Telestream Readies T&M For 2020 NAB Show

Telestream will showcase the latest ABR and video quality monitoring ecosystem at its 2020 NAB Show exhibit.

At the 2020 NAB Show, Telestream will display, demonstrate and answer questions about its latest video and audio test solutions for analysis, quality control and automated file-based QC, service assurance and regulatory compliance. Exhibit T&M highlights include new enhancements to its PRISM and iQ monitoring solutions to measure, monitor and manage exposure levels and color in production and post-production and ensure real-world ABR stream integrity.

In addition to its full line of waveform monitors, rasterizers and reference clock solutions, the company will also demonstrate the latest version of the popular PRISM media monitoring and analysis platform. PRISM provides thorough, scientific monitoring of IP/SDI 4K/8K signals and it comes equipped with specialized new tools for wide color gamut (WCG) and high dynamic range (HDR).

These new capabilities are designed specifically to accommodate new workflow changes in production and postproduction required to meet the quality expectations for broadcast and streamed content. PRISM guarantees objective and trusted measurements of technical quality at every stage of a production or broadcast chain.

IQ ABR monitoring solutions

Two vital challenges for OTT streaming providers revolve around managing the customer experience and capitalizing on advertisement revenue. It’s critical to “see what the customer sees” when creating an OTT network that is directly comparable with linear television in terms of quality of service and experience. Telestream’s iQ ABR monitoring solutions have enhanced post-origin content processing and delivery monitoring support for DASH and CMAF packaged ABR streams plus dynamic ad video quality assurance.

Sentry software-based quality monitoring probes are now integrated into Telestream’s Intelligent Video Management System for Adaptive Streaming Media (iVMS ASM) providing a comprehensive, real-time view into the health of adaptive streaming video services. These latest additions to the Telestream iQ ABR monitoring solution provide essential insights that enable content owners, broadcasters, and service providers to manage these critical issues that can make or break their streaming service.

As more organizations take advantage of direct-to-consumer streaming services, those that deliver quality, reliable streams has shifted from distribution partners back to programmers. Telestream’s new OptiQ Monitor is a cloud-based, monitoring-as-a-service, platform designed to give broad visibility into the health and performance of live OTT channels as delivered through CDN partners.

“Telestream continues to be a leader in multi-platform delivery workflows,” says Scott Murray, senior VP of marketing at Telestream. “Our success is reflected in our customers’ ability to publish more content to more devices with minimal additional investment.”
