Qligent Announces 2016 NAB Show Plan
Significant additional Qligent Vision monitoring features will be on display in the Qligent exhibit.
Early success has empowered Qligent to invest in Vision’s continued development based on industry trends and customer requests. Today, Vision enables the remote monitoring, analysis and troubleshooting of more than 30,000 television program streams across six continents.
Melbourne FL-based Qligent will introduce several new features for its flagship Vision cloud-based monitoring platform. The additions simplify system scalability in alignment with broadcaster growth.
Introduced in 2014, Vision’s flexible approach to multiplatform TV monitoring has caught on with broadcasters and MVPDs globally. Over the past 12 months, Qligent deployed more than 3000 networked probes worldwide for major broadcasters including RT (Russia Today) and 1+1 Media Group. Each probe monitors 10 to 250 streams of programming across terrestrial, cable, satellite, OTT and other delivery platforms.
Qligent’s flexible model for Vision offers both an on-premises option and deployment via its Oversight managed service, the industry’s first monitoring-as-a-service (MaaS) platform. The latter option offers a pay-as-you-go model that can additionally fill resource and skillset gaps for customers as needed.
“Smaller and smaller probe footprints along with cloud-based scale has enabled huge deployments more efficiently than ever thought possible,” said Ted Korte, COO, Qligent, “Qligent remains the only monitoring and analysis supplier that can effectively deploy these systems as both a SaaS and MaaS platform, depending on the customer’s needs and goals.”
Among the new scalability features for Vision include the introduction of Virtual Probes, which can analyze IP-based streams from anywhere in the field; and present that data on a centralized Vision dashboard in the cloud.
Benefits include a simple monthly fee, with installation and configuration achieved remotely in one day or less. Qligent’s Virtual Probes eliminate travel expenses and onsite commissioning. Because the probes are virtual, they can quickly be relocated to a new server anywhere in the world. This feature provides a unique benefit for monitoring one-time events like sports and live special broadcasts, enabling users to rent a virtual server or cloud, and avoid the labor associated with setup and teardown.
Each probe platform is selected to handle what the broadcaster needs instead of a one-size-fits-all approach. This allows for incredibly cost-effective last-mile probes, even when RF Layer monitoring is required.
