CUPERTINO and SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Aug. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Interra Systems and Envivio (Nasdaq:ENVI) today announced the integration of the Interra Baton™ file-based quality check (QC) solution with the recently introduced Envivio Muse™ On-Demand 3.50 and 4Balancer™ software. This collaboration helps to ensure high quality VOD asset creation in the right formats for various playout devices in today's multi-screen environment, facilitating service expansion and the monetization of VOD on any screen. "Today's consumers increasingly expect content anytime, anywhere, and prefer entertainment to fit in their schedule. Service providers need to ensure the best possible quality for their VOD assets in order to gain a competitive edge. Baton not only offers broad format support and quality checks; its content verification is also very reliable and accurate. This integration provides our content and service provider customers with an outstanding solution for transcoding and QC," said Boris Felts, vice president of product marketing at Envivio. Content ingested into the VOD environment needs to meet quality and regulatory specifications. In addition, content transcoded for different devices—including TVs, PCs, tablets, gaming systems and smartphones—needs to meet the playout specification for the various output formats. The combination of Envivio's Muse On-Demand encoding and the Interra Baton file-based QC solution ensure content quality, formats and standards compliance for the ever-changing video ecosystem. "Envivio is a market leader in video compression, and we are very pleased to be associated with the Muse On-Demand solutions. Baton has helped more that 20+ technologies in the ecosystem leverage file-based QC in their solutions – asset management systems, archive solutions, transcoders, and more. We look forward to collaborating with Envivio in deploying solutions that provide outstanding quality for VOD services," said Ashish Basu, VP global sales and business development at Interra Systems.
