Qligent in the Cloud at 2016 NAB Show

Qligent COO Ted Korte says the new visualization enhancements to debut at the 2016 NAB Show strengthen Qligent’s “mile wide, inch deep” approach to wide-scale QoS and QoE monitoring of TV for broadcasters and MVPDs.

Qligent will introduce a series of new visualization tools for its flagship Vision cloud monitoring platform at the 2016 NAB Show.

The new visualization enhancements address customer requests and industry trends as more broadcasters adopt cloud technologies in TV workflows. The new tools strengthen regulatory compliance, bandwidth optimization and workflow management.

Introduced first in 2014, Vision’s flexible approach to multiplatform TV monitoring has caught on with broadcasters and MVPD’s globally. In the past 12 months, Qligent has deployed several thousand networked monitoring probes across six continents. This level of scale has driven requirements for a much stronger and intuitive level of visualization, allowing monitoring staff to make sense of the rich and diverse amount of data collected.

“Considering the scale of which we can deploy Vision systems in on-premise, cloud and managed service configurations, we intend to continue down the path of IoT-based probe deployment to shrink the cost of data collection, and grow our contribution to big data and analytics ecosystems,” Said COO Korte.

Vision’s fully customizable dashboard is essential to monitoring success whether deploying Vision as a SaaS or via Qligent’s Oversight 24/7 managed service, the industry’s first monitoring-as-a-service (MaaS) platform.

The new visualization features to be introduced are an off-air counter record to how long a station has been off-air or out of compliance due to signal loss or other performance issues. The off-air counter is burnt into the recorded video.

Qligent has innovated flexible pie charts on the Vision dashboard to help broadcasters intelligently track bitrate fluctuations for multiple programs; and monitor usage across IP, RF, fiber and other transport layers.

Multi-dimensional Dashboards are ideal for systems with thousands of monitoring points, customizable by department and user.

A quick 1-2-3 step process determines the overall impact a problem has on viewership, as well as the impact to internal departments. Vision’s Impact Analysis allows for an actionable, reasonable and proportionate response when problems occur, significantly increasing productivity through quick determination of rapid response required to triage to nuisance faults requiring scheduled tuning.
