Video Clarity, a provider of audio and video quality measurement and analysis systems, has launched ClearView Shuttle 4K, a new system that adds another 4K-capable solution to the company’s ClearView video quality analyser line. Originally designed as a portable, entry-level solution for HD video quality-of-service testing, ClearView Shuttle now includes record and playback capabilities for testing 4K video with audio. With the ability to record, play back, and compare sequences of uncompressed 4K video, ClearView Shuttle is ideal for device manufacturers and media operators that need to test new encoding technologies and existing processing devices already installed in their operations.
“To maintain video and audio quality as compression standards change, everyone along the broadcast chain needs to measure continually the performance of the compression engines on which their day-to-day operations depend,” said Adam Schadle, vice president, Video Clarity. “And now, as more and more devices with 4K capabilities are built and deployed, device manufacturers as well as operators require quality testing with the ability to record at native 4K resolutions in addition to HD and SD formats. ClearView Shuttle 4K is an evolutionary step that provides 4K I/O device and signal path testing at a lower price point with repeatable, objective quality measurements that closely resemble subjective results.”
