IneoQuest Wins SCTE 2009 Technological Innovation Award

VeriFrame™ Technology Enables Video Providers, Manufacturers, and Broadcasters to Automatically Verify Video and Audio Content

MANSFIELD, MA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2009) - IneoQuest Technologies, the leading global supplier of end-to-end video quality, service and revenue assurance solutions, today announced that their VeriFrame product was selected as the 2009 Technological Innovation Award winner by the Society for Broadband Professionals (SCTE). The award was presented to IneoQuest executives at the 2009 SCTE Annual Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony in London on Saturday, March 28, 2009.

"VeriFrame's distributed content verification technology helps our valued customers to meet the challenging demands of monitoring the transmission of digital video -- ultimately playing a major role in lowering overall operational expenses," said Stuart Newton, general manager of European Operations for IneoQuest. "We're honored to be recognized for our innovation by such an esteemed organization as SCTE."

VeriFrame's distributed video verification technology empowers telecom, cable and satellite operators, content providers, broadcasters and equipment manufacturers to efficiently capture, monitor, audit and verify baseband content -- validating the subscriber experience.

"The problems of monitoring digital transmission in a multi-channel environment are challenging. VeriFrame provides an in-depth, frame-by-frame, automatic analysis of the video and audio data streams, as well a mosaic of video thumbnails for visual confidence," noted SCTE President Dr. Roger Blakeway. "IneoQuest appears to have delivered a very applicable solution at the appropriate time."

About VeriFrame

VeriFrame is a baseband content monitoring and auditing technology that delivers both real-time and historical metrics and is ideal for use with a variety of solutions including ad insertion (e.g., splice performance and ad auditing) and distributed video verification where generic remote consumer video viewing products are typically used. VeriFrame enables video providers, manufacturers and broadcasters to automatically verify video and audio content -- frame by frame, detect black screen, luminance levels and freeze frame, and monitor audio levels. Additionally, VeriFrame provides an industry-unique mosaic view of the video thumbnails for immediate visual confidence monitoring and program play-out verification. Leveraging a powerful database architecture, VeriFrame also enables efficient retrieval and filter navigation of all monitored and archived video and audio information with thumbnail references for post analysis trending and performance tracking.
