Bridge Technologies Monitoring Verifies Quality For 14 Million Viewers

Bridge Technologies ensures high-quality of Thailand’s TV5 and TV7 IP Contribution Networks

Royal Thai Army Radio and Television, producers of Thailand’s most popular broadcast services TV5 and TV7, are using Bridge Technologies systems to achieve and maintain the best quality for new digital services. Leading Thailand’s digital transition, the broadcaster operates two of the country’s new digital terrestrial multiplexes serving more than 14 million viewers in 39 regions.

Bridge Technologies monitoring probes provide detailed real-time analysis and monitoring of the multiplexes transmitted from TV5’s headquarters in Sanampao, Bangkok, over third-party contribution links to the regional uplink site.

Use of third-party contribution and content distribution networks is becoming more common in the industry because it allows operators to increase geographic reach, competitiveness and efficiency.

“To encourage customers away from analogue to an all-digital terrestrial service we have to guarantee a better quality of service,” Colonel Yosapon Meeprom, Director of Technical and Broadcasting Dept, Thai TV5, explained. “Because our multiplexes are carried over commercial links that we don’t directly control, we need enforceable SLAs, and for these we use technical metrics that the Bridgetech system precisely measures in real-time.”
