Caton provides high quality IP transmission services, giving broadcasters and content owners an extremely reliable means of transporting live content to viewers anywhere in the world. The Media XStream service includes providing connectivity through the Caton Cloud, by using AI-based intelligent routing, which provides unparalleled reliability of six nines or better.
As part of the service, Caton provides full visibility of the network metrics so engineers can see the paths and the capacities used. But to complete the monitoring capabilities, it is also important to monitor and measure the audio/visual content of the media streams.
This is what makes the partnership with TAG extremely valuable: not only does it offer a flexible multiviewer solution which can accept signals from multiple points and is cloud-native, but also incorporates the new TAG Content Matching Technology which provides a means of comparing any point in the workflow against a user-defined reference. The supervising engineer can see at a glance the audio and video quality at the receiver and be notified of any issues in the transmission.
Caton will demonstrate how the TAG Video Systems multiviewers can be integrated to monitor audio and video quality at the destination, on stand 1.F36 at IBC 2023, RAI Amsterdam (15 – 18 September).
