Bridge Technologies to feature microVB remote IPTV analyzer, VideoBRIDGE v4.2
Bridge Technologies will highlight its microVB miniaturized remote monitoring and analysis system for IPTV applications as well as its VideoBRIDGE v4.2 software release at IBC2009.
With the microVB system, IPTV operators can gather complete and accurate data about the performance at the viewer's set-top box, using a user-installed monitoring device.
Enabling deep packet inspection without requiring a technician to visit the customer's home to install the device or diagnose problems, the microVB is robust and small enough to be delivered to the customer by mail. Once installed, the microVB automatically locates an appropriate server, starts monitoring the quality of the signal received and reports QoE parameters.
VideoBRIDGE v4.2 software introduces new capabilities for fault-tracking, a revised and improved interface, and increased integration between microVB systems deployed at subscriber premises and the server network.
