File-based digital media has the potential for content monetization and operational efficiencies. Content monetization potential increases with a growing list of target consumer platforms. Operational efficiency improves when correct content is assured, guaranteed despite multiple transformations across various stages of the content lifecycle.
The content needs to be repeatedly verified for Quality Control (QC) extending beyond basic QC to Enterprise QC. Enterprise QC includes Comprehensive Quality Checks to verify a wide variety of content transformations as well as Enterprise Scalability to handle any content on any platform without interruptions. Interra Systems’ BATON is the industry’s leading enterprise-class file-based QC solution. BATON has been deployed in production use by global media companies of all sizes. Major broadcasters, post-production houses, IPTV, satellite and archiving companies use BATON for QC every day for its thorough list of quality checks and enterprise-wide scalability.
FileCatalyst provides the ability to send digital content securely and reliably at accelerated rates, resulting in transfers that used to take hours or days happening in minutes regardless of file size or format. The software’s patent-pending UDP-based technology executes transfers at rates up to 10 Gbps despite potential network impairments, such as latency or packet loss, which ensures file quality throughout the quality control workflow.
The FileCatalyst and BATON integration seamlessly automates QC workflows by accelerating content uploads to BATON for quality checks. BATON then ensures readiness across all stages of the workflow before delivering the highest quality content to the customers. The FileCatalyst and BATON integration provides accelerated workflows at the fastest speeds possible for large digital media content transfers.
