In addition to ORION-OTT, Interra Systems will demo its ORION solution for real-time monitoring of linear channels in an IP-based delivery infrastructure.

New ORION 2110 Probe Simplifies IP Monitoring
Part of the ORION product suite, ORION 2110 supports the SMPTE ST 2110 standard, providing broadcasters with a future-proof, end-to-end monitoring solution for assuring exceptional video quality in an IP distribution environment.

OCM provides enterprise-wide visibility of video by enabling central management of multiple ORION linear and ORION-OTT setups present at the same or diverse geographic locations. By providing a consolidated, single-screen view of both linear and OTT workflows, OCM makes error detection and isolation faster and more efficient. OCM's new features include smart tools and exportable reports for channel performance and alert trending; scheduled tasks to export reports; the capability to add comments, root cause, resolution to alerts and define maintenance downtimes to ignore unnecessary alerts; REST APIs to assure seamless third-party system integration; quality reports with daily and monthly channel availability; as well as outage analytics.

New Streaming High Speed Cameras Posted: 26/09/2022
Phoenix

During the pandemic, most of us had two choices. Identifying parts of our business that we can accelerate, or nothing! At IDT, we chose the former, so we have just launched a new product range, and have three (yes, three) more coming shortly.
High speed cameras have traditionally been at the specialist end of the camera spectrum, with short sequences being recorded to RAM, and an interruption in workflow required before the next captured sequence. Minor improvements to this basic workflow have been implemented, like segmenting the RAM (which shorten each sequence, and still require a download later on), or having on board SSD, for faster downloads.
