitoring is especially critical," said Anupama Anantharaman, vice president, product management, at Interra Systems. "ORION and ORION-OTT will enable Frequency to monitor streams for errors and quality, and end-to-end ad insertions. It's great to see Interra Systems' solutions solving real-world challenges for our customers and allowing them to take advantage of cloud deployments for both IP as well as OTT video."
