Streaming Ahead in 2020

Content brings in subscribers; quality retains them.

We help you understand the viewer experience and deliver the quality subscribers expect, while reducing costs.

Deliver viewer experiences that are second to none.

Whether you’re a content owner, broadcaster, streaming service or an aggregator (MVPD), we can help you accelerate your video delivery business in four key areas:

Validate and Manage HDR Quality

Our HDR Viewer Check helps to:
  • Ensure preservation of HDR content
  • Detect where and why content degrades 
  • Know the impact of processing from “As Graded” to Mezzanine files down to the viewer
