Turner Entertainment Networks implements Tektronix Cerify for quality verification of file-based compressed video and audio
Turner Entertainment Networks (TEN) has successfully implemented multiple Tektronix Cerify systems, fully automated systems capable of verifying the quality of file-based, compressed digital video and audio content prior to transmission. TEN has one of the world’s largest all-digital broadcast facilities. Cerify ensures the quality of broadcast through consistent and thorough checks of incoming compressed digital video.
Manual inspection is resource-intensive and can be prone to error. Cerify fully tests all aspects of a digital audio and video file to ensure that it meets system parameters, formats, resolutions, bit rates, video/audio quality levels, metadata and compliance/correctness to a wide range of specified video and audio standards. Cerify can automatically check all of these, providing a repeatable, objective and cost-effective testing methodology.
