DigitalGlue Completes IP Stream Monitoring Platform For Globecast

DigitalGlue has completed an IP stream monitoring platform for Globecast.

Based on Bridge Technologies' monitoring and analysis tools, the new installation gives Globecast technicians comprehensive visibility into the status of more than 300 North American IP video streams for heightened video quality and customer satisfaction.
"DigitalGlue has been one of our premier global partners for many years. The DigitalGlue engineers know our business well enough to anticipate our requirements and envision effective solutions, and we rely heavily on their foundational knowledge of media technology to keep our operation successful," said Jake Perez, senior information systems administrator, Globecast. "Not only do the new Bridge Technologies tools deliver the precise and specific measurements we need to ensure video quality with a lower operating expense than other solutions, but they're providing the foundation for a global initiative to propagate stream monitoring capabilities at all of our other business units."
The new solution uses fiber connections between the operations center and other Globecast points of presence in North America to route video through a variety of signal types including satellite RF, ASI, and IP. The Bridge Technologies probes monitor 300 video streams to check the signals for quality and compliance at various points from input to output.
DigitalGlue designed an open-architecture solution that enables Globecast to poll data from the probes and import it into existing systems, enabling operators to resolve problems quickly as they arise. Another key feature of the installation is an Internet GUI application that enables operators to troubleshoot issues from any location.
