Telestream Readies Its NAB N.Y. Product Showcase


Co-located with the Audio Engineering Society‘s East Coast convention, the NAB Show New York showcases the best in next-generation technology for media, entertainment and technology professionals. Sessions and workshops are focused on television, in addition to podcasting and advertising.

Among the many companies exhibiting at the event, set for October 16-17 at the Javits Center, is Telestream. The California-based company known for its file-based media workflow orchestration, media streaming and delivery technologies will showcase its latest range of products and services touching all aspects of the digital media life cycle.

Delivering content in 4K/UHD with HDR is a big focus for Telestream, as doing so necessitates new tools and techniques. “The transition to 4K affects all points along the video workflow, and engineers, operators, editors and colorists alike must adapt to new and evolving standards that will dictate how content is created and delivered,” the company notes.

To ensure “pristine quality” from the beginning of a live production, during editing, through confidence monitoring during broadcast, the PRISM monitoring and analysis platform is engineered for IP, SDI and hybrid workflows involving HD, 4K, HDR and WCG (wide color gamut). The product was designed to simplify communication between IT and Engineering with easy-to-understand graphs. Equipped with new features such as false color, HDR measurement tools, and support for 25G networks, PRISM is designed for studios, outside broadcast trucks, and edit rooms.

For post-production needs, Telestream’s Vantage Media Processing Platform features automated ingest, media processing and comprehensive postproduction workflow automation.

For post workflows, the Vantage Media Manager provides a UI for Mac and Windows-based creative editorial to browse, preview, tag and submit jobs for processing.

Automated workflow also extends to quality control with Vidchecker and Aurora providing file-based QC and Correction. As signals head for OTT, Multiscreen, or traditional linear TV, Telestream iQ and Sentry promise what Telestream believes is the “best possible video experience with hardware or virtualized probes providing comprehensive feedback on quality and availability at every point in the delivery chain.”

For live event streaming and sports, Telestream is promoting OptiQ Monitor, a cloud-native (and specifically cloud platform agnostic) system which offers real-time deployment of live ABR monitoring at scale across 282 public cloud availability zones in over 100 geographic regions. Using this set of cloud services, users canspin up monitoring projects with real-time video QoE analysis and a view of CDN delivery network QoS performance.

Telestream is privately held with corporate headquarters located in Nevada City, Calif., and Westwood, Mass.
