Mariner extends xVu to Mediaroom 2.2

Service monitoring company Mariner has announced that its IPTV monitoring platform Mariner xVu has been extended to use new functionality in Microsoft Mediaroom Client 2.2.

According to Mariner this means customers can now identify transient video impairments with more granular subscriber-centric video performance data, identify set-top box to HDTV connection issues with advanced HDMI connection details, 
assist subscribers with menu navigation issues by using remote captures and control of the customer’s TV experience and verify in-home connection with active set-top box connection test.

“The combination of Microsoft Mediaroom and Mariner xVu monitoring enables IPTV operators to provide the highest quality video experience to end subscribers,” said Jerry Beresh, senior business development manager, Microsoft. “With a comprehensive view of service performance across the network, telecommunications operators can dramatically reduce capital and operating expenses while rapidly expanding IPTV services.”
