Agama Technologies, the video service quality assurance expert, will be showcasing the latest extensions to its comprehensive offering for continuous and real-time monitoring, assurance and analytics of IP, cable and OTT video services at TV Connect 2014. The highlights include: fully integrated support for assurance of personalised advertising; further strengthened network monitoring density; and, the market’s most complete support for OTT and multiscreen service assurance.
The Agama DTV Monitoring Solution is an industry-leading solution for providing full transparency of video service distribution from the head-end to the viewing device. It supports TV operators’ business processes, across departments and workflows, with actionable insights that help to proactively manage service quality and customer satisfaction, whilst lowering OPEX and improving customer retention.
At TV Connect, Agama will reveal several new extensions to its solution, such as fully integrated support for monitoring SCTE-35 Digital Program Insertion (DPI). The Agama DPI capabilities, which have already been implemented by a major European pay-TV broadcaster, enable operators to deploy personalised advertising with confidence. Showcased is also the new Analyzer NET-800 that leads the way with high-performing and capable multi-gigabit monitoring in head-ends and across distribution networks. Already commercially deployed with a major IPTV service provider, the Analyzer NET-800 sets a new industry bar for linear TV monitoring capacity.
Agama also declares commercial deployments of multiple new OTT client integrations, including deployments on PC, Android and iOS devices, as well as on more OTT set-top boxes. This, in combination with enhancements across the complete OTT product range, strengthens Agama’s position in offering the market’s most complete support for assuring OTT and multiscreen deployments end-to-end, from service creation to end-customer consumption.
All these extensions are fully integrated into the presentation, correlation, alarming, reporting and analytics of the Agama DTV Monitoring Solution. This means that TV operators can directly leverage these new possibilities within existing workflow for operations, management and customer support.
“In today’s competitive video service market, we see a growing demand for operators to increase both revenue and organisational efficiency,” explains Johan Görsjö, Director of Product Management at Agama Technologies. “This can include new business models, such as personalised advertising; or providing more attractive services in the form of multiscreen and increased channel counts – whilst at the same time delivering such services in the most cost-effective way. Agama is proud to provide truly business-supporting solutions for this; and, to work with many leading operators in multiple aspects of their operations and service management. The extensions that we highlight at TV Connect further strengthen our offering for assuring all parts of the delivery chain.”
