T-VIPS, a specilaist in professional video contribution and distribution solutions, announced the launch of the next generation of its video-centric network management solution, Connect5. This solution provides broadcasters and network operators with the ability to monitor and control multiple video network infrastructures.
“Our Connect5 solution gives network operators and broadcasters a simple and cost-effective way to set up, monitor and manage the delivery of professional video over today’s increasingly complex video transport networks,” said Janne T. Morstøl, COO, T-VIPS. “We are seeing a trend towards outsourcing of video network services. In this scenario Connect5 offers unrivalled flexibility as a media management system, enabling video transport infrastructures to be modified, monitored and maintained by different customers. In combination with T-VIPS monitoring solutions, Connect5 enables video quality to be verified at hand-over points to outsourced networks, with real-time alarms and extensive trend reporting ensuring that SLA targets are being reached. The ‘video-centric’ features of Connect5 also make it ideal for more traditional TV infrastructures, such as large terrestrial networks, where there is a need to monitor video content from specific services in multiple networks to individual components within a multiplex.”
