Telestream Announces iQ End-to-End ABR Video Quality Monitoring Solution

Oct 16, 2018

Telestream, a provider of digital media tools, quality monitoring, and workflow solutions, announced the company will showcase new updates to its end-to-end ABR video monitoring and analytics solutions which include iQ Inspector, Surveyor, and iVMS ASM (intelligent video management system for adaptive streaming). The updates include significant enhancements to the iQ management solution enabling content producers and distributors to discern the status of their video encoding and distribution infrastructure faster than ever before, thus reducing the risk of revenue loss from poor subscriber QoE.

Available in both software plus hardware and virtual software-only packages for private and public cloud deployments, Telestream iQ video quality monitoring solutions deliver comprehensive visibility into what end-users are experiencing and provide accountability among partners delivering video content. Broadcasters, online video service providers, and CDNs must ensure that video is high quality, packaged correctly for each target device, and delivered to viewers with low latency in order to successfully provide a competitive streaming service.

Highlighted features:

  • Simplified management interface for centralized troubleshooting and performance reporting correlated across ingress, ABR transcoding, publishing, and distribution.
  • World’s first fully virtualized and containerized automation and orchestration video quality monitoring solution.
  • Full probe integration in iVMS ASM – Inspector Live, Surveyor ABR Passive and Surveyor ABR Active are now fully integrated – correlated information enables video quality assessment and troubleshooting to be more focused and efficient.
  • Surveyor ABR Active has new alarm conditions that align with industry performance metrics and real-world issues – slow startup times, buffer risk, HTTP header errors, playlist format.
  • Since monitoring needs vary by content availability (live events) or time of day (peak viewing hours), the solution adds scheduling for time synchronized monitoring across monitoring points.
