Qligent Integrates Multi-Channel Visualization

Simple three-step workflow helps users quickly address performance issues with high-density past and present data visualization across all delivery platforms on a single screen.

Qligent has developed a new multi-channel visualization application for its flagship Vision platform. The new application extends the depth of Qligent’s flexible multi-site monitoring and analysis capability, offering a detail-rich and intuitive way to monitor the health and status of many channels on a single screen.

Vision is Qligent’s enterprise-level system for monitoring broadcast and media quality through the entire delivery chain. It can be deployed on-premises, in the cloud or via Qligent’s Oversight managed service, the broadcast industry’s first true monitoring-as-a-service (MaaS). Oversight delivers the same benefits of Vision but reallocates the tactical day-to-day monitoring, analysis and troubleshooting responsibilities from in-house staff to outside experts.

Qligent’s unique spin on multi-channel visualisation helps engineers connect the dots when problems arise through a simple three-step workflow. Using Qligent’s customized video widgets (Vidgets), users can combine any monitoring parameters to quickly visualize performance issues that matter most to the user, determine impact on the viewer and drill down to the root of the problem. This simple manner of correlating a variety of data with quality and performance issues allows operators to quickly filter, sort and collect evidence across multiple channels, programs and their associated delivery platforms (terrestrial, cable, satellite and IPTV).

Beyond offering an overall status view, the new multi-channel visualization application crosses Qligent’s two major monitoring dimensions: Quality of Experience (QoE) and Quality of Service (QoS). The QoE dimension provides visualization of all audio and video streams (and associated data), giving users clear insight into current and historic performance of all channels across each delivery platform. The QoS dimension allows users to objectively measure transport and physical layers to ensure standards are being met (legally, contractually and performance-wise). Correlating and analyzing data across both QoE and QoS dimensions quickly answers the question, “Did my viewers see this problem?”

Qligent will demonstrate the multi-channel visualisation application as part of its Vision exhibit at IBC 2015, at Stand 8.A09 in Hall 8.
