Interra Systems, a global player and provider of media QC, monitoring, and analysis solutions, has announced BMP, a new feature-rich media player with support for the widest range of formats and easy integration with broadcast workflows at any stage. Built for heavy-duty applications, BMP offers a broad spectrum of functionality in a single tool, enabling media professionals to play, inspect, and verify audio/video from various content locations, while collaborating across multiple teams and projects.
BMP brings greater efficiency to the process of content readiness throughout the various workflow stages, from ingest to distribution. The visual and technical information provided by BMP ensures that content looks and plays exactly the way it was intended. Supporting SDI playout and a wide range of audio, video, elementary, and container formats, along with extensive support for closed captions and subtitle formats, BMP offers video professionals one of the most comprehensive media players on the market.
“Interra Systems has long offered its media player as part of BATON, our acclaimed file-based QC solution. BMP enhances the media player with features that bring greater ease of use and efficiency to a broad range of broadcast and ABR applications,” said Anupama Anantharaman, vice president, product marketing at Interra Systems. “Video production and distribution workflows today are quite sophisticated, and having powerful tools to review and rectify quality issues is more important than ever before. We believe BMP will ultimately enable better viewing experiences for consumers.”
BMP features frame-accurate playback of high-quality video, playlist capabilities, mark-in mark-out to mark specific sections, audio waveform, loudness, and audio-level meters. BMP also has advanced tools to monitor the color intensity and range during playback to ensure pristine images.
BMP is offered both as a standalone media player and as an integrated part of BATON. When used for QC, BMP can be set up to play the detected errors in an automated manner, without requiring any manual intervention. It can also be used for fast navigation to different error locations, manual validation of error severity, error region marking, slow playback of the error, and more.
