Agama introduces support for MPEG-DASH and broadens its OTT client and device support for embedded consumer-end service quality assurance
(LINKÖPING, August 29, 2013) - Agama Technologies (http://www.agama.tv/), the video service quality assurance expert, today announced it is using IBC2013 (http://www.ibc.org/) to present its latest OTT and multiscreen developments to the Agama DTV Monitoring Solution (http://www.agama.tv/solutions/), an industry-leading solution for continuous and real-time monitoring and QA of end-to-end video distribution. Agama will also be using this opportunity to preview its upcoming Version 4.5 of the solution.
At IBC2013, Agama will also present the latest edition of Analyzer OTT (http://www.agama.tv/products/headend-and-network-analyzers/agama-analyzer-ott), its sophisticated adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming QA probe range for fully automated QoS/QoE monitoring and testing of OTT video. This now supports the MPEG-DASH (http://dashif.org/mpeg-dash/) ABR streaming technology standard for active monitoring of live and on-demand MPEG-DASH streams, in addition to the already supported HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and Smooth Streaming protocols. With its combination of monitoring depth and breadth, concurrent capacity and ease of use, the Analyzer OTT is industry unique.
"Our solution can now, better than ever, support any combination of IP, cable and OTT video services; and, we continue to reinforce the position we have within true multiscreen and multiservice quality assurance," explains Johan Görsjö, Director of Product Management at Agama Technologies. "Monitoring information from the head-end encoding, the CDN edge-caches and the quality of the end-user experience, can be seamlessly integrated to create a full end-to-end understanding of the service quality - per customer, service, region and device. This helps operators to proactively resolve any issues before they impact on their customer base.
"In addition to the highlights already presented, at IBC2013 we will also showcase upcoming Version 4.5, with enhancements across the complete product suite. These include improved presentation possibilities with a new at-a-glance 'Worst Channels' dashboard widget and the new 'MPTS overview' for cable service monitoring, extended metrics in the Performance Management analytics application layer, and much more."
Agama is showcasing its complete solution for end-to-end video service assurance at IBC2013 in Amsterdam between September 13-17. For a live demonstration of cutting edge QA for IP, cable and OTT video services and to learn more about the Agama DTV Monitoring Solution, visit stand 4.A71.
