Agama to showcase new OTT and multiscreen QA solutions

Quality assurance specialist Agama Technologies will use IBC to showcase version 4.5 of the Agama DTV Monitoring Solution.

Agama’s quality assurance client for embedded monitoring is available for all major OTT device platforms, including iOS, Android, Silverlight for PC, Windows Phone and Xbox, JavaScript (Smart TV/HTML5) and Flash.

According to Agama, This range of client support makes quick and streamlined implementations possible and enables operators to gain visibility of the end-user quality experience and behaviour regardless of the mix of end-devices.

Agama will introduce the upcoming version 4.5 of its platform, with enhancements that include a new at-a-glance ‘Worst Channels’ dashboard widget and a new ‘MPTS overview’ for cable service monitoring, as well as extended metrics in the Performance Management analytics application layer.

Agama will also use IBC to present the latest editioin of Analyzer OTT, its adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming QA probe range for fully automated QoS/QoE monitoring and testing of OTT video. This now supports the MPEG-DASH ABR streaming technology standard for active monitoring of live and on-demand MPEG-DASH streams, in addition to the already supported HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and Smooth Streaming protocols.

“Our solution can now, better than ever, support any combination of IP, cable and OTT video services; and, we continue to reinforce the position we have within true multiscreen and multiservice quality assurance,” said Johan Görsjö, director of product management at Agama Technologies. “Monitoring information from the head-end encoding, the CDN edge-caches and the quality of the end-user experience, can be seamlessly integrated to create a full end-to-end understanding of the service quality – per customer, service, region and device. This helps operators to proactively resolve any issues before they impact on their customer base.”
