Interra Systems - Baton

Baton is an automated content verification system for file-based SD, HD, and mixed workflows. Supporting multiple codecs and media containers, Baton ensures quality control of media content before playout.

A software only solution, Baton is highly flexible and can be quickly scaled for large facilities or high volume of content. More so, Baton protects investment against expensive hardware based solutions.

Baton is hardware and OS independent. Baton can be fitted easily in a facilities existing infrastructure. Baton's support for parallel processing enables convenient handling of increased verification load.

Reducing dependency on manual, subjective quality control, Baton enables automated QC, streamlined workflows, and cost effective operations.
