Brix Networks adds live IPTV monitoring to portfolio
Brix Networks has announced new capabilities for its BrixVision Internet Protocol television (IPTV) portfolio that allow service providers and cable companies to monitor continuously live broadcast video streams and safeguard content quality in real time.
BrixVision Live Monitoring provides 24-hour, 7-day-per-week, in-network visibility into service quality by monitoring and analyzing live video streams at critical service demarcation points (demarcs) within the delivery network, such as headends, regional hubs and local video serving offices.
Strategically deployed Brix system measurement sources monitor video streams for impairments in the video content and those introduced by the network during transmission to the set-top box (STB), allowing providers to segment their networks and pinpoint where problems are occurring.
BrixVision Live Monitoring is designed for large-scale, live IPTV deployments.
