Sportsman Channel, which is devoted to outdoor enthusiasts in the United States, has selected Interra Systems' Baton platform as its file-based quality control (QC) solution, assuring content quality of its sports video for broadcast.

"We are an outdoor lifestyle network that features a growing line-up of exclusive programming focused on the lifestyle of American sportsmen and sportswomen," said Don Hertz, manager of video operations at Sportsman Channel. "Sportsman Channel delivers entertaining and educational programming and therefore content quality becomes very important to continue to grow our distribution and viewership. Adopting a file-based QC solution was a natural progression in this direction. Interra's Baton offers us the best automated, file-based QC to handle our diverse content," he explained.

Added Brad Lilian, sales director at Interra Systems: "As an industry standard in file-based QC, Baton offers the best range of format support, quality checks and verification options. The adoption of Baton by an exclusive sports channel confirms Baton as the file-based QC of choice for media companies globally.
