Multiple Debuts in Bridge Technologies 2016 NAB Show Exhibit

Bridge Technologies introduced a variety of quality and compliance-assurance TV transmission and stream monitoring solutions at the 2016 NAB Show.

At the 2016 NAB Show, Bridge Technologies debuted the 2016 version of its Remote Data Wall (RDW). The RDW provides a more powerful method to create a customized ‘flight deck’ of data instruments with an easy-to-use toolkit. It also provides the ability to build data wall displays across multiple screens, viewed in the control room or remotely.

RDW is browser-based, using html5, and does not require the hardware that conventional data wall systems use to drive the display screens, nor the HDMI cables to connect them. RDW supports the creation of data wall displays across multiple screens that can be addressed and controlled as a single entity, and can be viewed either on dedicated groups of screens at one or more locations, or accessed remotely from any connected computer. Individualised subsets of information can be chosen to float as widgets above a computer desktop, allowing engineers to keep an eye on a particular aspect of performance while working remotely.

Timeline monitoring

The company also unveiled its new Timeline technology for exploring recorded monitoring data in a live NLE-style interface. It provides a completely new level of understanding of faults and outages, and is a powerful way of verifying SLAs and validating regulatory obligations. The timeline shows content thumbnails, alarm markers and all the metrics and status displays familiar from the monitoring system’s real-time graphical displays, making visual navigation through the data simple and intuitive. The ability to archive data recorded over a period of several months or years and play through it in the Timeline interface allows users to see recurring patterns and fault syndromes that may be invisible over a shorter timescale.

In addition, the company demonstrated the latest development of its popular Gold TS Protection technology that makes monitoring for digital services quicker to set up, fault-track faster, and more accurate and secure.

Omega support

Bridge Technologies also launched Omega, a personalised expert support program designed to help customers achieve and maintain higher monitoring performance with their Bridge Technologies systems. The Omega program is based around modules for Dedicated Expert Care, Automated Services and Recurring Events, and is structured to provide intensive support for customers by guaranteeing optimum system performance and continuity of knowledge for incoming engineering staff.
