​Telestream to Acquire IneoQuest

Telestream is buying video quality monitoring and analytics solutions provider IneoQuest. The move follows its recent acquisition of QC technology specialist, Vidcheck.

The addition of IneoQuest technologies will enable Telestream to guarantee the quality of content delivered across managed networks or across the internet, it said.

“When it comes to media processing and delivery, the Telestream brand has become synonymous with quality,” said Dan Castles, Telestream's CEO. With the addition of IneoQuest technology to our existing QC capabilities, our customers will have the ability to monitor quality at any point in the delivery pipeline, making diagnosing and correcting a problem easier than ever before. With IneoQuest solutions, customers will also have access to actionable intelligence that will allow them to deploy content more strategically and gain new levels of confidence that their video is of the highest quality.”

IneoQuest's solutions can tell customers if content was prepared correctly, and if it was delivered properly over managed and unmanaged networks to their viewers. Remote hardware and software agents placed throughout the delivery network, give dynamic feedback on stream quality all the way to consumption point. If a problem with quality arises, having multiple monitoring points quickly isolates the problem area, allowing quick corrective action.

"Whether a broadcaster, a content provider, or a carrier, our customers want to understand where their content delivery networks are most effective, and where they are not,” explained Calvin Harrison, IneoQuest's CEO. “IneoQuest technology provides them with intelligence that allows them to assess the viewer experience at delivery and take immediate, appropriate action. We are happy to be seeing our technology contribute to Telestream's next phase of growth.”

The deal is subject to customary conditions and is expected to be completed near the end of the first quarter of 2017.
