Tektronix unveils automated verification system for file-based digital video

During NAB2006 in Las Vegas, Tektronix introduced Cerify, a fully automated system capable of verifying the quality of file-based, compressed digital video and audio content prior to transmission or use.

Compressed digital content is complex and can use different standards, resolutions, formats and metadata that must be accurately specified and encoded if the content is going to reach the end-viewer and be played correctly. With this system, the broadcaster knows the content is correct before it is transmitted.

Today, broadcasters face a wide variety of technical challenges and changes in workflow. Complicating the process are continual technology updates prompted by new digital codecs and formats. Regardless of the codec or format being used, maintaining content quality and consistency is critical for commercial success.

Tektronix Cerify fully tests all aspects of stored compressed video and audio quality to ensure it meets the system parameters, formats, resolutions, bit rates, video- and audio-quality levels, and compliance and correctness to a wide-range of specified video and audio standards.
