Technology built for the explosion of video.
More complex delivery due to:
. . . more people watching
. . . more content and services
. . . on more devices and players
. . . with more formats and codecs
Maximizing the Viewer Experience requires a new approach. We take all this complexity and turn it into powerful knowledge with the SSIMPLUS Viewer Score: the one number that tells you everything you need to know about the subscriber’s Viewer Experience.
We’ve mapped the human visual system.
For the first time in history, SSIMWAVE has brought the capability to virtualize and measure how humans perceive video and apply it in real-world environments.
Golden eyes and subjective studies can’t keep up with today’s fragmented video ecosystem. SSIMWAVE has mapped the human visual system to produce the most accurate measure of perceptual quality ever engineered with >90% correlation to Mean Opinion Score.
SSIMPLUS harnesses Viewer IntelligenceTM to provide fast, accurate and consistent measurements at every point from source to screen – through every delivery system, on every device, using a consistent 0-100 linear scoring metric. An apples to apples comparison for any internal and external hand-off point.
The SSIMPLUS® Viewer Score is the most accurate Viewer Experience metric ever engineered.
It is easy to understand but behind the scenes it accounts for a variety of different:
- Content complexities (even scene-by-scene variations)
- Frame rates
- Dynamic ranges (HDR, SDR)
- Devices (from handhelds to the biggest and best TVs)
Respected and Revolutionary.
