Service Providers

As the world moving to IP and more MSOs, content providers, cable operators, telecoms and broadcasters face new challenges in delivering video over IP. Video over IP is not just another data stream.

IP networks provide a highly attractive infrastructure for video broadcast, combining low cost, flexible delivery, easy personalization and attractive redundancy options.

Increasingly, the idea of moving video content over IP has been gaining momentum among content providers, infrastructure companies and operators.  IP technology is being utilized to leverage existing capabilities in several domains such as enabling true multiple -play of voice, video, and data services, cost-effective models for content providers and infrastructure companies, and scalable solutions to support increasing demands for more services.

Multi-Screen

multi-screen 2 -7f9fcThe broadcast industry is undergoing a major transformation with viewers embracing anytime-and-anywhere TV consumption. Operators seeking to provide bundles of services that appeal to their subscribers (e.g., TVs, tablets, PCs, and smartphones) and different networks (pay TV, over-the-top, and mobile) calls for an increasing number of video formats that need to be efficiently and reliably delivered to consumer screens.

ATEME’s Multi-screen Solution addresses this challenge for content distributors and Pay-TV operators with a focus on the End User’s quality of experience, and especially video quality at the lowest bitrates. This allows content providers and infrastructure companies to implement new business models.

The main technical challenges with IP transport are associated with QoS.

Although IP has tremendous capacity, today’s networks, by nature, are not yet designed to handle video data’s unique characteristics. The following challenges exist in IP-based networks: Jittering, Packet loss, Re-ordering, Bandwidth management and more.

Olvitech SVN group is offering solutions which overcoming these challenges, and together with the system layer, provide a highly reliable solution for video transmission over IP networks.

Test and Measurement Equipment

The complexity of today’s video delivery chain makes troubleshooting more difficult and monitoring more important than ever before. With effective monitoring, broadcast, cable, DSL, and telco operators can isolate and troubleshoot video signal problems before they interfere with the viewer experience. Therefore, advanced signal monitoring technology is crucial for delivering the absolute highest quality of experience (QoE) for audiences watching at home, on computers, or even on mobile devices.

Our comprehensive digital video system monitoring products ensure consistent, high-quality content delivery by providing continuous logging and monitoring of multiple signal types in both digital TV and IPTV networks. Broadcast engineers can remotely identify and resolve problems before they occur, respond to alerts and alarms, and quickly isolate the cause of outages with real-time system metrics and comparative analysis of critical measurements and system logs.

Sencore’s signal monitoring solutions include the MPEGScan Compressed Media Compliance Analyzer, providing in-depth analysis of all compressed video media, as well as signal monitoring products for RF, IP, and MPEG2/4 transport streams.
