Telestream, a global player in file-based media workflow orchestration, media streaming and delivery technologies, has announced new post-origin content monitoring capabilities for ABR streaming media within its iQ ABR monitoring solutions.
Telestream’s OTT monitoring and compliance solutions now offer both content delivery network and advanced audio and video perceptual quality analytics of all leading codecs – H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, AC-3/Dolby Digital and E-AC-3/Dolby Digital Plus in a single easy to deploy cloud friendly platform. In addition to content accessibility, packaging analysis, and network performance, OTT monitoring provides insights to perceptual quality of the streaming content. Whether managing content preparation on premises, leveraging cloud infrastructure, or utilising technology partners, these capabilities allow users to track key performance indicators and alerts them of impairments that would affect customer experience.
“Our latest OTT monitoring advancements give content owners and service providers deeper visibility into video and audio quality. With media analysis monitoring, you can be assured that the OTT service is streaming smoothly, the video looks great and audio levels are hitting the mark,” commented Matthew Driscoll, Director of Product Management at Telestream.
As streaming services shift to dynamic ad insertion, OTT service providers are under increased pressure to ensure ads are inserted free from errors and performance problems. iQ Solutions enhance visibility of ad avails from ingest to post-origin with consolidated SCTE-35 reporting that identifies when ad opportunities are accurately delivered in the streaming domain.
“OTT content preparation and distribution is a complex endeavour. Telestream’s iQ solutions maximise service performance visibility for any organisation that is part of the streaming video chain. Our portfolio of purpose-built probes and management systems for data correlation are designed to take away the guesswork and focus teams on solving real problems,” added Driscoll.
