WRAL Relies on Video Clarity RTM to Monitor Output
Campbell, CA, April 08, 2011 – Video Clarity, Inc., a leading provider of visual test analysis equipment, announced that WRAL has chosen RTM as their choice for a real-time AV monitor-recorder. RTM from Video Clarity will empower WRAL to improve their home viewer's quality of experience.
WRAL monitors their outbound Master Control Output versus one or more alternative home distribution services (cable, IPTV or DTH satellite) using the Video Clarity RTM. RTM non-intrusively measures the quality, logs statistics, and alarms on A/V distortions and Lip Sync drifts.
"We are continuously challenged to ensure that our customers receive the best video quality experience,," said Pete Socket, Director of Engineering Operations for WRAL."Using Video Clarity's RTM, we can collect statistics and review recordings of our transmission versus the several alternative delivery services and assure quality viewing".
RTM saves valuable man-hours by vigilantly monitoring streams measuring A/V quality. RTM alarms on degraded A/V quality and saves the streams around the degradation for future engineering studies, while continually monitoring A/V Sync (Lip Sync) and providing statistics of the quality scores. RTM operates without injecting additional data and thus requires no special content formatting.
"We are very pleased to provide WRAL with a solution for evaluating their transmission path," said Blake Homan, President of Video Clarity. "The fact that WRAL has adopted RTM confirms that our solutions are becoming an indispensable tool in broadcast station operations.”
RTM is available today from Video Clarity or one of our partners.
