Video Clarity Announces ClearView 8.4

Update to ClearView 4K and 8K Video Quality Analyzers Supports Rec. 2020 Color Space and High Dynamic Range

Video Clarity has announced ClearView 8.4, the latest update to its ClearView line of video quality analyzers and player/recorders. With version 8.4, ClearView 4K and 8K systems have undergone significant changes to provide new colour-space-capable pictures and support for high dynamic range (HDR) as prescribed by ITU-R BT.2020. With these changes, the ClearView 4K and 8K systems will be the first on the market to interactively show side-by-side 4K or 8K pictures in native ITU-R Rec. BT.2020 color space, and allow comparison of HDR video in that colour space.

As the industry aspires to deliver 4K and, in time, 8K video, the trend is to apply advanced colour-space functions to pictures that are produced at 4K or 8K resolutions because as UHD products and services develop, the delivery chain will need to provide these new capabilities,” said Blake Homan, president and founder of Video Clarity. “We’ve added these advanced functions to ClearView so that program originators and manufacturers can easily study the picture quality and performance of their products and services as they transition to higher resolutions and pixel depths. The aim, of course, is to provide a better viewing experience to audiences around the world.

ClearView 8.4 will benefit both program originators and manufacturers of encoding and digital video-processing products, all of which must be able to study the visual and perceptual differences that result from enhanced colour space and HDR as they move from HD to UHD resolutions.

ClearView 8.4 provides an effective way to judge HDR video sequences on the same monitor, which was not possible until now. In doing so, ClearView 8.4 eliminates potential setup and calibration differences that can occur when using two monitors to compare original to processed HDR pictures. Also, in situations where a full picture comparison is required, ClearView 8.4 users can easily switch to dual output mode for exact sequencing of two comparative video sequences on two different monitors at the same resolution and frame rate.

ClearView 8.4 will now be available with every new ClearView system. Existing ClearView 4K and 8K users will be able to upgrade to ClearView 8.4. Active subscribers to the Video Clarity product-support and warranty program can update their systems at no extra charge.

The Idea for re:io works for Visual Data

Visual Data teams up with Telestream to take the pain out of DPP program delivery

 

The big DPP challenge – the idea for re:io

In December 2013, Matt Goble and Symon Roue of Visual Data saw a big opportunity. The impending DPP delivery standard presented an opportunity to build a service that would make it simpler for production companies to supply their content to UK broadcasters with the confidence that it would comply with the precise and exacting requirements of the DPP standard. Visual Data started work on re:io in February 2014 and launched the service on October 1st 2014, in time to support the DPP’s “File Based Delivery Day.” The user interface of re:io is built to appear like many online retail sites. It is described as a “vending machine” for video delivery services.

Company Background

Visual Data provides digital media supply chain services to some of the world’s largest entertainment brands. Its infrastructure is custom-built to repurpose video content and distribute it to any platform or broadcaster in any territory. The company’s suite of services includes translating metadata, captioning and digital delivery. Visual Data are approved to deliver content to the world’s leading platforms including Netflix and iTunes.

How re:io works

Any customer can establish an online account, and can pay for services by credit card or on account. The user interface (UI) is extremely clear and simple, showing a list of services available with costs applicable to each one. Services currently include format conversion, transcoding, QC, delivery and back-up storage.
