Qligent has been named as a finalist for the IABM Design & Innovation Awards 2017. The winners will be announced at a special IBC 2017 ceremony taking place on Saturday, September 16.

The IABM Design & Inovation Awards 2017 are spread across 10 categories with 40 finalists. Qligent was shortlisted in the Test, Quality, Control & Monitoring category for Match, the company’s new automated programmatic error detection software for its Vision cloud-based monitoring and analysis platform. Qligent will exhibit Match alongside other products at Stand 8.E47 throughout the IBC show, taking place September 15-19 at the RAI Amsterdam.

Qligent Match provides a real-time, automated, software-based solution for compressed and uncompressed signals on any delivery platform (OTT, IPTV, satellite, cable, terrestrial). The software spots programmatic errors and anomalies introduced by the repeated multiplexing, overlaying, embedding, inserting and other real-time processes as signals move downstream from the origination to the end-user.

Lightweight and affordable, Match arms users with a toolset to identify today’s most common media distribution errors, including airing of incorrect programs, the capture of programmatic local ad splicing errors, and assigning foreign languages to the wrong audio track among other errors. This approach efficiently addresses the growing problem of TV operations becoming more error-prone, driven by the rapid expansion of program streams along with the last-mile need for localization and personalization for the enduser.

“With so much transition taking place today in TV operations and content delivery, there is a growing need for an automated verification and reporting solution that targets the presentation of content as it is being delivered,” said Ted Korte, COO, Qligent. “Unlike other QoS, QoE, and Compliance monitoring solutions, Match is unique in its ability to verify the dynamic changes of the program stream across large geographic deployments, affordably, and in real-time. We are thankful and excited to be recognized by IABM for our product development and problem-solving efforts associated with Match.”
