required by our growing organization. The Baton system also integrated
very well with our existing MAM, automation and storage systems,” stated
Mr. Deo Jordan, Head of Digital Broadcast, ABS CBN. “Our work flow
requires quality control at various stages of production, and Baton
provides the flexibility to identify errors that are relevant at each
stage. It also allows us to allocate processing speed in a way that
minimizes latency and maximizes efficiency of our operations.”
Baton has been a preferred choice of broadcasters, content providers and
broadcast services organizations in the APAC region such as Fox
International Channels, VTV Vietnam, Globecast Asia and Sony PCL.
“Baton provides full and accurate quality checks for audio issues,
format problems and metadata, helping ABS CBN save a great deal of time
automating its QC processes,” said Sanjay Mittal, Managing Director,
Asia, of Interra Systems. “These new workflow efficiencies will also
result in better video and audio quality for ABS CBN viewers.”
Interra Systems will be demonstrating the Baton file-based QC solution
at the Broadcast
