Tektronix, an innovator of video test, monitoring and diagnostics solutions, has announced that its Sentry real-time video quality content monitoring solution now delivers live and on-demand video quality assurance across cloud and virtual streaming workflows. With its latest enhancements, Sentry simplifies quality monitoring across today’s complex environments giving real visibility into streaming content quality along with in-depth analysis and compliance reporting for OTT/multiscreen services with global scalability.
The overarching issue faced by video content providers moving to cloud streaming environments is visibility into content quality and where problems are occurring. Maintaining quality is critical to delivering the experience customers expect and minimising churn, a major factor in a streamed environment with low barriers to switching providers. By providing a single view that spans cloud, virtual and on-premise workflows, Sentry simplifies quality assurance compared to alternatives involving multiple monitoring platforms.
“In a fast moving and rapidly changing world, service providers need confidence that their content is present and is being delivered correctly, regardless of the underlying technology or scale,” said Charlie Dunn, general manager, video product line, Tektronix. “Sentry, which is already widely adopted across the North American cable industry and major European telecom operators, delivers that confidence while saving time and reducing cost.”
