Harmonic Demonstrates End-to-End
IP Playout and Content Distribution
H

armonic, a worldwide leader in
video delivery infrastructure,
hosted and participated in an
Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS)
interoperability demonstration at NAB
on the company's booth, with other
technology
innovators,
including
Arista, Embrionix, LAWO, Tektronix and
Vizrt.
Harmonic
and
its
partners
demonstrated unique uncompressed
IP interoperability for a complete
playout chain. The workflow will
feature live source inputs, complex
graphics workflow, network time
sync, low-latency monitoring, playout
with full channel-in-a-box workflow
and automation control with traffic
integration, and broadcast encoding
delivering emission-ready transport
streams for terrestrial, satellite, cable
and OTT delivery.
"Being able to scale and adapt in
a rapidly changing environment,
along with having the flexibility

for
configuration
and
management, is absolutely
critical
today,"
said
Andy Warman, Director,
Production and Playout
Strategy and Market Development, at
Harmonic, AIMS board member, and
chair of the AIMS marketing working
group.
Warman said that the demonstration
showed a leading-edge end-to-end
playout and distribution workflow on
an IT network infrastructure.
"Working in the IP realm,
broadcasters can provision network
resources, tweak their workflow,
add new channels and support
higher resolutions without the need
to roll out proprietary interfaces or
infrastructure," he said.
AIMS promotes a comprehensive set
of standards for migrating from SDI to
all-IP workflows. The demonstration
at the 2017 NAB Show by Harmonic
and its ecosystem partners illustrated

how interoperable IP interconnectivity
can deliver reliable, flexible real-world
workflows.
The workflow shown included
an Arista Networks switch and
EOS operating system, a Tektronix
PRISM hybrid IP/SDI media analysis
platform and a SPG8000A precision
multiformat master sync and PTP
grandmaster clock generator, a
LAWO V__link4 video over IP solution
for signal transport and processing,
Embrionix SDI-to-IP small form-factor
pluggable (SFP) modules, a Vizrt Viz
Trio CG system, and Spectrum X media
server and Electra X2 media processor
from Harmonic.
All of the technologies in the demo
met SMPTE ST 2022-6 (transport
of SDI over IP) and SMPTE ST 2059
(PTP-based timing) specifications,

Harmonic Electra X2 media processor

and possessed the capability to adapt
to future standards, such as SMPTE
ST 2110, to enable next-generation
production and playout workflows.
Harmonic's Spectrum X and Electra
X2 include both SDI and IP I/O on the
same chassis, easing the migration to
IP workflows.
Harmonic is a worldwide leader
in video delivery infrastructure
for emerging television and video
services.
Harmonic
enables
customers
to produce, deliver and monetise
amazing video experiences, with
unequalled business agility and
operational efficiency, by providing
market-leading innovation, highquality service and compelling totalcost-of-ownership.

NOA Improves Workflow Efficiency
with Enhanced QualityChecker
N

OA has introduced an enhanced
version of its QualityChecker for
jobDB and mediARC, the first in-house
developed QC evaluation tool for NOA.
The system allows QC engineers to
load open QC tasks directly within the
standalone application QualityChecker
to facilitate easy job separation
between ingest and technical QC. Job
separation streamlines the entire
digitisation process reducing overall
ingest cost operation substantially.
NOA QualityChecker provides frameexact navigation through ingested
material as well as different video
settings such as de-interlacing and
field order settings to ensure correct
replay and transcoding. Easy shortcuts
allow for quick segmenting of ingested
material and swift navigation to
improve and refine quality control
activities. Configurable presets allow
further audio track shuffling, mixdown,
and uplift (amplification) of the target
file.
"With NOA QualityChecker, QC

personnel
are
provided
with a comprehensive and
fully
implemented
tool
developed by NOA for dayto-day quality check and
segmentation work steps
without the need for third
party video players. A number
of new features ensure
correct replay behaviour as
well as correction thereof.
The real benefit is bringing
down the cost of the overall business
process ensuring highest productivity
at the ingest stations and moving
intellectual decisions and corrections
to a later business process step," says
Jean-Christophe Kummer, Managing
Partner.
NOA took on the task of developing
its own QC evaluation tool to optimise
workflows and enhance the process
quality of the most demanding
projects.
Key features of NOA QualityChecker
include:

NOA has enhanced QualityChecker

*	 Integration of ISR/RF reports
forwarded from FrameLector;
*	 Annotation of audio roles (for
audio role shuffling);
*	 Correction of video content (such
as field order and aspect ratio);
*	 Segmentation of video content for
head/tail cropping.
NOA QualityChecker, a part of NOA's
actLINE product family, is provided
as an upgrade or extension to any
existing and future video digitisation
projects with FrameLector in jobDB or
mediARC environments.

NOA
delivers
scalable,
high-quality AV digitising and
archiving innovations to make
audio and video archives easily
available in enterprise storage
facilities.
Sustainable
long-term
preservation of media content
is guaranteed as NOA's unique
products rely on open archival
standards and formats, and
continuous checks for transfer
integrity to ensure highest possible
quality of audio and video content.
NOA's turnkey solutions deliver
systems to meet the specific needs of
any business.
ingestLINE, actLINE, jobDB, mediARC
and the entry level Pico systems
safeguard future media accessibility
and enterprise-wide collaboration.
Advanced
semantic
metadata
management ensures NOA's family of
products deliver efficient and reliable
identification and retrieval of archival
content.
