Monitoring has always been the engineers’ best friend as it turns apparent chaos into order and helps us understand what is going on deep inside a system to deliver high-quality pictures and sound. As OTT continues to play a more prominent role, the need to monitor internet distribution systems is becoming increasingly compelling.

Understanding what we need to monitor in the OTT IP world is not a trivial task. We’ve moved on significantly from needing to understand the baseband audio and video to analyzing the intricacies of an entire distribution network based on internet technology. A technology that is quite different from the IP systems used in broadcast studios.

This Essential Guide discusses how OTT works and explains what we need to monitor and why. CDN is playing a dominant role in the distribution of streamed media over the internet and understanding how and where to monitor it is critical for keeping viewers engaged.

Internet streaming media delivery is still relatively new, and broadcasters are understanding how competing vendors and service providers are working together. This Essential Guide provides that information and will assist with understanding the OTT and CDN world.

Sponsors Rohde and Schwarz present real-world examples of monitoring in OTT distribution systems including cloud-based solutions.
