Pixelmetrix to Demonstrate IPTV Test Measurement and Monitoring Solutions
Pixelmetrix (News - Alert), a preventive monitoring (for digital television and IPTV) company, plans to cast the spotlight on its latest range of IPTV (News - Alert) QoS/QoE Test Measurement and Monitoring solutions this week at the IPTV World Forum Asia 2007 in Singapore.
The company plans to detail its newly launched IP 110 at its booth A55. This comprehensive suite for detailed MPEG over IP analysis for its DVStation-210 is in the demo line up.
“The use of IP in television applications is truly exploding – from the studio, to headend, to end delivery via IPTV networks,” said Danny Wilson, Pixelmetrix President & CEO in a Tuesday statement.
Wilson continued: “While the basics of television have not changed, IP does represent a major technology transition. Certainly, paradigm shifts such as this come with their share of technical problems, and Pixelmetrix is fully behind the IP transition through our expanding toolset.”
Wilson is scheduled to chair the Connected Home Asia Sessions 1 and 2, and speak at the Day 1 ‘Is Television a Business in its Own Right’ as well as Day 3 ‘Quality Assurance of Extreme Services’ panel sessions.
“There has been a great interest in IPTV from every corner of the world. A successful IPTV deployment, of course, requires a high bandwidth data path to subscribers and not every country has sufficiently advanced infrastructure. As such, since this will be one of the first events in South East Asia, we are very interested to monitor the response and success of this event,” Wilson added.
The company also plans to exhibit the Electronic Couch Potato & ECP Consolidator, designed to monitor the true customer viewing experience by providing measurements from the end point of the content deliver chain.
The EndGame - More Than Last Mile (News - Alert) will also be on display along with the DVStation-IP1. The EndGame is a surveillance system that presents a suite of true end-to-end Monitoring System for Quality of Experience.
The DVStation offers a one-stop monitoring engine for IP and Transport Stream Analysis, detailed service visualization and IP Headend Output verification for IPTV networks.
Pixelmetrix will also demonstrate the DVStorIP-Gen, an IPTV Test Stream Generator - a high-performance, cost-effective tool for the evaluation, compliance testing and verification of networks, monitoring and equipment analysis.
Pixelmetrix develops a host of IPTV and Preventive Monitoring systems that are positioned as offering unique attributes and versatility, allowing operators to achieve end-to-end visibility and keep tabs on their network architecture.
The IPTV World Forum Asia will be held from December 5 to 7 at the Suntec City Convention Centre, Singapore. Connected Home Asia is featured in conjunction with this event.
With the rapid growth in the demand for IPTV solutions, service providers must be able to adequately measure and monitor performance. Lacking this ability could cost the provider a chunk of their customer base as the quality delivered plays a large part in the selection of service for the consumer.
