Tektronix CYSW CH overview

  • 1Description

The Tektronix Additional Cerify Single-Channel Software License provides access to Automatic quality control software for file-based video. It supports up to 100 channels per CYSW.

Quality control of file-based video that may be ingested from different sources and encoded at different bit rates, formats, and compression standards for SD/HD, VOD, and IPTV delivery presents considerable operational challenges. Manual inspection can playout, watch, and listen but is subjective and cannot look inside the encoding to check that the correct syntax and parameters that have been used.

It can be easily integrated with automation and asset management systems using the CeriTalk API. The XML-based test templates can be exchanged between Cerify systems and applied as the definition of the required test standards between the suppliers and broadcasters to establish Service-level Agreements.

  • Provides exception-based technical compliance to enable the QC teams to focus only on the problem content and the subjective requirements
  • Performs consistent and thorough checks of incoming video files against user-defined templates
