It’s impossible to keep an eye on video quality for all your content. Until now.
SSIMPLUS monitors video quality across all devices, resolutions, formats, networks and services, 24/7. Our software probes are your “eyes” for every stage of your workflow or delivery chain.
Here are the most common pain points we can help you with:
Understand the Viewer Experience at any point in your chain and make informed decisions.
Quantify the impact of every process and parameter on the Viewer Experience for both SDR and HDR content by looking into your video delivery chain from glass to glass. Detect issues like banding, encoding impairments, A/V sync, macroblocking, video freeze, and many more with SSIMPLUS, the most accurate Viewer Experience metric.
Link video player data with the SSIMPLUS Viewer Score to understand how Viewer Experience impacts viewership. Reduce churn on SVOD and increase both subscribers and viewing time on AVOD/LIVE.
Compare the Viewer Experience over a variety of services (D2C and OTT, IPTV, cable, satellite) or workflow segments to ensure a consistent Viewer Experience and optimize distribution costs.
Understand how each part of the LIVE delivery chain is impacting the Viewer Experience – from the stadium trucks to the end-user device.
Improve the day-to-day performance of your video delivery chain to achieve efficiencies and savings.
Measure video quality across your Live/VOD workflows at scale with Pass/Fail Viewer Experience thresholds in order to catch and fix quality degradations.
Lowering costs while achieving desired Viewer Experience levels is no longer wishful thinking. Select the perfect balance of quality and cost for your VOD workflow. Select the best conditions (encoder, bitrate, etc) on a per asset or scene basis to optimize your delivery costs and delight viewers.
Stop bad video in its tracks by measuring the Viewer Experience for all incoming LIVE or VOD assets. Don’t waste resources processing content with a subpar SSIMPLUS Viewer Score.
Measure content before and after suppliers/distributors touch it to quickly find the root cause for any quality degradation. Use the SSIMPLUS metric as a quality currency to exchange assets, optimize partner coordination and simplify agreements.
Realize savings & monetize better while keeping the Viewer Experience at desired levels.
Reduce bitrates and costs by at least 20% by creating the optimal ABR ladders for your assets, using desired Viewer Experience thresholds.
Group channels by encoding complexity and distribute your resources accordingly. Save on low-complexity content or tune quality up where needed. Have more channels per Statmux or dynamically allocate resources in the cloud.
Adapt the Master Manifest to deliver the targeted quality for each device and asset; and nothing more. Reduce costs while maintaining a quality tailored to the viewing conditions.
Our proprietary SSIMPLUS® algorithm is the most accurate viewer experience metric ever engineered, with >90% correlation to Mean Opinion Score. The SSIMPLUS Viewer Score is a linear 0-100 metric that provides a common language and benchmark for all players in the video industry. Its fast, lightweight AI capabilities help you control video delivery costs, and inform decisions.
In an age where consumers have more media and entertainment choices than ever, SSIMPLUS ensures you deliver the video quality your subscribers expect – and deserve.
