Interra’s Baton Media Player Platform

The BATON Media Player Platform (“BMP”) is an industry grade multi-media player for enhanced debugging of content. BMP lists eyeball Quality Control checks enabled in the BATON test plan, allowing users to add necessary errors, as well as mark each manual task as reviewed.

The inherent features of BMP allow the user to minimize debugging time and navigate to the erroneous location with a single click. As an add-on player with the capability to open BATON verification reports, the user can pinpoint and play the media around the error location and manually validate the severity of the error. With features like “Slow playback around error”, “Play all errors”, BMP plays all the detected faults/errors in an automated manner, without requiring any manual intervention.
