IntelliMatch HD/SD-SDI Signal Monitoring and Content Comparison

Interact with this product in a Layout Tool:

The 7860IM2-HD IntelliMatch product is the most advanced tool for performing signal monitoring and analysis on HD/SD-SDI signals and for performing content comparisons between signals using the latest digital signal processing technology. Using the 7860IM2-HD allows a broadcaster or content distributor to efficiently and confidently automate the monitoring of the signal path, and to identify any problems as quickly as possible. The 7860IM2-HD does analysis on four inputs, and content comparison on two paths of two inputs.

The 7860IM2-HD performs video analysis using the industry-proven Evertz AVM (audio-video monitoring) core, which includes loss, frozen and black detection for video; loss, level over or under for audio; and loss and line detection for VANC data. Other analysis features are full SCTE104 parsing, and audio format detection for all 16 channels of embedded audio.

Evertz award-winning IntelliTrak audio/video lip sync engine is built into the 7860IM2-HD. IntelliTrak allows for lip sync measurement by using audio and video fingerprinting, working with real time, real world signals without the need to watermark. It can either be used standalone (both signals present), as a remote probe (insert its fingerprint into the VANC), or as the measurement device for a remote probe (receives fingerprints inserted in VANC).

IntelliMatch Application - Transmission Monitoring

IntelliMatch expands on the audio/video fingerprinting technology to perform advanced content comparison functions. Using the 7860IM2-HD, signals up to 10s apart in time can be analyzed to determine differences between them. Video differences tracked include logo placement, aspect-ratio changes, macroblocking and artifacts. Audio differences include content and level differences on a channel by channel basis. This allows automation of quality control to catch common problems such as misplaced branding, missing or incorrect subtitles, or wrong audio language or subtracks.

IntelliMatch Application - Remote Lip Sync Measurement

In addition to the quantitative measurements between two signals, the 7860IM2-HD output supports performing a video difference between two signals (A-B, for Y, CbCr or both) or a customizable video split, which allows qualitiative measurement of the two signals simultaneously. Another tool is on-board PSNR calculations, which can be done to perform quality measurements between two signals.

The 7860IM2-HD is VistaLINK® enabled, offering remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) giving the flexibility to manage operations, including signal monitoring and module configuration from SNMP capable control systems (Manager or NMS).

The 7860IM2-HD occupies two card slots and can be housed in the 1RU 7801FR frame which holds up to four single or two dual slot modules, the 3RU 7800FR frame which has a 15 slot capacity, or the portable 3RU 350FR frame which has a 7 slot capacity.
