Venera Technologies has announced interoperability with AWS Elemental, for supporting video quality in a cloud-based video workflow.

awselemental 1 feb 2018Video providers need a scalable and cost-effective way to convert and package video content into various formats, while ensuring optimal video quality from acquisition to delivery. Aiming to address these concerns, the companies say that thanks to the interop, file-based video workflows they can combine Quasar and AWS Elemental MediaConvert to power content library conversion and creation of on-demand assets for broadcast and multiscreen delivery.

AWS Media Services are cloud-based services with pay-as-you-go pricing, which provide customers the capability to ingest, process, package and deliver video content at scale. AWS Elemental MediaConvert is a file-based video transcoding service with packaging and encryption capabilities and can function as a standalone service or within a larger video workflow.

Quasar meanwhile is a cloud-based video quality control (QC) solution from Venera Technologies that provides end-to-end video/audio quality assurance, comprehensive QC and picture quality (PQ) measurements across any network. Customers can use Quasar with AWS Elemental MediaConvert to provide secure, scalable and efficient solutions for on-demand video workflows. Additional capabilities include standards compliance checks, and features to enable next-generation video deployment, such as 4K, and HEVC.

“Quasar allows comprehensive checks to verify syntax, regulatory and vendor compliances along with video/audio quality, said Fereidoon Khosravi, SVP, business development for America, Venera Technologies. “With support of all adaptive bitrate formats and broadcast/archiving formats, Quasar is ready for a wide range of content workflows.”
