Telestream To Unveil New Monitoring And Analytics System At 2019 IBC Show

Targeted at video monitoring and analytics across all geographies, at the 2019 IBC Show, Telestream will introduce its second OptiQ live service. OptiQ Monitor helps identify efficiencies in capital and operational expenditure while helping broadcasters, service providers and network operators to ensure optimum levels of Quality of Service and Quality of Experience for their customers.

The Telestream OptiQ Monitor is designed to help customers that have already put in place the infrastructure required to support their live streaming channels but have no monitoring infrastructure, especially post-CDN.

Marketed as a framework of live services, the new OptiQ combines live streaming, workflow, cloud, integrated monitoring, and containers used to start and scale up (or down) channels as required. The first application – OptiQ Channel – was showcased at NAB with its integrated monitoring and self-healing capabilities. The OptiQ framework enables the creation of multiple (and different) live services to meet different customer needs.

OptiQ Monitor enables users to integrate a superior level of video monitoring without needing to modify anything in their existing delivery chain. Building on this through OptiQ Channel, Telestream can provide all the necessary packaging, encoding, ingest environments to help customers build high quality live channels quickly and easily.

A key feature of the OptiQ framework is the ability to deploy Telestream technology in any public cloud data center. Now, Telestream has the ability with OptiQ Monitor to select any cloud data center, or as many as is required, and to specify the types of monitoring probes that customers want to push into those data centers. Then, the system architect hits ‘go’ and the entire monitoring network is automatically built up to perform robust QoS and QoE monitoring of a customer’s live streaming channels, even if they are not using OptiQ Channel to create those channels.

OptiQ Monitor allows users to observe how their CDNs are performing across multiple geographies. Also, they can monitor the performance of video encoders across their entire distribution network. If this performance is sub-optimal Telestream possesses a fast and cost-efficient solution. OptiQ Channel will deliver robust and efficient live streaming channels as a service in a completely cloud-deployed way.

OptiQ Monitor will be commercially available before IBC. At IBC, Telestream will showcase both OptiQ Monitor and OptiQ Channel.
