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 features include support for monitoring of contribution stream formats (SRT/RIST), enhanced video dropout detection, and new audio quality checks (i.e., audio jitter, true peak levels, audio clipping, and stereo pair absence).
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 (ORION Central Manager) for End-to-End Video Visibility
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.
