Interra Systems has announced a cloud-enabled integration of its BATON file-based quality control solution with the Evertz Mediator X media asset management platform.

The goal is to simplify the automation of QC for media developers, producers and distributors. Seamless integration between BATON and Mediator enables media enterprises to automatically perform QC checks on media files during each stage of the workflow, on-premise or in the cloud, providing instant alerts and reports on issues.

"Operational efficiency improves when traditionally manual QC workflows are replaced with high-quality automated QC solutions," said Dan Turow, vice president of file-based solutions at Evertz. "By joining forces with Interra Systems, we help our customers deliver high-quality content on every screen, in the most efficient way possible."

BATON is a cloud-enabled solution that offers comprehensive quality checks, enterprise-wide scalability, and verification efficiency. Using the QC solution, media providers can support a wide range of media formats and perform quality checks, including extensive subtitles and closed caption verification, audio language identification, PSE correction, and loudness detection and correction. BATON's Media Player offers frame-accurate review, rich QC analytics and smart workflow tools.

Meanwhile, the Evertz Mediator X media asset management and workflow platform, with its integrated Playtime multichannel playout and Pilot studio control options, includes tools to repurpose and deliver multi-format content.

"As an entirely software-based and cloud-enabled solution, BATON ensures content readiness across a workflow through integration with Evertz Mediator X via API," added Vijeta Kashyap, vice president of operations at Interra. "We look forward to taking the collaboration with Evertz to the next level and providing customers with integrated solutions that lead to better monetisation."
