Driven to advance the business of video.
SSIMWAVE is the creator of the Video Experience Automation category enabling assessment of video quality at scale. We know that managing lean production workflows to deliver better viewer experiences without reprocessing and high variable costs, is not simple. Ensuring high video quality is difficult when QA and optimization tools are expensive to operate and often do not correlate well to human vision.
Our Video Experience Automation Platform connects to your workflow and operationalizes viewer experience data to remove the guesswork and inconsistency from manual QA and validation processes. By plugging into your existing workflow, the Video Experience Automation Platform allows your quality assurance function to be scaled beyond non-metric-based processes.
Using APIs, our Video Experience Automation Platform interfaces with all existing video encoding, processing, and distribution workflows, answering questions like, what should the optimum bitrate be for my files and streams? Do I need a full QC on every stream or file? What is the best method to measure visual quality losses between my source, mezzanine, and compressed files? How can I ensure the highest quality is always delivered to my viewers?
Our two-time Emmy-awarded SSIMPLUS® algorithm is the most accurate viewer experience metric ever engineered. It is the foundation for our VQ Dial and Video Intelligence Suite products that enable media companies to be 100% confident that their D2C services and distribution partners deliver content at the quality level that you have specified.
The SSIMWAVE Video Experience Automation Platform is used by organizations and Hollywood’s top studios to address video issues across all files and streams, including:
- Better video quality at a lower cost by removing wasted delivery spends.
- Provide a more consistent experience regardless of the playback device or network.
- Validate third-party content quality per SLA.
- Identify and correct subpar source assets or streams.
- Alert and remedy issues impacting viewer experience.

Let's shape the future of video together.
Digital communication has transformed consumer expectations so much that just delivering video is not enough. When things do not go as expected, people abandon the experience. We built SSIMWAVE to take full advantage of Viewer Intelligence® to deliver The Ultimate Viewing Experience® to any screen, anywhere, anytime.
