Tektronix Bestows Cerify Developer Community Award on ScheduALL

Broadcast software provider ScheduALL has received a Cerify Developer Community (CDC) award from test-and-measurement giant Tektronix. The award recognizes companies that have undertaken development work and support of key customer projects in the move to tapeless/file-based production.

Other award recipients include S4M and overall CDC award winner Pro-Bel. All three are members of the CDC, an expanding group of companies that have been working together for more than a year to help broadcasters maximize the benefits of moving to a file-based workflow.

“ScheduALL won this award for its work in integrating its broadcast resource management system with Tektronix Cerify systems using the CeriTalk control interface. Its efforts will ensure that its broadcast customers can fully capitalize on the benefits of file-based production and playout,” said Simon Begent, marketing and operations manager for Cerify at Tektronix. “By using Cerify, broadcasters can ensure that their material is correct in terms of encoding, data structure, and video/audio baseband quality. Cerify is one of a new generation of Tektronix video test and monitoring tools designed to help companies meet the challenges of the new digital world.”

Tektronix’s Cerify is a fully automated system to verify the quality of file-based, compressed digital video and audio content prior to transmission or use, testing content to ensure that it meets a wide range of system parameters, formats, resolutions, bit-rates, video/audio quality levels and metadata, and compliance/correctness.
