Bridge Technologies’ IBC Grand Plan

At IBC 2019, Bridge Technologies will have its largest and most prominent stand to date.

Bridge Technologies has announced its plans for IBC 2019. It begins by teasing an “exciting” announcement for IBC opening day. Details to be reported on The Broadcast Bridge asap.

“We’ll be able to meet many more prospective customers and show a much more representative selection of our broad product range than we’ve been able to before,” said Simen K Frostad, Chairman, Bridge Technologies. “We’ll also have more space to welcome our existing customers and partners and make them even more comfortable.”

Upstairs on the Bridge Technologies stand will be the NOMAD Café. Not only will it provide an excellent space for meeting and relaxing, but it will also feature demonstrations of NOMAD, the ultimate highly portable, all-in-one monitoring and analysis solution for the technician on the move.

“We also have an exciting announcement we will be making at IBC that will confirm our technology leadership in helping our customers manage their networks,” Frostad continued. “We will, once again, be well ahead of the game, providing the solutions today that our customers will need tomorrow.”

The larger stand area provides the company the best opportunity to showcase its well-known end-to-end monitoring and analysis solutions.

Bridge Technologies will be discussing with visitors the continuing high level of interest in, and success of, the VB330 network probe with its unique support for Remote PHY/L2TP. This makes the VB330 suitable for unpacking and monitoring the multicasts targeted towards Remote PHY CCAP nodes – and thus the ideal probe for cable operators looking to maximize the quality of experience they offer to their customers.

Bridge Technologies recently announced that its VB330 Probe with support for Remote PHY received two awards from SCTE (the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers) including the SCTE 2019 Technological Innovation of the Year award.

Visitors will also be able to see for themselves the range of application areas beyond IP network management that Bridge Technologies’ solutions address, such as RF interfaces, satellite, terrestrial and broadband cable. For RF, for example, Bridge Technologies offers the VB120 broadcast probe, an efficient and powerful monitoring solution, covering the most commonly available signal formats. In particular, the VB120 is capable of monitoring IP unicasts and multicasts, OTT/ABR streams as well as a whole range of RF formats.

For satellite, one of the solutions Bridge Technologies can offer is the VB273 Intelligent Redundancy Switch which provides full dual path redundancy for satellite signals with autonomous operation and deep signal analysis on both signal paths for the ultimate in switching decision making. The solution is ideal for providing fast and robust redundancy switching for permanently installed satellite up-links or in outside broadcast systems.

Among Bridge Technologies OTT solutions is the VB288 network probe, which performs objective video and audio monitoring of MPEG-2, H.264/MPEG-4 and H.265/HEVC streams and offers a unique web browser-based remote video-wall capability providing full visual status from anywhere.

Also available is the microVB system, a breakthrough in both form-factor and functionality for real-time analysis of access network and customer home network performance. This unobtrusive device provides deep packet inspection and end-to-end visibility in broadcast quality media delivery over any IP-based infrastructure including OTT media in unmanaged networks.

The market-leading VB440 dual 100 Gigabit Ethernet network probe, with its intuitive Instrument View user interface, will be on display catering for the production industry, and can also be seen as part of the IP Showcase and Future Zone.

As always, the social side of Bridge Technologies’ presence at IBC will be to the fore, with mojitos on the Friday and Saturday. As at previous shows, Bridge Technologies will also be hosting boat trips on Amsterdam’s legendary canals through Monday.
