We know that managing lean production workflows to deliver better viewer experiences without reprocessing and high variable costs, is not simple. Ensuring an optimum balance between video quality and bitrate is difficult when QA and optimization tools are expensive to operate and often do not correlate well to human vision. 

A 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 the content creation, contribution, distribution, and delivery steps, your quality assurance function can be scaled beyond non-metric-based processes so that you can deliver a reliable quality of experience to your distributors and subscribers.

The SSIMWAVE Experience Automation Platform uses APIs to act as a control plane for your existing video encoding, processing, and distribution workflows to answer 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?

Assuring consistent video experience in a cost-effective way can be a challenge when you don’t manage the entire distribution chain. And we understand that the variety of environments that your video passes through could not be more diverse. From SVOD to Pay TV, to vMVPD and social networks, the technical requirements and business model variations can heavily impact the final visual quality.

The Emmy-awarded SSIMPLUS® algorithm is the most accurate viewer experience metric ever engineered and it is the foundation of our Video Experience Automation Platform. The core products include our Stream Smart and Video Intelligence Suite that enable media companies to be 100% confident that their D2C services and distribution partners are delivering your content at the quality level that you have specified.

How the SSIMWAVE Video Experience Automation Platform is used by organizations just like yours to address video quality issues across the entire library and all streams, including:

  • The removal of wasted delivery spends so that users receive a consistent video experience regardless of the playback device or network.
  • To validate third-party content quality per the SLA.
