Vendor Spotlight: Qligent
Qligent helps broadcasters navigate a rapidly evolving media market.
Based in Melbourne, Florida, Qligent has more than 20 years of experience monitoring and assuring quality of distribution for thousands of channels in thousands of locations worldwide. It offers comprehensive monitoring and analysis solutions that empower broadcasters and content providers with insights, efficiency and confidence to make critical business decisions in an evolving media market.
“We serve a wide variety of customers, particular those larger customers where performance, scale, flexibility, and customization are critical aspects of their day to day operations,” said Brick Ekstein, CEO, Qligent. “Scale has multiple impacts, first of which is performance. While not every customer needs billions of data points analyzed every day, performance remains key for all customers, especially where custom integration is pulling data from many operational points within their business.”
The company’s key products include: the Qligent Vision monitoring solution; Vision Record, which automates a variety of recording and archiving workflows; and Vision Dymos, which helps users access cloud stream monitoring services on an as needed basis for live sports, concerts and other premium OTT/DTC media content.

For those looking for a traditional compliance solution or who need to replace outdated systems, Qligent Vision provides consolidated reporting and monitoring based upon what’s important to the user. The system can be automatically upgraded with meaningful analysis, simple repurposing and multiviewers for added value.
Vision Record automates your recording and archiving activities on every feed you monitor with user-defined video specifications as well as storage retention rules. Whether you are recording for compliance verification, keeping tabs on your competition for competitive insight, or monitoring the quality of the viewer’s experience, Qligent Vision makes it easy to retrieve, review and export media files across large and small content libraries.
With Vision Dymos, users can easily choose and configure specific video, audio and data retention needs on demand, in a dynamic and scalable way for monitoring OTT/DTC channels. The system can also be used to predict and control stream monitoring costs, under a true SaaS pay-as-you-go model.
Qligent solutions address customer needs and the market challenges they face.
“The biggest challenges facing our customers is their own roadmaps for the near and mid-term future,” said Ekstein. “With the landscape of broadcast in near constant flux it becomes more important than ever that they choose products and services which are flexible and scalable to meet their needs.”
